A Secure Sockets Layer virtual private network (SSL VPN) is a form of VPN that can be used with a standard Web browser. Deep Edge SSL VPN solution requires the installation of client software, and is ideal for applications including web-based email, business and government directories, file sharing, remote backup, remote system management, and consumer-level electronic commerce.
When users have complete administrative rights over their computers and use a variety of applications, tunnel mode allows remote clients to access the local internal network as if they were connected to the network directly.
This section provides information about the features of SSL VPN available for configuration in the web-based manager. Only Deep Edges that run in NAT/Route mode support the SSL VPN feature.
