SSL VPNs: full access with maximum security

The concept of work no longer means a set number of hours sitting at a desk in an office. While going to an office is still part of work, employees are now working in new ways and from many different locations—as a tele-worker, while travelling, from trade shows or conferences, or from other remote locations. This trend is also increasing pressure on companies to provide more flexibility and remote access to their employees.

All types of workers, from mobile executives to physicians to truck drivers, are benefiting from the ability to access and transmit business-critical data—literally from the palms of their hands. However, these productivity benefits aren’t without risks, and there are a number of challenges concerning security.
