What is a VPN?
A virtual private network (VPN) is a technology that creates a safe and encrypted connection over a less secure network on the internet. These tend to be found on public WIFI, i.e. cafes, bars, airports and train stations.
VPN technology was developed as a way to allow remote users and branch offices to securely access corporate applications and other resources. To ensure safety, data travels through secure tunnels, and VPN users must use authentication methods -- including passwords, tokens or other unique identification procedures -- to gain access to the VPN server.Contact us today to find out more
Remote Access VPN
This uses a public telecommunication infrastructure like the internet to provide remote users with secure access to their organisation's network. This is especially important when employees are using a public Wi-Fi hotspot or other avenues to access the internet and connect to their corporate network.
A VPN client on a remote user's computer or mobile device connects to a VPN gateway on the organization's network. The gateway typically requires the device to authenticate its identity. Then, it creates a network link back to the device that allows it to reach internal network resources.
