Well ... what should i say, it has enough security (64&128 bit RAS)but - more security will give you slow connection so decide by yourself, and here's something more:

Sidebar: MS-PPTP Security

Several security problems with MS-PPTP
Keys are not 128 bits in length, as advertised
Uses RAS "shared secret" encryption
Shared secret is the password hash, which is very weak
Poorly designed control channel leaves server open to attack
Encryption can be disabled via the "You Are Now in France" attack
