The best SSL VPN products for you: A buyer's guide

In this SearchSecurity buyer's guide, learn why it's important to deploy Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) virtual private network (VPN) technology, as well as how to procure and buy the best SSL VPN product for your organization.

Introduction

Secure Sockets Layer  virtual private network products, also known as SSL VPNs, help to protect enterprise communication by encrypting the flow of data between client computers (individual devices such as servers, desktops, laptops and mobile devices) and the network. Today, the technology is most often used as a remote access security solution, whereby a single SSL VPN gateway (server) serves as an entry point by which many SSL VPN clients access the corporate network.

The main point of using SSL VPN products is to prevent unsanctioned parties from snooping on network communications and extricating sensitive information. Another reason is to thwart the manipulation and interception of communications during, for example, a man-in-the-middle attack.

In this buyer's guide, readers will learn how SSL VPN products work, as well the ways these products can secure network connections and communications for organizations. It also lays out what enterprises need to know before making an SSL VPN investment, and presents direct product comparisons and overviews of some of the best SSL VPN products on the market today.
