Virtual Private Networks

 

Virtual Private Networks are an incredibly useful tool that few are aware of. They create a personal and encrypted link between 2 'private' networks over a non encrypted 'public' link. This means that users do not need to be in the same location as the central servers to be able to securely access all their personal information.

Combined with remote administration tools it is even possible for users to turn on and control workstations as though sat at the office.

A VPN can allow a roaming client to access emails and files through very secure links from any internet connection.
