Many businesses may be exploring ways to provide remote connectivity to employees, partners, or contractors, while others are looking to upgrade or augment an existing solution. In most cases, deploying an SSL VPN will reduce operational and administrative burden, provide highly granular user access, and offer the highest level of security available in a remote connectivity solution. An SSL VPN solution provides these benefits, and at the same time often represents the lowest TCO of other available options. This research note focuses on the following aspects of SSL VPN solutions:
- Defining enterprise and user requirements.
- Operational and security benefits.
- TCO and ROI considerations.
Small enterprises seeking the most efficient, secure, and easy-to-manage remote access solution for employees, partners, and contractors should evaluate SSL VPN solutions.
