Overcoming the challenges of remote VPN accessibility

  • Mobile communications must be as secure and flexible as wired.

  • A separate, secure tunnel must be created for each mobile device.

  • It’s important to know the key challenges to securing remote workers.

Wireless access to enterprise information is paramount to staying competitive today, yet the more mobile your business, the more exposed you are to cyber threats, crashed networks, lost devices, and more. While VPNs address such risks in the office, wireless access to a supported VPN requires that a separate, secure tunnel be created for each specific mobile device (smart phone, tablet or laptop), and remote access enabled from any location.


Solutions to this challenge and others are covered in Frost & Sullivan’s white paper, “Optimizing your employees’ mobile communications.” Topics and issues to consider include:

  • How to ensure that remote workers are secured and highly productive across all their devices – seamlessly, without having to log off and on to various VPN connections (which can be frustrating and time-wasting).
  • What security considerations you should think about as you deploy this technology.
  • A mechanism for allowing secure third-party access—for example, by business partners or by employee-owned devices—is becoming a critical requirement for a growing number of businesses. Cloud-based SSL termination would make this possible.
