Business owners are rapidly adopting VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) as a secure method of allowing their remote users access to company resources and data.
When configured properly a VPN allows data to move from one point to another utilizing encrypted packets. It is estimated that an unsecured device when opened entirely to the Internet can be compromised in a matter of minutes.
Adding to this secure form of communications can be the utilization of border devices with proprietary operating systems such as either routers or firewalls. Also helpful in securing a network are blanket rules allowing the network to accept only VPN traffic.
Generally speaking a combination of VPN capable border security devices when coupled to a network infrastructure all do the part of directing, brokering, and filtering traffic before it gets to the server.
A VPN solution offers businesses fast, secure communications delivered in a reliable manner.
