Technical Features

As Faction is a national leader in private cloud, cloud networking, and cloud storage, we are launching a set of capabilities to help customers connect their IT environments more simply than ever before.

Managed VPN
Faction provides a Managed VPN service. With both site-to-site VPNs based on IPsec technology and client-to-site SSLVPNs available for end users to gain secure access, we solve for getting your end users where they need to be on the network.

  • End user operating system support includes Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux.
  • Two-factor authentication ensures security.
  • Access to VPN Endpoints are logged to ensure a clean audit trail.
  • Faction monitors the status of your IPsec VPN tunnels 24x7 and we will proactively troubleshoot and notify you if we see a problem.

Managed Remote Circuit
Faction can work with you to price and procure remote access circuits from your remote location. We can tie your circuit into our backbone at multiple locations, optimizing the price and path to get you on-net in the best possible way. Faction will monitor Managed Remote Circuits and work with upstream providers to restore service if an issue arises.
