A VPN connection (Virtual Private Network) offers the possibility of accessing an existing network from outside. This can be a company network or a private network.
In times of home office, many employees use a VPN connection. A suitable VPN application ensures that data cannot be read by unauthorised persons. In addition, it enables access to the company’s drives that are located on the company’s own server and should only be available within the company network.
This means that you can communicate with the outside world with a VPN connection, but it is not possible for outsiders to communicate with you via a non-proprietary communication solution, as this party is trying to access your “protected” area “from the outside”.
Therefore, when using OKOMO, make sure that you do not use an active VPN connection. This makes it possible for outsiders to reach you.
If you have further questions regarding the secure use of OKOMO, please have a look at our article: “My organization uses a proxy/firewall and blocks third-party tools by default. How can I still use OKOMO?” or feel free to contact us directly.
Happy Calling from all of us by OKOMO!
