Beyond VPNs

February 3, 2024

Virtual private networks (VPNs) have become an essential tool for internet users to secure their online activities and protect their privacy. However, despite the benefits, VPNs also have some pain points and limitations that can affect their effectiveness and usability. Some of these issues include slow internet speeds, limited server locations, compatibility problems, and potential security risks. As VPNs become increasingly popular, it is important for users to be aware of these pain points and limitations to make informed decisions about their online security and privacy.

While traditional VPNs expose your internal network to anyone who connects, Remote.It provides Zero Trust protection by controlling who has access to individual services and resources.

Protection for networked subnets is not enough

Protecting your network alone is not enough. Traditional VPNs provide encrypted tunnels to a remote subnet - meaning anyone who connects through your VPN can access the entire networks.

Remote.It takes you beyond VPNs

Ensure zero trust access by limiting user access to what they really need. Unlike VPNs, Remote.It grants user access to specific services inside your network at the port level.

Hide your network from attacks

VPNs expose open ports at your network's internet perimeter. Remote.It closes your internet facing ports, making your network invisible to hackers and protecting you against malicious attacks.

Implement security best practices

VPNs are popular, but they do not comply with today's recognized best practices for private network and cloud security. Remote.It satisfies the principle of least privilege, offers identity-based access, and reduces attack surfaces by eliminating open ports.

Eliminate expensive VPNs. Remote.IT helps you scale without breaking the bank

VPNs can be costly to setup and hard to deploy - they are also difficult to manage and resource intensive to keep secure. By contrast, Remote.It is easy to use and cost-effecitve to scale - amd it offers better security.
