VPN (Virtual Private Network)
Technical Definition – A point-to-point or “tunnel” connection through various public networks that enables a secure connection to resources within a private network.
Layman’s Definition – A secure network connection that allows remote users or regional offices to access a company’s private, internal network.
How we use it – As developers of custom software, alligatortek often has to use a VPN connection in managing and maintaining applications that it has developed for its clients. This is because these applications will be running within the client’s private network.
