What is a Cloud VPN?
The role of a decentralized workforce is evident in 2021 — it’s now essential. With the rise of remote work, employees have seen some enormous benefits, like working flexible hours and spending more time with their families.
The risks associated with such decentralization have presented challenges like unencrypted networks, unlisted websites, and slow speeds — an almost constant challenge for businesses in recent years.
A Cloud VPN provides an encrypted site-to-site tunnel from an employee’s endpoint to your corporate network, be it a mobile phone, laptop, or any other device. Your resources and data are kept both encrypted and secure.
Control company network access, and protect your resources
A Cloud VPN can be deployed in minutes, provide instant access to your applications, and enable you to manage permissions to critical resources when used with an IP allowlist (whitelist).
Using resources and sharing sensitive data is risky when done over the open internet. A Cloud VPN ensures your activity remains hidden from outside users. When used in tandem with an IP allowlist (whitelist), you have full control over who has access to specific areas of your network.
There is no longer the need to be geographically close to the office, as NordLayer has servers in over 33 locations worldwide — allowing users to access company data securely from anywhere, as long as there is an internet connection.
