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

If you do not want to support VPN at least say so or add support in windows phone next update ( windows phone blue) or make the connection gateway to work on OS not only Browser. I wanna lumia920 but it does not let me to buy. Without it i can not use facebook,twitter, or even Skype.
I need VPN I live in China. Otherwise I have to use other OS!!!!

VPN is a must

It's waste of money if we buy windows phone without VPN
only feature, or lack thereof, preventing me from spending $700 on a 920 is VPN!
PLEASE ADD VPN WE NEED IT...
add vpn to system its essential for users living in the countries with internet limitation.
Please get Cisco or some compatible VPN access. This is critical for enterprise use. If not, then WP8 and W8 RT will likely not do well. Even apple Ipad has vpn.

VPN option for windows phones should be 1st priority... Else why should we keep them if we can't have all in one devices...All corporate enviroments have only some vpn open ports for corporate applications. Xbox option it's nice to these phones also... but microsoft wants play phones or the a total solution phones to make you buy them?
When i had mine (lumia) i was very happy until i show that i didn't had this option.. and i had this option in 2 android devices (tablet, phone)... and blackberry....
PLEASE give us VPN, you make a nice peace of work with windows phones...give this option too to give us more choices...

VPN Client is a very important one.. I just can't use wi-fi in WP8 in my office which uses VPN to authenticate to start using the Wi-Fi ! Please make it available quicker
NO IPSEC VPN...the lack of which drove my law firm's users towards iPhones, which is in turn driving them towards iPads and now increasing requests for Macs to replace their PCs...do you really care? If not, the get out of the "business oriented line" of mobile devices!

This should be Microsofts priority uno feature. Any smartphone shouldn't be without a VPN client. This is a necessity for many who use a Windows Phone as their work phone.

Anyconnect SSL VPN client needed!

Our software needs VPN for mobile access. We sell to thousands of customers around the world and our current recommentation is to avoid Wondows Phones! We tell them that only phones with VPN capabilites are supported. ie. iPhones and Android. This is a big loss for Microsoft.
This should be a must for any corporate cellular. And a feature needed to compete with IOS as well!
VPN is not a feature, instead it's essential for 75% of all users.
Yesterday I bought a new Lumia 920 in believe I could work with it. But sadly there is no VPN. So I'll have to decide whether I throw the phone away and say "that was it windows phone" and buy a iphone or android, or to wait until microsoft finally adds VPN.
Microsoft, please don't disappoint me, hurry up and release an update with VPN support.
I need PANDORA to work!
I NEED VPN!!!
VPN is a MUST have for any device to be considered as a businees device. I need this functionality for my business to even consider this as a valid platform - and we're a 100% Microsoft shop, too, except for the smart phones.
DirectAccess must also follow, especially since this is Microsoft's VPN replacement.
I can't sell my organization on a Microsoft product when competing devices are more capable of working with corporate resources than Miscrosoft's own devices are.
Don't see why this wasn't included originally
