SSL VPN Server for Windows

In every network there will come a time when users will want to access their information from home. It’s up to you, the IT professional, to determine how to provide this access.

A browser based VPN over HTTPS can prove to be a great alternative to standard VPN software. Here are some of the advantages.
- Clientless. Can work from any computer with an Internet connection.
- Easy to setup. Works on Windows and Linux.
- Simple to train end users.
- Users only see what has been published to them.
- Active Directory Integration.
