Remote Access VPNs: Business Productivity, Deployment, and Security Considerations

Cover
Remote-access VPNs allow secure access to corporate resources by establishing an encrypted tunnel across the Internet. The ubiquity of the Internet, combined with today's VPN technologies, allows organizations to cost-effectively and securely extend the reach of their networks to anyone, anyplace, anytime.

VPNs have become the logical solution for remote-access connectivity as they:

  • Provide secure communications with access rights tailored to individual users
  • Enhance productivity by extending corporate network and applications
  • Reduces communications costs and increases flexibility

This white paper provides a review of IPSec and SSL VPN technologies and discusses the steps to deploy and secure remote the remote-access VPN.
