IPSec VPN

Keeping everyone safely in the loop.

Overview

These days, it’s vital that applications and data can be shared between offices and remote users; this kind of sharing is essential to increasing productivity and providing more flexible working arrangements for your people. In addition, if you want to maintain that ‘special’ relationship with your suppliers, business partners (and whoever else), you need remote access. It’s as simple as that.

For some, it’s a pretty daunting and mind boggling task; what happens if it all goes wrong? That’s where our Managed VPN solution comes in, because it can easily support any number of remote users to make sure everything (and everyone) stays hunky dory - and in touch.

Put simply, our IP Security VPN (IPSec VPN) provides a secure, private tunnel between devices; the ideal way to extend your private network across the internet to a remote site or branch office.

Key features

  • You won’t find a more experienced team of dedicated security specialists. They’re passionate about keeping you secure.
  • VPN and user authentication, using Internet Key Exchange (IKE), Manual Key Exchange and X.509 digital certificates, RADIUS and SecurID™ token based authentication. Trust us, it’s safe.
  • Our fully managed solution includes monitoring, policy control/consultancy, software and patch upgrades as well as hardware maintenance. The whole caboodle, as they say.

How it Works

Hers's how it works

IPSec - or network layer - VPN uses a shared network to transport sensitive multi-protocol traffic using a combination of encryption and tunnelling functions. This means that your people can enjoy the same full, continuous access to your business network as if they were physically connected to it. Just the ticket for sharing resources between offices.

We can easily tailor our IPSec VPN to meet your specific remote access needs, using Juniper Networks integrated security devices that are both scalable and reliable. Naturally, we fully manage our service to ensure it can be deployed quickly and efficiently. It’s simple to use and is underpinned by a reassuring SLA, freeing up valuable resources, so you can focus on your business.

Essentially, IPSec VPN is a complete ‘ready-to-go’ management solution that safely provides roaming users with total connectivity to the business network. What’s more, it works with our Cable Modem, DSL, Leased Line and Ethernet connectivity solutions. This provides the flexibility required to meet the lower bandwidth, lower cost requirement of, say, a home worker or small office as well as the high bandwidth, high availability demands of big business.
