What is Cloud VPN?
Cloud VPN is a type of VPN that uses a cloud-based network infrastructure to provide VPN services. It provides globally accessible VPN access for end users and subscribers through a cloud platform over the public internet.
Cloud VPN is also known as hosted VPN or virtual private network as a service (VPNaaS).
The goal behind cloud VPN is to provide the same secure and globally accessible access to the VPN service without the need for a VPN infrastructure on the part of the user. The user connects to the cloud VPN via the provider's website or a desktop / mobile app. Similarly, cloud VPN pricing differs from standard VPN service as the customer charges based on usage or a flat-rate subscription. Users are billed based on the amount of hardware, storage, network, and other resources.
