In the spirit of Halloween, today we turn to the grave matter of network security. While some of the top VPN clients meet the needs of many companies, choosing the most popular VPN client without due diligence can cost a company not only its prized data but the company itself. Such was the case for DigiNotar this year when hackers exploited an SSL VPN security hole — calling into question the safety of SSL VPNs.
To evaluate the top VPN breaches of 2011 and where their WAN security went wrong (including DigiNotar’s case), SearchEnterpriseWAN.com interviewed our brand new VPN expert, Rainer Enders, on how to avoid VPN security breaches. In the interview, we discuss different techniques crackers use to break through VPN security and ways to mitigate those risks.
