SIMSafe VPN agents provide a secure tunnel between any windows host and the SIMSafe service.
The agent runs as a windows host and makes an outbound only SSL connection to the SIMSafe service. Once established, this always on tunnel stays connected and is used to securely route traffic from SIMSafe devices to a customer network.
The VPN Agent is the 'Office Network' component of the remote access solution. The VPN Agent must be installed on an always-on machine in the office network. It runs as a background Windows service and must be running for a functioning VPN.
A VPN Agent provides remote access to all hosts on your Office Network so you only need to install one, however additional agents can be installed to provide redundancy and/or multi-site remote access.
