Remote access to corporate network data from any location at any time is a necessity for mobile or home workers in many businesses. However, setting up these clients on individual PCs often becomes a huge administrative burden. Sophos VPN clients offer secure and flexible remote access for any type of network environment and operating system with minimal administrative effort.
