VPNs Slow Down the Computer or Device
Early versions of VPN software gained the reputation for slowing down computer performance, however faster protocols have been developed as well as new methods to compress data.
VPNs are Limited in Supported User Activities
While early VPNs were limited, today’s high-quality VPNs offer flexibility in authentication methods, application access and additional resources.
VPNs Only Allow Access to the Organization’s Data
Although many users only consider VPNs useful to access an organization’s network to upload and download data, VPNs actually provide a variety of different services that allow users to gain access to critical information, not just documents.
VPNs Are No Different Than Other Portals
VPNs often have the misconception that “all portals are alike.” However, VPNs are able to provide highly personalized portal views that are a function of individual access rights.
Cloud-Computing Is Making VPN Technology Obsolete
While there is no doubt that cloud-computing has given employees a new level of freedom to store and retrieve content, it has not eclipsed VPNs as a valuable technology. In fact, cloud computing has enlivened the need for a robust VPN.
In addition to dispelling a total of twelve remote access myths in detail, the e-paper also explores the benefits of remote access technologies and offers useful tips about the use of VPN solutions.
