Cloud VPN service
Maintain control of and access to corporate assets with a zero-trust managed cloud VPN service
With enterprises extending their networks to accommodate global offices, cloud applications, suppliers, partners, contractors and remote employees, securely accessing and transferring privileged information is more important than ever. Traditional, on-premises VPN deployments require full-time expertise and are costly to implement and maintain with ongoing technology upgrades. Cloud-based, managed VPN solutions offer organizations a secure, cost-effective alternative.
OpenText™ PositivePro is a cloud VPN managed service that provides secure connectivity and access to corporate network resources via site-to-site VPNs.
What is a cloud VPN service?
A cloud VPN service is a highly secure means to maintain control of and access to corporate assets in a hosted and managed environment. It combines the highest levels of security with ease-of-use and cost-efficiency. Traditional, remote access VPNs connect remote workers to the corporate office but require a VPN client be attached to every machine, and users must have the technical knowledge to access them. In some cases, the VPN server is outside the firewall, making the system vulnerable to cyberattack.
A site-to-site VPN resides on a server within the corporate firewall and removes the need for a VPN client on every server and device. The VPN solution creates a managed tunnel to the public cloud, providing highly secure end-point connectivity for authorized users via the browser-based device of their choice.
