What is site-to-site VPN?

Is point-to-point VPN the same as site-to-site?

If so, then why is point-to-site a more secure solution? For those who do not know point-to-site VPN works like this: VPN server - You (client) connect to a VPN server of your choice. The client needs to be connected to the server because you need it to establish an encrypted connection to the VPN network. The server can be a separate computer or even some type of software running on another computer. All traffic from and to your client through the server is secure encrypted.

If the server fails your client still can access your network because he's connected to the same internet connection as the server. That is why point-to-site VPN is not as secure as SSTP.

You may argue about the fact that the SSTP VPN is not as safe as a point-to-site VPN because the SSTP will only encrypt the traffic from client to server, but not from server to client. In short, all the traffic is encrypted between you and the Internet. However, SSTP VPN is the most common solution for most enterprises.

Also, when you use VPN-client connections to your company network at home, there will not be the difference if you are using Point-to-Point VPN or Site-to-Site. For example, your personal laptop or tablet might connect to your home Wi-Fi and connect to your router that was also provided by your ISP. In this case, your ISP will know the exact location of where you have accessed your home router. So, in this case, VPN connections aren't useful. The best thing you can do is to change your router's configuration, and make your router provide you with anonymous IP address for each device connected to it. Even if you can use the SSTP VPN connection, it won't improve the security level at all. I'd say Point-to-Point VPN will be more secure than SSTP VPN.

What is site-to-site VPN?

Site-to-site VPN is the most powerful product in our suite of SecureCloud Network Solutions.

A site-to-site VPN creates a private virtual private network across multiple offices or branches within a large organization. This private network is completely separate from other networks and computers on your company's network.

This feature is available as part of our SecureCloud Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises solutions. It does require Windows Server 2024 R2 (and above) to be installed on your physical server. It also requires the use of our SecureEdge software (more on this below). Site-to-site VPN enables secure remote access to network resources, as well as remote file transfers.

Remote Access and Remote File Transfer. Remote access is one of the most frequently used features of our solutions. Site-to-site VPN can be used for remote access and remote file transfer.

Remote access provides remote users with secure network connectivity using a VPN connection. The VPN connection securely transmits your corporate network traffic through an encrypted tunnel, while protecting it from eavesdropping. Your remote users will be able to access corporate resources like local files, remote files, emails, network resources and printers.

Remote file transfers provides remote users with secure network access to shared files, either through individual file shares or through folders shared by way of a Samba file share on a local network. SecureEdge is a product in our suite of SecureCloud Network Solutions. Our SecureEdge product consists of a VPN client, as well as configuration tool and management tools. This is the software that makes the site-to-site VPN connection possible, and the software that secures your VPN connection once it is established.

Site-to-site VPN connections are extremely fast and have noticeable delay. If you need to securely transmit sensitive information (eg, company secrets, bank accounts, etc.) you may want to consider using SecureEdge as a VPN client. This provides a very secure connection to a remote server, as well as a number of other benefits, such as:

Security (SSL/TLS)- As a VPN client, SecureEdge offers secure access to VPN connections. SecureEdge will encrypt your data to and from the VPN connection using advanced encryption standards such as Triple DES, AES 256, Camellia, RC4, RSA and RSA 2024.

What is a point-to-point VPN known as?

A VPN is a virtual private network that helps a user communicate with different servers located in the same area or different parts of the world.

A point-to-point VPN uses a public network such as the Internet. In order for data to flow correctly, several factors must be established. For example, a user must install a VPN on a client computer and connect it to a point-to-point VPN server located in another area.

How do I use point-to-point VPN? You can use point-to-point VPN to protect your online data against snoopers, hackers, and anyone trying to break into your computer. There are several types of encryption available for you to choose from. If you would like to encrypt your connection in an asymmetric mode, you must create your own key. For symmetric encryption, most people can use any key length of 1024 bits.

What are the pros and cons of using point-to-point VPN? Point-to-point VPN is a very reliable technology that can be used by both individual and business users. There are two main benefits of using a point-to-point VPN. The first benefit is that you will be able to browse the internet privately. There is no need to worry about a website owner or hacker being able to see what sites you have visited. Using point-to-point VPN, the IP address of the server is hidden. As a result, no website owners or hackers can identify your real IP address.

The second benefit is that you will not have to pay for extra charges. Most point-to-point VPN services use free open source encryption. Since encryption is a vital aspect of a VPN service, it is always free. With point-to-point VPN, you can save money on paid services, as well as avoid identity theft and fraud.

What are the disadvantages of using point-to-point VPN? The main disadvantage of using point-to-point VPN is the amount of traffic that is generated. Point-to-point VPN uses the public Internet to help users establish a virtual network connection. As a result, there is a lot of network traffic that is sent out in order for data to be encrypted correctly.
