Efficient and secure working from home? Using a VPN tunnel, it is now possible to work in the home office just like in the company.
Mobile working concepts have never been more in demand. In addition to the home office issue, the geographical location of internationally active companies is also a relevant topic. Companies often have branches in different locations. Due to this fact, a network between the national or even international branches of the company is particularly important to ensure the daily work. Thus, all employees must always be securely connected to the headquarters via a VPN site-to-site connection.
