A Virtual Private Network (VPN) as the name suggests is used to establish secure connections between devices and networks by using a logical private tunnel. All the device-web resource communication happens on this secure channel. This ensures that all the corporate data is encrypted and secured from unauthenticated access. By using VPN, productivity is boosted since access to corporate resources can be granted to the employees working from anywhere without having to compromise on data security.
VPN device management is the process of setting up and maintaining secure connections to a Virtual Private Network on devices like smartphones and tablets. This ensures that employees can access company resources safely from anywhere. Mobile Device Management (MDM) makes this easier by helping IT administrators configure and manage these VPN connections on mobile devices efficiently.
Here are the advantages of having a VPN connection that emphasize the need for admins to configure VPNs on work devices using MDM:
