Learning how to set up VPNs correctly in an organization will avoid complications later on. Here are some VPN issues and related technical problems that IT must understand:

  • VPN client software must work on all user devices, such as PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones; this will help your company avoid a VPN security breach.
  • VPN protocols must work end-to-end through firewalls, routers and switches.
  • IT must pick VPN devices that are compatible and interoperable with concentrators, appliances and servers.
