Colleagues learning about VPN Gateway solution


What is a VPN gateway

A gateway controls whether data may enter or leave the network. Technically speaking, gateways connect several networks or applications. They can transform data, communications, or information from different protocols or formats.

A VPN gateway transmits encrypted data between a virtual network and an on-premises site across public Internet. Additionally, you may transfer encrypted traffic using VPN Gateway across many locations, including private networks, clouds, and branch office data centers. You may establish many connections to a single VPN gateway. All VPN tunnels that you establish to the same VPN gateway share the gateway's available bandwidth.
