    Short Answer: Yes (on OS X).

    Detailed Answer: Depends on your environment.
    This is simply a Smart Card Reader. For VPN connectivity you would need other correct components in place:
    1) Tokend - Low-level comms to the Card Application (ie. Applet)
    (What Application profile you have determines what Tokend you need)
    2) VPN Services - VPN (PPTP, L2TP over IPSec, IPSec) is built into the Networking
    Services of OS X. SSL VPN would be established using a browser (ie. Safari)
    and would be reliant on the implementation of the VPN Vendor properly
    using the Keychain APIs.

    So, it would work for you, but this is not all you need for VPN connectivity.
