Technology Implementations: VPN (Virtual Private Networking)
VPN (Virtual Private Networking) allows you access to your data and files at the office... from virtually anywhere.
VPN technology allows you to actually be on the same network (LAN) as your office.
This technology is best used to gain access to smaller files and documents. For databases and large files, we recommend Remote Web Workplace or Remote Desktop technology. This method allows you to remote control a PC or Server physically located in your office on your wired LAN.
