Three requirements for a VPN solution are: authentication, integrity and confidentiality

Like many organisations, American Century Casualty Co (ACCC), an insurance company based in Houston, US, used to insist that its network access be restricted to users on the corporate LAN (local area network), as narrates Charlie Rubin in a recent article in Communications News ( http://www.comnews.com/).

ACCC had to think of a policy change ‘during the year-end holiday break in 2006, when some of the state-wide claims managers asked if they could do some work from home’. However, Stephen Gentilozzi, the company’s IT manager, had no real solution for the managers at the time.
