Advanced Action Award for TM VPN Network Provision, Special Awards from HQ

JFETM’s Work From Home (WFH) arrangement initially used Pulse Secure as the VPN for secured remote connection. But due to its circuitous setup, delays and frequent disconnection were experienced. To address the issue, members of IT Support Section and IT Internal Development Group worked on setting up a local VPN equivalent to Pulse Secure while at the same time compliant with JFE Group IT Security Rule. Upon implementation, faster remote access connectivity and lower disconnection rates were experienced compared with using Pulse Secure. In addition to the faster connection, TM VPN’s annual cost is only 25% of Pulse Secure’ s cost.
