A virtual private network (VPN) can provide secure access to remote job sites while giving systems integrators the flexibility to monitor and maintain a building automation system from the convenience of their home or office. However, deciding which VPN is right for you can be confusing. Which VPN service should I use? What are the features, capabilities, and limitations? Can I maintain my own VPN?

Contemporary Controls offers three VPN solutions to meet your remote access needs—RemoteVPN subscription service, and Self-HostedVPN and BridgeVPN solutions. We have several videos that explain the different features, capabilities and limitations of each VPN solution.3

Our RemoteVPN subscription service provides secure communication and the convenience of remote access without having to maintain the VPN server. Hosted on the Internet and maintained by a subscription provider, RemoteVPN incorporates a cloud-based server with clients for workstations and mobile devices and routers installed at job sites. Contemporary Controls also offers Self-HostedVPN and BridgeVPN solutions which allow users to set up and maintain their own secure remote access without subscription fees and without the need for a cloud-based VPN server.

To better understand the three options, check out our video Understanding Remote Access VPN Options (Overview).

For a more detailed understanding of the three options, watch Understanding Remote Access VPN Options (Webinar).
