:networks > virtual private networks (VPN)

A virtual private network (VPN) is a way to use a public telecommunication infrastructure, such as the Internet, to provide remote offices or individual users with secure access to their organization's network. A virtual private network negates the need to have owned or leased lines and therefore can provide the organization with the same capabilities, but at a much lower cost.

We provide a complete VPN solution to enable home workers to connect to the office network, or indeed allow several different office sites to link together.

Home-office VPN Connections
The following diagram demonstrates how a TCW home-office VPN is comprised. A firewall protects your internal network from attack while managing all secure VPN tunnels to the clients. Secure access is therefore created to all files, folders, and applications on your internal network.

Inter-site VPN Connections
The following diagram demonstrates how a TCW inter-site VPN is comprised. As with the home-office VPN, a firewall protects the internal network, but this time at each site. The secure VPN tunnel between the firewall routers maintains its connectivity, and allows traffic to flow freely between sites as if directly connected using a leased line.
