What is Cloud VPN?

Frequently asked questions

As they perform the same function, businesses will select the type of VPN connection that best suits their individual needs.

NordLayer Cloud VPN offers 3 types of tunneling (encryption) protocols:

  • IPSec/IKEv2 — A dependable, stable option – especially when moving between different networks.
  • OpenVPN (UDP) — A good combination of speed and security, but may not work on all networks.
  • OpenVPN (TCP) — A secure and reliable protocol — although slower than UDP, TCP works on the vast majority of networks.
  • NordLynx — A wireguard VPN protocol — lightweight, faster, more secure than OpenVPN.
