Benefits Of Ssl Vpn Remote Access Solutions Today a great percentage of employees are part of the mobile workforce and thanks to
Virtual Private Network (VPN), they are able to access their companys intranet portal even hundreds of miles away from the office.
VPNs make it possible for the mobile workforce to access the company network securely. Simply put, a VPN is a network that uses a
public telecommunication infrastructure, such as the Internet to allow secure access between the company network and the users
machine by encrypting all data sent. Three words aptly describe VPN and they are fast, pervasive, and secure. VPN is fast thanks to
the Internet, it is pervasive since internet connectivity is ubiquitous and it is secure since it uses encryption technologies. The two most
used forms of VPNs are IPSec VPN and SSL VPN. The main difference between the two is that IPSec VPN requires third-party
hardware and / or software while the SSL VPNs do not. In order to access IPSec VPN, an IPSec client software application needs to
be installed but in the case of SSL VPN, the web browser itself acts as the client application as most web browsers have SSL
capabilities built in. SSL VPN remote access solution enables anytime, anywhere secure remote access to business applications and
