Techopedia explains VPN Hardware

VPN hardware typically combines with VPN software technologies to deliver end-to-end VPN services. VPN hardware generally is divided into two key categories:

  • Computing Hardware: Examples include VPN server, client (PC), mobile and handheld devices.

  • Networking Hardware: Examples includes VPN switch, router, firewall (hardware), network card, cable and wireless devices.

VPN hardware is different than hardware VPN, which is an all-in-one device (hardware + software) for providing VPN services.
