If you're using an IPsec VPN, you can build a configuration profile with Apple's Configurator tool and do some neat stuff with VPNs.

I believe always-on is one option, but the option that intrigues me the most is to automatically connect when a certain domain is requested after a lookup failure. If you have an internal domain, say, ".randomtisk", you can set it to try, then connect the VPN if the DNS lookup fails - this way it will work normally at home and transparently connect to the VPN when you're away.

NOTE: I haven't actually tried this yet, it's a work in progress.
