As the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop in unprecedented ways, it is understandable that many are uncertain of how to maintain business continuity. As many of you Synology wireless router users have already known, the wireless router also features powerful VPN server capabilities that enable businesses to quickly facilitate a remote workforce.
In an effort to help businesses resume operations remotely, Synology has announced that its VPN Plus licenses will become free to purchase starting from April 6 until September 30, 2020. Many businesses have adopted work from home policies in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the safety of their employees while keeping the business running as usual.
According to Hewitt Lee, Director of Synology Product Management Group, looking at the numbers of businesses rushing to adopt VPN solutions in order to set up an infrastructure to enable a remote workforce over the past two months, Synology has observed a five-fold increase in VPN Plus license purchases.
Both existing and new owners of Synology’s MR2200ac wireless router will be able to purchase VPN Plus Client VPN Access and Site-to-Site VPN licenses for free. All licenses are perpetual and do not expire or require additional costs after September 30, 2020.
