Smooth and reliable cross-site communication is essential for efficient and economical operations, which makes this is a decisive factor for your success. The individual nature of the structures at each different enterprise demands a flexible solution that perfectly fits your needs and one which, above all, offers a secure network design—at multiple sites and offering high performance and protection against unauthorised access. VPN devices from LANCOM offer the versatility for the secure and reliable implementation of complex networks with large numbers of different sites, and also for smaller networks which integrate external employees.
Virtual private networks (VPN) are an economical solution for inter-connecting numerous sites, even if they are separated by great distances. The key factor: VPNs use the public Internet as a medium for communications over connections that are fully secured against access from the outside. A secure VPN connection allows companies to connect their branch offices or affiliates to the internal network. The access rights are controlled by virtual networks, which ensure that each and every network participant only has access to the corporate data that are relevant to them.
Today, a working world without flexibility is unthinkable. Reconciling work and family life, the responsibility to remote sales regions, working as a sales representative for foreign companies—these are typical issues forcing companies rethink their operations.
In the same way as a company can network its sites, VPN enables mobile employees and home offices to be quickly and, most importantly, securely integrated into the company network. The only requirements are Internet access and one small software tool: the LANCOM Advanced VPN Client on your laptop or PC. Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs can also communicate securely via VPN. Here, users can use the free app LANCOM myVPN to establish a secure VPN connection.
A VPN connection can be used to securely connect your branch offices to the corporate network, and to exchange data with partner companies. The access rights are controlled by virtual networks (VLAN), which ensure that each and every network participant only has access to the corporate data that is relevant to them.
Economically efficient solutions like this allow a number of securely isolated networks to operate in parallel on a shared infrastructure. The result: Huge savings in the costs of acquisition, configuration, and maintenance!
