VPN and Secure Remote Access SolutionsTechnology has changed the way businesses communicate and operate. The move to Internet solutions and e-commerce is driving the need for Secure Connectivity Solutions. Company work continues to extend past the office walls as more people work from home and others are constantly mobile. Secure Connectivity extends corporate network access to business partners, customers, and telecommuters. Secure Connectivity ensures the confidentiality and integrity of corporate communications, regardless of where these communications are occurring. Secure connectivity ensures secure transportation of applications and critical data across numerous network environments. Secure connectivity is offered in various forms, including VPN services for remote and site-to-site connectivity. The primary function of secure connectivity is to protect voice and data confidentiality. Protecting the privacy of information allows organizations to control costs, reduce the deployment burden, lower the cost of ownership, and increase profitability.
Tunneling technology enables one network to send its data through a different network's connections. Tunneling encapsulates a network's protocol within packets that are carried by the second network. It is a method of using the Internet to transfer data from one network to another while securing the data packet with a protective encryption shell. The recipient and the sender must have a key to unlock the encrypted packet, and this key provides the security.


VPN's (Virtual Private Networks) provide protection from data interception using secure connectivity, encryption, and traffic authentication.

There are two primary types of VPN's:

  • Site-to-site VPNs provide secure connectivity between offices
  • remote access VPNs provide secure connectivity for remote endpoints, such as mobile users and home offices.

 

Virtual Private Networks (VPN) allow remote workers to have the same degree of access to corporate information as those based in the main office… including the ability to check the latest order status, inventory levels, etc... while at the customer's site. No need to call a second meeting with the customer once everything is confirmed with the home office. It all can be done on the first visit.

When the serious weather hits, main office employees are able to use Secure Socket Layer virtual private network (SSL VPN) to securely connect back into office resources, stay connected, close deals, and operate productively from home.
