With organizations targeting the global marketplace, data access and information sharing with mobile employees have become a challenge. To ensure the smooth flow of communication and information exchange with them, organizations require virtual networking technologies. Remote Access VPNs (virtual private networks) have become a preferred solution for organizations that need their field employees or remote offices access the local network privately and securely.
Also termed as “anytime, anyplace network”, remote access VPN provides secure access to designated users. A user can connect to the headquarters through an encrypted channel and exchange information. This method increases the efficiency of mobile workers, while reducing communication costs. Also, VPNs can be managed to provide limited access to certain users, such as contractors or vendors.
Remote Access VPN: Security Issues
- Virus outbreaks that corrupt the entire network.
