Networks - VPN/Remote AccessDo you or others in your company need access to your computers or network while not in your office? Whether you are at home, in the field, away on business, or on vacation, having access to your important company data can be vital to meeting your business needs. More and more people are finding this to be not just a convenience, but a necessity for business. Madison Computer Works can make this a reality for your business with a VPN or remote access solution.
Madison Computer Works sets up VPN connections to office networks that enable employees easy access to office information from in the field or at home. A properly set up VPN (virtual private network) is one way to ensure a seamless, secure connection from a remote site to your company network. A VPN is like having a secure network connection across the Internet right into your office. Network drives, printers and email can all be used over a VPN. Security can be set tightly or loosely depending on your needs. VPN services are used by both large and small companies alike. Generally, we set up a VPN by configuring a hardware VPN router on the network side and a software VPN client on the remote computer side. We will set up your VPN solution and train you on it's use so you can gain the benefits of your office network from the comfort of your home or hotel room.
Remote access differs from a VPN in several ways. Remote access gives you complete control of a computer that is in your office. Products such as pcAnywhere or VNC are run on both your office and remote computer, giving you control of that computer as if you were sitting right in front of it, even though you may be miles away. The VPN and remote access solutions each have their own advantages. Having an MCW professional explain the pros and cons of each option will ensure that you get set up with the proper, affordable solution that best meets your remote computing needs.
