VPNs allow employees to securely access the corporate intranet while traveling outside the office. Similarly, VPNs securely connect geographically separated offices of an organization, creating one cohesive network. VPN technology is also used by individual Internet users to secure their wireless transactions, to circumvent geo-restrictions and censorship, and to connect to proxy servers for the purpose of protecting personal identity and location.
VPN can deliver remote access connectivity features and benefits such as:
- Lower desktop support costs: Web-based access without preinstalled desktop software facilitates customized remote access.
- Threat protection: Integrated security in the platform protects against viruses, worms, spyware, and hackers.
- Flexible and cost-effective licensing: Start with as few as 10 users and scale as your needs change on a single license.
- Reduced cost and management complexity: Both SSL VPN and IPsec VPN on one device means you do not need other security device
