SSL VPNs are indispensable for telework. One model to consider is the Barracuda SSL-VPN 380. The integrated hardware and software solution enables secure, clientless remote access from any web browser on PCs or Macs. It supports up to 50 concurrent users with no per-user fees.
The Barracuda SSL VPN takes advantage of multifactor, layered authentication mechanisms such as RSA SecurID and VASCO Data Security tokens.
