GLOSSARY

A virtual private network (VPN)

A virtual private network (VPN) is a connection established over an existing network, typically the public Internet, that is secured through authentication and encryption methods. VPNs provide a way for authorized remote users to gain access to files, databases, and other network applications in a secure manner.

Due to the inherent security risks of the Internet, companies providing remote access and telecommuting choices must protect their private data through a VPN. F5 Network's FirePass® SSL VPN is an SSL VPN that provides broad application support, scalability, easy installation and use, and the highest standard of integrated end-point security.
