The Virtual Private Networking (VPN) solution from Microsoft
The VPN solution is seamlessly integrated into both Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 to ensure your users can connect to your corporate network from virtually anywhere (internet connection required). With most VPN solutions, the user must manually initiate a connection to the corporate network through a cumbersome process involving additional software and launching of an application. Microsoft’s VPN solution, Direct Access, is directly integrated into the operating system allowing users to visit a corporate internal SharePoint collaboration website to view documents just as easily as they can visit Bing.
The Branch office networking solution from Microsoft
Help drive down the cost of WAN connectivity by ensuring that copies of key documents are cached locally in branch offices. BranchCache reduces the amount of networking traffic over your WAN links by allowing users to download local copies of these documents instead of traversing the WAN to retrieve.
