Remote Access

Remote access extends the benefit of your network resources to mobile and home workers whilst allowing data to be consolidated at a central location.

Traditionally remote access has been achieved by connecting to a network using either ISDN or analogue telephone lines. The cost of call charges forthis solution can be significant, particularly from international locations, and performance is limited to the connection speed.

A more effective and efficient solution is to connect to the corporate network across the Internet through a VPN. A VPN utilizes sophisticated encryption and encapsulation technology to allow data to be securely transmitted across the Internet. Remote workers and branch offices can establish network connections from any location using their local Internet connection. This solution can be used with standard dial-up access but is particularly effective when high speed broadband Internet connections are used.

The VPN forms an integral feature of many firewall systems. Compupros Unlimited can provide a range of IPSec, PPTP and VPN solutions including theSonicWALL Firewall system.

Compupros Unlimited can use remote access as a means to monitor and support client systems which allows simple issues to be resolved quickly and cost effectively.
