Cloud VPN is a type of VPN that operates on a cloud-based network infrastructure, which is also sometimes referred to as hosted VPN or VPN as a Service (VPNaaS). Cloud VPN provides a global VPN access to endusers, including subscribers and third-party users, over the public internet. A VPN is mostly meant to permit a user, an internet connection, over a server, run by an enterprise. As most of the data or information on the server is encrypted for privacy, a cloud VPN software can provide a secure access over the internet for using the private network through the virtual environment.

COMPETITIVE LEADERSHIP MAPPING TERMINOLOGY
