VPN client software is a type of software that enables VPN client connectivity with a VPN server and/or the VPN itself.
It is installed and configured on a VPN client and provides access, authentication, data and other VPN services to the client.
VPN client software primarily provides VPN clients with automated and software-controlled methods for connecting to a VPN. Typically, the VPN client software bridges the connectivity and data services between the VPN client and VPN server. It provides end users or client machines with secure connectivity to the VPN server.
Some VPN service providers provide their own VPN client software for authenticating their subscribers and establishing a VPN connection with their service.
