Secure, fast and economical connections between sites and branches
Enterprises and institutions are discovering that universal networking of their sites is the key to faster, seamless communications—and thus to true competitive advantage. The demand for cost-effective, powerful and secure ways of providing multi-site connectivity is constantly increasing.
Virtual private networks (VPN) provide an economical alternative for inter-connecting multiple sites, regardless of distance. The key factor: VPNs use the low-cost public internet as a medium for communications, protecting connections so that they are completely secure from unauthorized access.
By means of the Internet, multiple sites are connected to form a single large entity—a Wide Area Network or WAN. Employees at every site use this WAN for realtime access to vital information and resources. Remote production facilities and logistics centers are seamlessly integrated into one single ERP system, connecting entire supply chains over VPN—including their suppliers and customers.
Supermarkets and retail stores are connected to their banks via VPN and communicate transactions directly to their headquarters. Large-scale projects are coordinated worldwide via VPN. Insurance company representatives in the field use VPN to connect to their company intranet, allowing them to access the very latest information.
