Security > Firewall and virtual private network (VPN)
A firewall is a system designed to protect a computer network from unauthorized access, especially via the Internet. A virtual private network (VPN) is a private data network that runs on a shared or public network platform, like the Internet.
What we do
Openface can install a firewall, which is a checkpoint between two networks through which all Internet traffic must pass. Your employees are able to access the Internet but the firewall prevents hackers from accessing your private, internal network.
We can also create a virtual private network to connect two or more private networks in different locations.
Help me decide
There is no excuse for leaving your computer network open to the outside world. A firewall is like a virtual gate between your network and the Internet. The only question is whether you will buy and install a firewall yourself or whether you will ask our experts to help.
A virtual private network is recommended for companies with more than one location and whose employees rely on the same constantly updated data in one central data storage location.
Openface virtual private networks use special cryptography-enabled routers and other security mechanisms to ensure that data cannot be intercepted as it travels between the networks over the Internet. A virtual private network provides the same capabilities as privately-owned or leased communication lines to which you have exclusive access (such as a Wide Area Network, or WAN). However, the cost of a virtual private network is much lower because it uses a shared public infrastructure rather than exclusive line access.
