Communications services, including VPN, are expected to grow exponentially in the years to come. Enterprises should take steps to make sure the overhead and support costs of VPNs don't do likewise. Here's how to keep VPN cost under control:

  • Balance user needs carefully against security and risk management requirements.
  • Understand that minimal intrusiveness provides the best user experiences overall.
  • Know that cloud-based or hosted or outsourced VPN services offer the best cost-to-features and security ratio; appliances or servers offer the greatest control.
  • Integrate secure VPNs into your company's overall security policy and maintenance efforts.
