Safe internet everywhere

eduVPN makes untrusted networks secure by setting up an encrypted connection via a VPN. This way, students, teachers and researchers can safely browse the internet even from unsecured connections and you can give them secure access to your institution's protected systems.

Two applications

  • Secure internet: when your institution purchases eduVPN, all users can encrypt all their internet traffic. This protects them from local prying eyes in any location.
  • Institute access: opens up protected institution services to specific eduVPN user groups. This allows these users - via an encrypted eduVPN connection - to also access applications relevant to them at home, such as a numbers programme, the accounting software, shared folders or staff data.
