We are currently running Act Premium 13, and are looking into installing the Act for Web to use Act on mobile devices. We would require our users to access on their mobile via a VPN to ensure data security. For anyone currently accessing Act on your phone or tablet by a VPN, how are your experiences with it? More hassle than it's worth, or are the extra steps worth the benefits of having access to Act on the go?

I would recommend you do a few tests for performance to see if it's a viable solotion for your organization.
It does work, the vpn can slow things down though.

Our IT department will not allow us to use a SSL connection as it is not secure enough. The only way we'd use it would be via a VPN connection, but if it's going to be more clunky than anything else APFW won't get used.

We are on the verge of implementing this VPN/Phone solution at a large client. I'll keep you posted of our experiences. We have been looking at it for a while and theoretically we can specify which portions of internet traffic go through the VPN and which ones don't. If that is true, as the IT guys are saying, then it should be pretty lightweight (we hope).

Mike, when you impliment VPN, do you utilize a service (like CyberGhost, or VPNBook, or Norton Hotspot); or do you just utilize the VPN that's native to Windows?
