Cloud VPN services can take the bite out of SSL VPN gateway expenses

Posted on : 16-11-2011 | By : admin | In : VPN VPS, VPS



Even though marketing machines would have you believe otherwise, networking professionals are only starting to toy with the idea of cloud computing. Entrusting the crux of wide area networks (WANs) — secure sockets layer virtual private network (SSL VPN) gateways — to the cloud is a big leap for network engineers, but cloud VPN services are popping up and may suit enterprises that can’t afford or can’t properly maintain thousands of dollars’ worth of global remote access infrastructure.

Cloud VPN services fit best in enterprises “where you have a remote user population that will fluctuate between regions of the world, especially where their access network is not unified — say, it’s not being provided by a single ISP,” said Michael Suby, director of Stratecast, a division of Frost & Sullivan. “When you don’t have control of the Internet provider, then you … have some limitations, in terms of what you can guarantee [as far as] performance characteristics.”
