The PPTP VPN app is a server-side implementation of the PPTP protocol. It is primarily used for client-server VPN tunnels (as opposed to server-server). The main advantages of this protocol are ease of use and low cost as the client-side software is built into all Windows OS, in addition to free clients for Mac and Linux distributions. Along with the advantages, it should be stated that the PPTP protocol is the weakest in security of all the main VPN protocols (IPSec, OpenVPN, L2P). The protocol splits traffic into control and data streams, and passes all control packets across the network without any encryption. The result is that PPTP is vulnerable to attack or hijacking and known breeches in security using this protocol have been demonstrated.

Other Apps and Services by Developer
The OpenVPN app is a server-side implementation of the OpenVPN protocol. This versatile protocol makes it ideal for either client to server or server to server VPN tunnels using TCP or UDP.
The Password Policies app can be used to enforce the password quality (strength) in use by end-users. Enforcing strong passwords and/or policies that can be used, for example, to expire passwords will ensure users assist in good security practise in addition to meeting regulatory compliance in certain industries.
The SMTP Server app uses Postfix (http://www.postfix.org/) in either of two modes - SMTP server or mail gateway. As an SMTP server, it can be used as an on premise mail server, providing email to multiple custom domains. It can be a cost-effective and secure solution to alternative cloud-based mail services like GoogleApps or hosted-MS Exchange. No per-user fees in addition to a number of plug-in app extensions that provide antivirus, antimalware and spam scanning, greylisting, archiving and more. Alternatively, this app can be configured as a pass-through filter, scanning email as it passes through to an existing mail server on your network. The most popular configuration in this mode is to filter mail before passing on to an MS Exchange server - preventing malware via email and spam from ever reaching the the Exchange server and users inboxes.
