What is an SSL VPN?

An SSL VPN, or secure sockets layer virtual private network, is a technology used to provide secure, remote VPN access. Put simply, it allows remote users to access private files, applications, and programs without installing specialized software to do so. In an SSL VPN, multiple types of devices can access the private network and the data contained inside. All of the traffic into and out of the network is encrypted with SSL protocols. This technology is far easier to use than prior remote VPN options.
