Six Critical Things to Know Before Purchasing or Implementing Your VPN

By Dan Scofield ·
When it comes to providing users with a secure remote access solution, have you considered that a "one-size-fits-all" approach to virtual private networking (VPN) may not meet your company's unique needs?

1. One size does not fit all.
2. you must support home computers
3. remote access is more than email
4. don?t count on your users for security
5. the appliance cost is just the beginning
6. someone will have to provide service

Steve Dispensa, CIO of Positive Networks, and Bob Artner, VP of TechRepublic hosted a live webcast on August 16, 2005 to address these issues. The attendance at the event was tremendous and several listeners posted questions about VPN security, how to serve remote offices and outsourcing.

If you want to see the archived version of the webcast to learn more about VPN challenges and solutions you can go see it now.
