Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a widely deployed technology for multi-office business to build a secure communication over an IP network between the geographically separate sites. It has become one of the most common tools for data security as there is a greater need for encrypting communication than ever before.

IPSec VPN tunnel are traditionally established based on a single Internet circuit. Should the circuit fails, there is no way to keep the connectivity for the LAN-to-LAN access. In addition, if more bandwidth is required to accommodate the growing demand, this is possibly difficult to achieve through traditional NAT-based link load balancing technology.

Automated Failover & Load Balancing for LAN-to-LAN Traffic

>  IPSec VPN Tunnels Termination and Load Balancing

The inbuilt feature of multi-path IPSec VPN Termination and Load Balancing enables LAN-to-LAN traffic to be securely distributed across multiple WAN links, and it works in conjunction with policy-based routing. This increases the flexibility of traffic control and routing decisions in site-to-site network deployments.

Through the inbuilt multi-path IPSec VPN Termination and Load Balancing, it is now technically possible to form and send LAN-to-LAN traffic over multiple IPSec VPN tunnels. The IPSec VPN tunnels terminated on the Q-Balancer appliances can be either standard IPSec or the Q-Balancer proprietary IPSec VPN tunnels.

>  IPsec VPN Third-Party Compatibility

Any VPN device which supports standard IPSec may be connected to a Q-Balancer appliance running IPSec VPN. In addition, multiple IPSec tunnels can be established with third-party VPN devices, and meanwhile multiple IPSec tunnels can be built with other Q-Balancer appliances running IPSec VPN.

Connectivity – LAN-to-LAN connectivity will remain up and running even if outage occurs on one of the WAN links.
Increased Speed – LAN-to-LAN VPN traffic is distributed across multiple WAN links.
Flexibility – It can be deployed anywhere in the world, and built on WAN transports of any type.
Compatibility – It works with any VPN solutions that support standard IPSec.
Uncompromised Security – Other than military-grade encryption for tunnels, and VPN load balancing provides additional data protection by spreading VPN traffic across multiple paths.
