Firewall Enterprise (Sidewinder) VPN with iPhone/ipad

Does anybody know, if it is possible to create a VPN connection between an iPhone/iPad device and a Sidewinder Firewall?

Best Regards and thanks for any hints

The iphone/ipad currently leverages some proprietary Cisco/Juniper code which prevents it from working with generic IPSEC devices. We would have to work with Apple to officially support us.

Is this now supported, or is there an ETA for this?
