VPN Training | Virtual Private Networks Training:

VPN Training – Virtual Private Networks Training Hands-on (2-days, Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live!)

A VPN is a communications environment in which access is controlled to permit peer connections only within a defined community of interest, and is constructed through some form of the partitioning of a common underlying communications medium, where this underlying communications medium provides services to the network on a non-exclusive basis. Virtual private networks have become an essential part of today’s business networks, as they provide a cost-effective means of assuring private internal and external communications over the shared Internet infrastructure. Virtual Private Networks: Technologies and Solutions is a comprehensive, practical guide to VPNs.

VPN Fundamentals includes VPN concepts and architectures, an in-depth examination of advanced features and functions such as tunneling, authentication, access control, VPN gateways, VPN clients, and VPN network and service management. This VPN Training | Virtual Private Networks Training course presents the various technology components, concrete solutions, and best practices you need to deploy and manage a highly successful VPN.
