VPNs have helped the organizations to expand their reach in the last years and will help to enable innovation in the coming years.

FREMONT, CA: The use of VPN services has created a bottleneck for enterprises as it reduces the network speed and slows down data-related operations. But due to the emergence of layer two tunneling protocols (L2TP) and virtual private LAN service (VPLS), the issue of network speed was addressed, and it is possible now to run latency-sensitive business applications on the VPN.

Another key benefit is that a VPN builds a standard logical network over the Internet that can access from any country. The Internet is easily accessible in any country, thus enabling secure connectivity while enterprise users travel across many countries. Such access is critical because some states have blocked several portals in their public internet access. Also, some countries have formed regulations for data exchange with the rest of the countries in the world. VPNs can be useful in that case to bypass these kinds of rulesets.

Network authorities focus on managing and defining the policies to all the connected equipment from one pane of glass in an intelligent and automated way.

At present, the manual intervention of the users to enable VPN on their devices. VPN is known for making a change to allow automation and intelligence for architecture and connected devices in the coming years.

Security
