SSL VPN technology has become common practice for remote access. Employees on the road, home workers, teleworkers, contractors, customers and suppliers all benefit from its advantages.
As traffic between the web browser and the SSL VPN device is encrypted with the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, it offers secure access from any public PC by working in a virtualized environment leaving no cached files or temporary files behind.
Other benefits entail on-demand security; malware scans, device and software version checks, user geolocation checks, especially for user owned workstations and smartphones.
Because an SSL VPN doesn’t require any installation of specialized client software on the end user’s computer, it not only guarantees access anywhere, anytime and anyhow but also with great ease of use.
