Augmented VPN

Comparing an augmented virtual private network (VPN) to a traditional VPN is similar to comparing a GPS navigator to a simple road map. A GPS navigator has many embedded functionalities, like location awareness, current traffic information, search, service locator, route tracking, and other features that have provided an evolutionary step forward. A similar development is taking place with VPN. During the early phase of globalization, it was enough for a company to be able to connect its offices and production sites with a simple VPN or point-to-point dedicated circuit.

However, the situation has changed dramatically since those days.
