What can I do with my VPN?
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows you to securely extend your private network across the Internet. This allows you to:
  • Connect remote employees and branches to your main office
  • Send sensitive documents securely over the Internet
  • Use the Internet to securely extend your network services to partners, branch offices, remote users, etc.
Here's some technical data about our VPN solution:
  • Our VPN protocol is IPSec.
  • We use both ESP (Encapsulated Security Payload) and AH (Authentication Header).
  • The encryption is 3DES ("Triple DES").
  • The key length is 168 bits (56 bits per DES cipher).
