Virtual Private Network

Over the last few months, industries of every size and shape have had to adapt to the ever-changing circumstances of working remotely. From setting up limited access profiles for employees who have never worked from home, to staff who regularly work from anywhere on a continual basis, each and every circumstance calls for its own protocol for every type of business and the specific nuances of each system’s specifications.

Setting up a VPN – Virtual Private Network – can be the answer you’ve been searching for, as we move through understanding how the future of work might change. A VPN allows your staff access to the network as if they were sitting at their desk in the office. This is a protected, private connection that creates a sort of tunnel to the resources inside your company’s server. This allows for efficiencies and adaptability for all staff who need access to their daily work routine and workflow of data.

You may be used to your sales team working remotely, but how will you create the opportunity for other departments and team members to work remotely in a secure environment? You can count on your VPN being as secure as if you were on premises and VPN configuration is a part of our daily routine at Computer St. Louis – our valued client base depends on it.  Our main objective in servicing your IT needs, is to create long-lasting relationships that meet the ever-changing demands of the IT industry.
