Capable of traversing NAT, the VPN Service uses SSL/TLS to manage key exchange, using an AES-256 based encryption. It can be used to provide Peer-to-Peer, or site to site secure communications, although traditionally it is used as a Hub and Spoke arrangement to provide a secure channel for clients.

Its resilient protocol makes it ideal for use over poor networks, providing a layer of connectivity that can hide network failures ( eg from Mobile Networks or Wifi’s ). This can provide the user with a more stable and consistent application experience while roaming between cells or networks.

This service includes an initial standard set-up configuration and support to help get your initial requirement up and running.

These services are suitable for Private, Community or Public Cloud hosting, in Internet, Tier1 or higher environments.
