VPN and Point to Point Connectivity
Your small or midsize business probably depends on network connectivity to communicate and compete in the global marketplace. You also likely need to enable dispersed locations and remote employees to access your corporate network. But connectivity across public networks has inherent risks. Hackers and automated network sniffers constantly scan the Internet for vulnerable systems. And insufficiently encrypted traffic can expose your confidential information.
If you’re connected to a public network, you probably already have a network firewall in place — and you probably learned that such network protectors aren’t typically designed with small and midsize businesses in mind. They’re complex and difficult to install and configure. And they must be fine-tuned and updated regularly to defend against evolving threats. All these management tasks require IT staff, a costly resource that’s often in short supply.
There’s a better way. Adept ISM’s managed VPN services. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a way to communicate through a dedicated server securely to a corporate network over the internet. It is a secure and cost effective way of establishing connections between your offices distributed globally.
VPN lets remote users connect to your LAN over the Internet, which greatly reduces the cost and complexity of the remote connection. The savings begin with the fact that most small and medium businesses will no longer require a dedicated remote-access server. Businesses with a large number of remote users, say more than 75, might still require a remote server to handle such a high volume of traffic, but these companies still save money because nobody has to dial directly into the server.
Another benefit is that, unlike in a traditional remote-network setup, VPNs do not require similar hardware at both ends of the connection. VPNs allow corporations to utilize remote access infrastructure within ISPs. Therefore, corporations are able to add a virtually unlimited amount of capacity without adding significant infrastructure.
In addition to these benefits, we provide the highest level of security using advanced encryption and authentication protocols that protect data from unauthorized access.
