GLOSSARY

SSL VPN

An SSL VPN uses Secure Sockets Layer, an authentication and encryption technology built into every Web browser, to create a secure virtual private network connection over the public Internet.

Because an SSL VPN uses standard Web browsers and technologies, it enables secure remote access to enterprise applications without requiring the installation and maintenance of separate client software on each remote computer.

The F5 FirePass® SSL VPN supports connectivity to any TCP/IP-based application, offers straightforward setup and management, and enforces end-point security.
