A VLAN works much the same way as a local area network (LAN) but enables remote devices to establish a secure internet connection to business servers, or group with other devices, based on function rather than a physical site. Tools like smart remote access enable and secure these connections without the hassle of a traditional LAN like higher online traffic congestion or latency
RDP is a secure method of assuming the operation of one device from another—often used by IT admins. A client device connects to a host device from another site, allowing users to conduct operations on the host device remotely over the internet.
You can use several tools for file sharing with smart remote access including the majority of external file transfer protocol (FTP) tools and those provided as standard for Windows and Mac OS.
