VPN product and diagram

The Uplevel system supports extensive VPN connectivity to fit almost every scenario.

One-Click VPN Setup

Simple, Secure, Robust VPN Connections

The Uplevel system supports both site-to-site (S2S) and remote access (laptop) VPN connections. Our VPN is versatile, cloud-mediated for maximum flexibility, and AES-encrypted for high security. Businesses needing to connect their offices or employees no longer need to find it expensive or difficult. Uplevel's unique VPN technology even eliminates the need for purchasing static IPs from ISPs.

All Uplevel setups come with one-click S2S VPNs that work through ISP firewalls (i.e., no 'hole-punching' required).A single click on the portal connects all of the offices of a customer together; the system automatically sets up SSL/TLS tunnels, configures firewall rules, sets up routing, and even manages DNS to let remote sites see each other's resources. The cloud monitors and automatically reconfigures the S2S VPN to accommodate network changes (WAN failovers, ISP link changes, etc.).The S2S VPN is "VLAN-aware" and maintains the same security posture over the VPN as at the physical offices.

Remote work is supported by the system with the same ease-of-use. No need to configure VPN services or manage DHCP pools; instead, just set up user accounts and employees are ready to go immediately. Like the S2S VPN, remote-access VPNs are also "VLAN-aware" and preserve the same access rules over the VPN as at the office. MFA VPN access is supported, together with a variety of different native and installable clients (L2TP, SSTP, SSL, etc.)

For customers needing connections to third-party firewalls or cloud services, our third-party VPN functions enable rapid and easy-to-use connections. Simply copy the information from the third-party firewall or cloud service into the configuration page, and the gateways will automatically bring up VPN tunnels and keep them connected.

Uplevel’s Remote Access VPN Solutions offer powerful encryption to protect your business from hackers who might steal your sensitive data when you use WiFi networks. In addition, routing, switching, firewalling, and VLANs are all configured to ensure security with maximum convenience.

Can I get hacked while using a Virtual Private Network?

Although a VPN, or Virtual Private Network, can solve many security difficulties, you can still be hacked while using it because it cannot protect you if you install malware or share your username and password with anyone. 

A VPN can protect your device against hacking, but it does not render you immune to all types of attacks. However, it will assist you by offering an additional layer of protection as well as a number of other benefits. It can assist you in a variety of ways, including improving your internet experience, gaining access to prohibited websites, finding better discounts, and much more.

How useful are virtual private networking services for Remote Workers?

Virtual Private Networking Services are of great use for Remote Workers because they give end users the ability to access corporate network resources from a remote location.

It helps employees to connect when they are travelling or telecommuting to the company network and access resources such as internal applications, intranet, mail services and file sharing. 

Is VPN a firewall?

No, a VPN is not a firewall. A firewall secures the entry point to a network flow whereas a VPN secures the network flow between two points. A firewall is configured with a set of rules to filter traffic, whereas a VPN creates an encrypted tunnel between two networks.
