SSL VPN

An SSL VPN uses Secure Sockets Layer protocol, an authentication and encryption technology built into every web browser, to create a secure and encrypted connection over a less secure network, like the Internet.

Because an SSL VPN uses standard web browsers and technologies, it gives users  secure remote access to enterprise applications without requiring the installation and maintenance of separate client software on each user’s computer.

Access Policy Manager supports connectivity to any TCP/IP-based application and enforces end-point security.
