Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
The affordable work-from-anywhere solution
We design, configure, and maintain virtual private networking (VPN) solutions which allow designated individuals to securely connect to internal company or home networks. This allows staff and other individuals with the right credentials to access all or only specific network resources from anywhere in the world – helping them cut down on travel costs, and giving them more time to be productive.
VPNs are secure
A secure tunnel through the internet is created every time a VPN connection is made to your network. This tunnel is invisible on the internet, and cannot be accessed by normal internet users. All data sent over the VPN is encrypted, and can only be decrypted by the systems on your network and the remote computer or device.
VPNs can be set up to provide remote users with custom access to company resources such as printers and scanners, entire servers, or just a single folder or directory.
VPNs are affordable
Because most operating systems support VPN connections, no 3rd party software is required. A simple once-off configuration on every device you want to have access to your network is all that’s required to ensure anytime-anywhere productivity.
Once your network has been setup for VPN access, colleagues, staff, and clients with the right credentials can access their designated internal resources – no special hardware, software or internet connections are required.
Note: Specialised VPN software packages which provide additional features on top of operating system defaults are available, but not essential.
VPNs are scalable
Because VPN connections are created and maintained by software on your network equipment, it’s easy to scale the number of VPN connections allowed at any one time. This makes it a solution that grows with your company without requiring significant expenditure.
