Perfect Network Integration
VPN connections are an essential part of many people's daily life and therefore they have to be integrated seamlessly into the existing network infrastructure. Shimo detects changes in your network configuration and reacts accordingly: It automatically initiates VPN connections or reconnects interrupted connections - you don't have to take care of anything - Shimo does!
With Shimo 3 you are not restricted to one single VPN tunnel at a time. You can create one SSH tunnel to your client's server and another OpenVPN connection to your company's internal network - simultaneously! With this multitude of VPN tunnel combinations and different supported VPN protocols, Shimo is the swiss army knife for VPN connections.
Stronghold for your Passwords
Secure VPN connections are only really secure as long as the data used for authentication is stored safely. Therefore Shimo uses Apple's central storage for all your sensitive information: The Keychain. Both, your passwords and your certificates are stored in the Keychain and thus protected additionally by your OS X password.
With Shimo's Vault feature you can store any other file in a single location, which is conveniently accessible from everywhere within Shimo.
Always be up-to-date
Shimo keeps you informed about every important event. To achieve this it offers multiple different ways of getting your attention: Next to growl notifications and special sounds Shimo supports spoken text and custom AppleScripts. With those you can execute whatever action you want and connect it with a specific event in the connection process.
Hardcore Technology, Mac Simplicity
When we speak about VPN we think of encryption, authentication and low level networking. Abbreviations like 3DES, AES, PFS and DH make it even more complicated for a normal user to set up a secure tunnel. Shimo makes all this possible and enables really everbody to handle secure connections.
Nothing is impossible
Shimo supports almost every VPN protocol that is currently available. Next to the widely used CiscoVPN, Shimo easily handles OpenVPN and standard compliant IPSec connections. PPTP and L2TP are no problem either. With Cisco's new AnyConnect protocol the list of supported connection types becomes even longer. If you know any protocol not supported by Shimo, please let us know...
