What is the difference between IPsec and SSL VPNs?


Which option is best for your business or customer's application when choosing between IPsec and SSL VPN? Here are some quick points to help you decide.

SSL VPNs

Pros:

  • Support Included in all Zyxel firewall devices
  • Already supported by most remote user browsers (Windows) with a free extension client (SecuExtender). MacOS SecuExtender client can be purchased. 
  • Simple to configure as it's equivalent to logging into a secure website for web-based applications like email, cloud storage 
  • Can easily control what applications are accessible via SSL which can make it more secure

Cons:

  • Dependent on the client device and thus throughput can be low 
  • Limited to access specific applications (Unless put in full tunnel mode) 
  • Cannot do site to site, office to office tunnels

IPSec VPNs

Pros:

  • Most secure option, making it harder for hackers to get into your system with its encryption
  • Fastest throughput option, ideal for large file shares 
  • Can be configured to access network as full members of the network 
  • Can control access all resources 
  • Can build secure connectivity from site to site, office to office with a single VPN tunnel

Cons:

  • Requires an IPsec client software on each of the devices or hardware that supports IPsec VPN at the endpoint (Zyxel SecuExtender)
  • More complicated to set up for end user and for branch office (Zyxel VPN wizard will help) 
  • Need understanding of network in order to block resources you don't want people to have remote access to
