VPN as a Service (VPNaaS) provides redundant Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) network access that enables secure connections between private networks and public cloud providers, or cloud to cloud connections via VPN gateways that link projects or regions. IPsec is 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: Malta System’s VPN client software and secure network access gateway.
The IP traffic that flows between the two components pass between the Malta System private gateway and the client thereby creating an IPsec connection to establish a secure VPN communications tunnel. The private tunnel or tunnels and the data traveling over any network, public or private, is encrypted, keeping all data private and secure.
Using Malta System’s service, enterprises can now control VPNaaS management across multiple public clouds or private networks, all in one platform.
