Maximizing VPN Remote Access for Business Continuity
It is critically important to ensure the performance and availability of remote access infrastructure such as Virtual Private Network (VPN) gateways. Poorly performing network infrastructures can result in lost productivity of remote/home users and decreased revenue and profits.
Three critical areas to address when protecting performance and availability of VPNs for remote users:
NETSCOUT’s nGeniusPULSE leverages virtual nPoint technology that can be deployed as a software-based agent on Windows or Linux machines such as laptops, servers, or virtual machines (VM) to provide synthetic transactions from the remote employee’s device / client, back to the VPN gateway at the data center.Answers questions such as: Are delays in accessing the VPN are due to end user’s internet service providers or service, or due to bandwidth constraints at the headquarters’ VPN?
nGeniusONE leverages the InfiniStreamNG appliances deployed at the VPN gateway to measure, track, and trend traffic utilization over the VPN to determine if the traffic volume is saturating the link. Answers questions such as: What is the reason for slow response times to the end users? What is the cause of high retransmission rates due to dropped packets in high traffic periods?
Arbor Edge Defense (AED) is NETSCOUT’s industry leading DDoS protection solution. It is an appliance (or virtual) that resides on premise, in front of firewall or VPN gateway to protect them and application services from volumetric (up to 40Gbps), TCP state exhaustion or application layer attacks.
Assure VPN Performance and Availability for Remote Users
Delays and unavailability are the last things you want your employees around the world having to deal with accessing your business applications. NETSCOUT has solutions to help ensure end user access to corporate resources over the VPN – whether its performance from the end user perspective, network and application performance over the VPN, or a DDoS attack that could block availability of your VPN – NETSCOUT has the right visibility to get to the root of the problem.
