Virtual Private Network VPN

Description of Service

The VPN, or Virtual Private Network, service allows a user to establish a secure connection to the APU campus network from their laptop or other computer without being physically located on campus. Using VPN client software and a reliable internet connection, a user can work away from campus, as if they were connected to the network on campus. This secure connection allows access to APU network resources such as, file shares or internal database applications.
