This paper examines the business benefits of virtual private networks and compares them to expense of dedicated circuits. It describes the technical application and its solutions for connectivity. The paper states that the purpose of the virtual private network is also to create "trust relationships" through the use of a low cost public network without sacrificing the security of the organization
From the Paper:"The Internet application that I would encourage the organization to implement would be a virtual private network. This will provide the organization with the opportunity to save huge amounts of money because the application uses inexpensive public networks to create a private network. VPN's allow an organization to make use of the low cost of public networks as an alternative to purchasing costly dedicated circuits. Another opportunity that this application will provide is a secure way for remote offices and headquarters to be connected and to share information. In addition this application is very user accessible and allows employees access to the network from their homes' or other remote sites."
