Virtual Private Network(VPN)

Introduction

A Virtual Private Network(VPN) as the name suggests establishes a logical private tunnel on the Internet, to ensure only authorized users can access confidential web resources of the organization, from any network. VPN ensures all the device-web resource communication happens on a secure channel preventing any kind of unauthorized access. VPN also boosts productivity as it ensures employees can work from anywhere, without worrying about lack of access to specific resource/data. With mobile devices extensively becoming a part of corporate productivity, it has become mandatory for IT admins to configure on VPN on mobile devices, which can be easily and efficiently done using MDM.
