Home office with VPN

Connected securely and reliably with all employees.
Free of concerns and professionally.

How can I offer my employees home office or mobile working work with confidence?

The world of work is in a state of transition: The New Work concept is gaining more and more attention – and thus not only changes the work-life balance, but also requires a rethink with regard to home office and remote work (mobile working). In other words, mobility and flexibility have become an integral part of today's working world.

As an IT decision-maker, you are now faced with the question: How do I enable my employees to work securely from home or flexibly, securely and in compliance with company-wide security policies from anywhere?

Despite the seemingly complex challenge, the solution is quite simple: set up a secure and cost-effective VPN infrastructure in your company. We specialize in VPN solutions for businesses and will be happy to guide you in setting up, managing, and maintaining a professional and quickly implementable home office VPN access, without concerns.

Hardware: What technical equipment do I need for a home office with VPN?

For the home office connection to the headquarters, a secure VPN tunnel is set up for each employee. All that is needed on the company side is a VPN-capable device - usually a router, gateway or firewall. When selecting the device, pay attention to the dimensioning or recommended use of the VPN accesses that can be used simultaneously per device.

Software: Which requirements must be met here?

The LANCOM Advanced VPN Client must be present on the employee devices, and its configuration requires not only little time for the administrator, but also little technical know-how: The integrated "1-click setup wizard" makes the initial configuration as effortless as possible. Thanks to it, VPN accesses for employees can be created and set up in no time at all.

Simply secure site networking with the LANCOM Advanced VPN Client

With the LANCOM Advanced VPN Client for the Windows and macOS operating systems, your employees can access the corporate network via a secure VPN tunnel with just one click. It makes no difference whether they are in the home office, abroad, or in a transportation vehicle. Equipped with a stateful inspection firewall, the software VPN client automatically detects secure and insecure networks for secure communication over the Internet at all times. Further data protection is provided by support for all IPSec protocol extensions, various encryption algorithms and numerous other security features. Seamless roaming also ensures that VPN connections are maintained even when switching media.
