VPN Authentication & Security
Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have changed the way people do business. Employees and business partners can now access sensitive business resources through the internet anytime, anywhere. At the same time, organizations need to be making VPN security and VPN authentication necessary.
VPNs ensure privacy by providing a private tunnel through the Internet for remote access to the network. For full VPN security, your VPN must be enhanced with a reliable user authentication mechanism, protecting endpoints of the VPN.
User name and password authentication is not enough – this method is weak and highly susceptible to hacking, cracking, keyloggers, and other attacks. It only takes one compromised password for your organization to lose control over who gains network access. Strong user authentication with a VPN provides true secure remote access for today's mobile workforce.
