Cloud-based VPN service (VPN as a Service, VPNaaS) enables you to rapidly connect CROC Cloud with the remote infrastructure via IPSec VPN in either tunnel, or transport mode. In addition, VPN connection can be established with other cloud platforms (e.g. AWS) or even between two different VPCs in CROC Cloud.
VPNaaS supports advanced security protocols and algorithms and allows you to choose which tunnel options to use when establishing a VPN connection. This contributes to a truly secure connection and makes VPNaaS more compatible with customer equipment. You can, for instance, seamlessly connect cloud infrastructure to your site using a MikroTik router and IPSec in a tunnel mode, as well as configure the connection between the cloud and Cisco ASA, even if its firmware version does not support IPSec VTI.
The high availability VPN connection mode implies the creation of two tunnels. In normal operation, both tunnels are active. If one of the tunnels fails, all traffic is automatically redirected through the second tunnel, so that cloud resources are still available. To increase availability, tunnels are terminated in different availability zones. Each tunnel can be configured independently. Learn more
