The Office Virtual Private Network (VPN) Service provides a secure, cost-effective way to connect small and branch offices to your agency’s main network through a local Internet Service Provider (ISP), such as CenturyLink or Comcast. Your agency’s primary network location must be on the State Government Network (SGN) or the Intergovernmental Network (IGN).
Features and Benefits:
Small Branch Office supports a small, remote office of 2-10 employees. This allows up to 13 network devices (such as PCs, servers or printers) to connect. Complete the Branch Office VPN Request Form and email it to the WaTech Support Center to schedule a consultation and plan a solution that best matches your needs.
Large Branch Office supports 10-250 employees. Complete the Branch Office VPN Request Form and email it to WaTech Support Center to schedule a consultation and plan a solution that best matches your needs.
Site-to-Site allows a server, host, or device to communicate with another server, host, or device over a secured channel. This service is designed to support the automated, system, or batch transfer of data between two devices. (For example: an agency might collect data electronically in the field and transmit it back to a data center for compilation.)
