Traditional “Over-the-Top”, “Virtual Private Network” (VPN)
Virtual Private Networks are just that, virtually private, over the internet. Requiring many ‘tunnels’ between all sites, and potentially requiring costly hardware if the traffic volume is significant.
Private Wide Area Networks are exactly that, fully private networks that do not cross the public internet. In this model there is no need for costly hardware, or a mess of tunnels that span from every site to every-other site. Only 1, private access brought to each site. In this model internet access can be provided from the head-office where IT security policies can be enforced and controlled (such as acceptable website access, and data-loss prevention).
