Road Warrior

Introduction

PAX Road Warrior is a user-friendly and portable VPN device that enables your mobile workforce to securely access corporate network resources from virtually anywhere.

PAX Road Warrior

The device behaves like a personal wireless access point. To connect to the corporate network, users just need to connect the device to a public WiFi network or link the device to their smartphone in order to connect to the Internet.

Once the device is able to connect to the Internet, the VPN connection to corporate HQ is established automatically.
