Virtual Private Network


VPN stands for "Virtual Private Network". With VPN, you can set up a secure subnetwork within an open, unprotected network, where communication is sealed off against third party access. This is achieved by so-called "tunneling" of the data traffic via a VPN server where all connections have to be authenticated during connection buildup. At the same time, the data is encrypted.

In order to establish a connection, use the AnyConnect software.

In order to be able to log on to AnyConnect, you need the software and your login data. You will find the client software under Instructions for the various operating systems.
