360Quadrants, the world’s only comparison platform that combines expert analysis with crowdsourced reviews, has released a quadrant on Cloud VPN software to help businesses make quicker and more informed decisions.
Cloud VPN operates on cloud-based network infrastructure and is sometimes referred to as hosted VPN or VPN as a Service (VPNaaS). Cloud VPN provides global VPN access to end users such as subscribers and third-party users over the public internet. A VPN is mostly meant to permit a user, an internet connection, over a server, run by an enterprise. As most of the data or information on the server is encrypted for privacy, a cloud VPN software can provide secure access over the internet for use of a private network through a virtual environment.
The cloud VPN market has been segmented into component (software, services), connectivity type (site-to-site, remote access), organization size (SMEs, large enterprises), end user (service providers, verticals), and region.
Cisco Virtual Managed Services has been identified as a visionary leader in the cloud VPN space given its extensive product features, high product quality, reliability, suitable channel strategy, and wide geographical footprint. 360Quadrants also lists competitors of Cisco Virtual Managed Services in the cloud VPN space.
