Realtime VPN Monitoring
VPNs (virtual private networks) build an encrypted tunnel among a user’s computer and a remote network’s firewall. As work-from-home grows the latest pattern for many organizations while the COVID-19 pandemic, IT teams are depending massively on VPNs to securely connect remote workers back to the corporate network.
Most companies didn’t prepare for their whole workforce requiring VPN access all at once, however. The growing demand has created possible network bottlenecks that IT teams need to realtime monitor and handle in order to keep workers connected and productive.
With the data now accessible in Auvik, IT teams can do just that. Without any manual setup, IT teams can monitor SSL VPN sessions over various vendors and various sites. This reduces hours used manually accumulating the data one device at a time. Instead, Auvik alerts network managers when sessions reach defined thresholds so they can proactively address capacity problems before users are affected.
Alex Hoff, Chief Product Officer at Auvik said While COVID-19, there’s been a huge wave in the number of remote workers throughout the world and the number of IT teams searching for methods to better support them. With this new VPN monitoring ability, IT teams can better reduce business interruption by assuring remote workers to stay connected to the business-critical information they require.
