Why should you choose TONEX for your VPN Training?

VPN Training by Tonex has been a high-quality  program since 1999.

Virtual private networks extend private networks by moving information across a public domain, such as the internet. With the developing nature of these networks, VPN training courses are beneficial to employees in the VPN industry. This field has changed dramatically since it was first created, as early data networks relied on VPN connectivity through dial-up modems and leased line connections.

Today’s virtual private networks can be either remote access or site to site. With remote access, the computer user is connected to a network, and in site-to-site, two networks are connected together. In order to keep on top of these advancements in technology, virtual private network training programs are available.
