As a small business owner, long runs of private data lines between two or more locations may not be cost effective because of the strain on your budget or business plan. There is a technology that just may fit your need for two reasons.
The first is to create a secure network between two or more data points. By using data encryption at different bit rates, it makes it more difficult for someone looking at the traffic to detect the actual data being transmitted. The second reason is that it allows each individual networks to connect as one big data network and still limiting the security risk across an open network.
An example of this would be a network from New York to Washington DC, all the way over to Dallas, Texas. VPN allows all sites to work together as one.
By using VPN technology, you can provide both secure and private networks between two or more offices, including mobile users. VPN technology allows different bit rate encryptions to different remote offices, nodes, and storage locations to create a big private network between those sites without compromise of putting real IPs on secure equipment, making it less vulnerable to outside attacks.
Mobile VPN applications allow employees a secure connection into your offices without the need to bring their desktop or laptop computers with them or access intranet services without being at the office.
