Failed connections that are supposed to work are another stumbling block that can arise with SSL VPN security. One of the most effective ways to defend against this is through fault-tolerant authenticated sessions that allow two appliances to form a mirrored access point pair. If one access point happens to fail, another node will immediately take care of corporate application access, providing high availability. Even when the initial access point is functioning up to par, the additional access point can be placed in a different geographical location. This provides an automatic safeguard and a tool that meets disaster recovery requirements.

As work forces become more mobile and geographically dispersed, SSL VPN is becoming an integral means to achieve secure access to corporate resources wherever you are, whenever you want. In addition to offering you and other trusted company associates easy access to a network, SSL VPN works from a standard Web browser and does not require the end user to install specialized software. This type of setup is especially useful for companies with several mobile users who need to connect from various locations. As a result, security is essential when dealing with SSL VPN. This slideshow features 10 tips Stonesoft has identified to help implement SSL VPN securely.
