Add VPN or DirectAccess
Windows Phone desperately needs support for Cisco SSL VPN, to allow people using their phones for work related purposes to connect to their office network.
Using SharePoint is a possible workaround, but assuming that everyone would keep their files on the server seems plain absurd.
Without VPN I don't see a reason why I would switch from my iPhone to Windows Phone, no matter how fast or beautiful it is.
My company already has Cisco AnyConnect deployed for VPN access. I don't see any reason why it would deploy SharePoint to support 50 or so odd phones out of 1500.
Without VPN Windows Phone 8 can only dream of being a business users first preference.
Need urgently vpn client
add vpn support as all other major mobile os have done.
Need a VPN Client with PPTP Support
Should be able to remote desktop to any Windows box accessible from VPN or on the network.
Add VPN ( PPTP ) for windows mobile 7
please add vpn.in my country internet is full block and we need vpn for internet!!!
Work for large company who uses MDM Airwatch. We have VPN deploying to IOS and Android. Really urgent to get VPN!!!
VPN is a must have for business
Pls add VPN, my company requires me to login using VPN. I used WP7 for over a year. If WP8 get it, I will definitely switch to WP8.
Frankly, my Lumia 920 with WP8 is the Best phone i ever had and we would use in our company too. But sadly, the single fact that there is still no VPN Support makes it completely useless for Business purposes. Just pathetic. Please add VPN feature asap.
wp team is worst ever!!!
Add VPN to WP8 and allow those devices to be considered as a mobile option in our corp.

Enjoy http://www.wpsauce.com/2013/02/windows-phone-8-strictly-mediocre-microsoft-worried.html and remember - Microsoft simply does not care for business users. They want Blackberry to survive for a while. And they like to see Google succeed with Android (licensing patent fees). This is ill.
If you want a business phone, for now Android is way better (WP8 user)
for a business-phone a must, is Windows Phone into business?
VPN would be VERY helpful. Please.
Really??? So many Updates and still no VPN?! If you could just explain to us, WHY???
LEAP required please, I beg you.
without VPN in windows phone then its useless.. none of the companies will consider this phone for their business needs... please add this in the next release..
VPN is needed, especially for chinese users. guys, just take Great Fire Wall into consideration, OK? How can we use apps like facebook and twitter without VPN?
W/o VPN this is of no use. not for business users. If I need to access my office files and intranet portals while on the go, do i need to use a separate phone (idiotic!!!!). Please dont suggest tethering with my notebook as it kills the purpose of mobility.
Also if the feature is included would that also be available as a patch for existing WP8 users or will it be for users who bought the hardware after the upgrade ?
I would only purchase it if the functionality is added.
P.S.- bought a NL720 for my wife a month back to test the waters but now am wary of buying a WP8 phone for myself because of the limitations in business use.
I need vpn
I love WP! I'm using it since day one! But my patience is almost over! I need VPN! Without it, I'm forced to change the os and my phone unfortunatly
Please don't add VPN support. Sniffing public hotspots is sooo much fun!
I thought this was coming GDR2 but I just heard it wasn't now, WE NEED THIS. I can tell you this for sure, the next phone I get will support VPN.
