Excuse my ignornace, but in management speak, how does the VPN process actually work?
Say users A sat at home wants to connect to corporate network A, what does he have on his machine, and how does he "connect". I have some experience with citriix whereby we need the citrix client installed on home machines, and then we just visit a specific web page authenticate via domain credentials, and it logs us in.
Is that the same with VPN? client software, visiit a website, authenticate with domain creds, then you are in? Or is it more complex.
Please keep answers in management speak where poss?
And what security issues/concerns are there with VPN ?
