VPN is an acronym for Virtual Private Network.
A VPN creates a virtual tunnel through the internet providing a private and encrypted path from your device to a remote destination. Once the connection is established, you will be securely connected to the remote network keeping transmitted passwords and other sensitive information private and secure.
While some TVCC resources like Canvas and Email are publically accessible on the internet, other resources are extremely sensitive and require additional security to access.
TVCC provides access to the VPN Service through the use of a small software app. This VPN app is required to securely access many information resources like shared network drives, Remote Desktop Sessions, and ERP systems.
This technology can be used while working remotely from home, in hotel rooms, or in any off-campus location.
