A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across a VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.
A site-to-site VPN allows offices in multiple fixed locations to establish secure connections with each other over a public network such as the Internet. Site-to-site VPN extends the company’s network, making computer resources from one location available to employees at other locations. An example of a company that needs a site-to-site VPN is a growing corporation with dozens of branch offices around the world.
We offer two types of connections :
- Site interconnection via private network : based on private links outside of the Internet (MPLS), our network can interconnect remote sites. The network provides guaranteed fast speed, reliability and flexibility through a fully dedicated infrastructure that is calibrated to your needs. By isolating your flows, the network also provides confidentiality and eliminates any network intrusion risks.
- Site interconnection via public network : in this case, flows are sent via Internet in encrypted tunnels. Our Firewall solutions’ VPN gateway (IPSec protocol) guarantees security and confidentiality. Encrypted tunnels are set up between your equipment. This interconnection mode extends the private network : using a VPN gateway, you can connect sites that do not have access to private links due to technical or cost-related reasons.
AC&T provides two services for remote access for your mobile workers and teleworkers :
- An SSL client for remote access over private networks
- An IPSec VPN client for remote access over public networks
