Based in Zeist, the Netherlands, PGGM manages about €90 billion (U.S.$130 billion). For years, employees had used a virtual private network (VPN) to connect to IT resources from remote locations. However, the VPN introduced several security risks. Workstations infected with a virus could easily infect the network, and sensitive data could be compromised if downloaded onto an unmanaged workstation. In 2007, PGGM replaced its VPN with a Web-based solution supported by Terminal Services in the Windows Server 2008 operating system. The solution allows workstations to use HTTP over Secure Socket Layer (HTTPS) to connect to data and applications that remain behind the corporate firewall. As a result of its solution, PGGM boosted network security and employee productivity, simplified system management, and made it easier for people to access the resources they need.
