What is site-to-site VPN?
Site-to-site VPN is a type of VPN connection that is created between two separate locations.
It offers the ability to connect geographically separated locations or networks, usually over the public Internet connection or a WAN connection.
Site-to-site VPN typically creates a direct, unshared, and secure connection between two endpoints. Site-to-site VPN can be intranet-based or extranet-based.
An intranet-based site-to-site VPN is created between an organization's proprietary networks, while an extranet-based site-to-site VPN is used to connect to external partner networks or an intranet.
The connection in a site-to-site VPN is generally activated through a VPN gateway device.
