Security and VPN Based Solution Desgin and Implementation
A typical VPN might have a main LAN at the corporate headquarters of a company, other LANs at remote offices or facilities and individual users connecting from out in the field.
Virtual Private Networks (VPN) technology uses private encrypted tunneling, allowing networking of remote workers, branch office locations, and central corporate sites without dedicated physical circuits. VPN offers companies a safe, inexpensive means of using the Internet to access their internal networks.
Advantages of VPN Technology:-
Provides security while accessing your mission critical information
Saves on long distance charges when remote users are out of the dialing area
Requires less hardware, e.g., modems used for dialup connections
Reduces the number of telephone lines needed for Internet access
