Cloud VPN

Definition - What does Cloud VPN mean?

Cloud VPN is a type of VPN that utilizes a cloud-based network infrastructure to deliver VPN services. It provides globally accessible VPN access to end users and subscribers through a cloud platform over public Internet.

Cloud VPN is also known as hosted VPN or virtual private network as a service (VPNaaS).

Techopedia explains Cloud VPN

The objective behind cloud VPN is to provide the same level of secure and globally accessible VPN service access without the need for any VPN infrastructure on the user's end. The user connects to the cloud VPN through the provider’s website or a desktop/mobile app. Similarly, the pricing of cloud VPN is different than standard VPN service as it charges the customer based on pay per usage or a flat-fee subscription. Users are charged based on the amount of hardware, storage, network and other resources utilized.
