What is a Corporate VPN?

A corporate VPN offers organizations the opportunity to provide their employees access to a secure end-to-end encrypted connection to cloud resources on a company network. A corporate VPN encryption provides a secure network connection to the employee’s devices, no matter where employees are working.

Transform your organization’s remote corporate access with our seamless, secure and highly scalable Corporate VPN. Perimeter 81’s innovative and easy-to-use solution provides businesses the ability to manage and protect their private cloud resources from critical attacks on their network.

Why You Need to replace Your Traditional VPN with a Corporate VPN

The legacy traditional hardware VPN was first introduced over 30 years ago. It initially enabled secure and remote access to the Internet through a point-to-point connection by creating an encrypted ‘tunnel’ through which IP traffic flows. Despite the advancements of VPNs over the years, outdated remote access creates more security risks for enterprises. By organizations adopting VPNs for corporate network access it presented the issue of increasing more vulnerable attacks on the networks due to employee access within the organization network in order to access company resources. Organizations that are adopting consumer VPNs are providing weaker points of encryption with respect to identity access and credential management. Users who are not restricted to specific network resources are making VPNs one of the easiest targets for hackers to attack.

Critical VPN constraints include lack of network segmentation, network visibility, on-premises user security as well as lack of secure network security. VPNs are also not suited for the increasing use of cloud resources because they require computer hardware, constant management and cannot easily adjust to network or server changes. This makes it more problematic to scale for new users and network locations.

In comparison, the Corporate VPN model addresses traditional VPN limitations while providing a more flexible cloud-based platform, increased security, privacy and user-access control granularity and analytics.

IPsec versus MPLS

While there are several types of VPNs, organizations tend to implement either an Internet Protocol security (IPsec) or Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN to connect their remote workers to their organization's data, apps, and other corporate resources.

The terms “IPsec” and “MPLS” represent the way each type of VPN transmits data. The primary differences between IPsec and MPLS is related to the type of networks. IPsec connects sites using public Internet transport, which is made of interconnected networks run by different carriers. MPLS connects sites using a single carrier’s MPLS network. The carrier has management control of the network, including the ability to enforce quality-of-service policies on traffic flows. MPLS VPNs partition each customer’s traffic from the others to keep it private across the infrastructure.

How Does a Corporate VPN Work?

Corporate VPNs enable network security and compliance for organizations that have transitioned to the public cloud or hybrid cloud environments using SSL or Internet Protocol Security (IPsec), the secure network protocol suite that authenticates and encrypts data at the IP Packet Layer. Establishing virtual tunneled connections with IPsec between network resources and an external device and user requires two main components: Perimeter 81’s VPN client software and secure network access gateway.

To create a Corporate VPN tunnel, the IPsec protocol negotiates security associations (SA) with the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) management protocol to create an authenticated and secure communication channel between a user, device and network resources.

IPsec VPN mutual negotiation exchanges keys for end-to-end encryption occurring in two phases. First, users with their devices establish a secure channel that negotiates the IPsec security association (SA). Second, users and devices negotiate the IPsec SA for authenticating traffic that will flow through the tunnel.

The IP traffic that flows between the two components pass between the Perimeter 81 private gateway and the client thereby creating an IPsec tunnel to establish a secure VPN communications tunnel. The private tunnel and the data traveling over any network, public or private, is encrypted, keeping all data private and secure.

Secure Your Corporate Data and Resources

Private Servers and Static IPs
Deploy high-performance, private servers for your company’s needs and secure your employees resource access with devoted IPs.
Manage Team Member Access
Invite team members to your network, organizing multiple user groups and manage team permissions all in one unified management portal.
Monitor Network Activity
Audit resource access, monitor bandwidth consumption and detect network anomalies. Get the full picture with complete network visibility.

Our Secure Network as a Service includes four main components:

1
A unified cloud management platform
where IT personnel can manage their team, network and permissions, and monitor network activity. The interface is extremely easy-to-use and offers built-in Single Sign-On integration, Two-Factor Authentication and mobile support.
2
A multi-tenant cloud
where we create multiple networks, segmented based on different permissions. Each one of the networks can be interconnected, either with a centrally based office and native firewalls running within the office or to cloud services through IP whitelisting.
3
Easy-to-use agents
which can be installed either on mobile or laptop devices, offering employees single-click access to any local network or cloud-based resource and providing them with unified security experience, regardless of where they are.
4
Zero Trust agentless application access
which employs multiple layers of user trust and device trust policy validation to authorize employees before granting them swift access to applications in a session that is fully audited and can be recorded and monitored. This secures the network, employees, and applications using Zero Trust guidelines, and isolates the applications from the network at all times.
