I don't know if this is a new client (NCP has had an IPsec client for
a long time now), but it is certainly new that you can download a
30-day trial version.

NCP's client used to support IPsec-over-L2TP ("L2sec") but I don't
see any mention of this in the product specs. Note that this is not
the same as L2TP-over-IPsec. The latter is an IETF standards track
protocol implemented by Windows, MacOS Panther etc.
L2sec on the other hand was devised by NCP to get around NAT (before
NAT-T was available). It was never ratified and only implemented by NCP.

NCP is also one of the few IPsec vendors with a Pocket PC version.
