SSL VPN Growth: Short Month, Big Numbers
The number of people using our SSL VPN service continues to grow at an impressive rate, and even though February is the shortest month of the year, we managed to post our largest numbers ever. We've seen an increase in corporate use of this service, as well as in the use of this service by customers in the retail space.
Back in June of last year I blogged about how we had passed 300,000 users, managed over 3.5 billion sessions, and saw over 100 terabytes of data securely transferred. Now those numbers are in the 350,000 user range, with 4.25 billion connections managed, and with almost 160 terabytes of data securely transferred around the planet.
It certainly would appear that businesses are getting the message that having a fully managed SSL VPN service can lower costs, increase flexibility, offer ease of remote access administration, increase granular control, and deliver business continuity.
Our best customers are informed customers, and so we just wanted to let you know about the growing popularity of this great way of being connected to your customers, partners, and employees.
