Remote Access Service (RAS)

Remote Access Service – safe VPN access to the corporate network

The workplace is wherever your employees are: in the office, but also at home or on site with customers. That’s why access to company applications and data needs to work from anywhere - laptop, tablet and smartphone. RAS provides secure VPN access so that employees can work and contribute to company success whenever and wherever they are.

Remote Access Service provides flexibility

These days, flexible working is a must for every company. As is secure and available access to applications to safeguard business processes. RAS meets these requirements for flexibility from every device, while at the same time guaranteeing security. As RAS is based on the WAN service, you benefit from the Swisscom network’s high-quality features.

Internet VPN access options

With Internet VPN access, authorised individuals have secure access to e-mails, documents, databases and client-server applications from any mobile device via the corporate network.

Always-On VPN

Always-On VPN prevents direct access to internet resources by automatically establishing a VPN connection. The connection is instantly established, and the user is seamlessly authenticated. Once the client is in the trusted corporate network, the VPN connection is stopped or disconnected.


For regulatory or security reasons, access to company data within certain sectors and companies is not permitted from specific countries or is only permitted from Switzerland. Geoblocking supports these requirements.

Strong Authentication

This strengthens access security by requiring two-factor authentication. In addition to user name and password, identity is also verified via the Mobile ID, Mobile ID app, hardware or SMS token.

Dynamic Split Tunneling

Reduces VPN traffic for software updates, patches, live streaming and SaaS applications and offers the possibility of dynamically excluding data traffic from the VPN tunnel using FQDN DNS resolution.

Typical Remote Access Service use cases

VPN connections are used to guarantee that internal and external employees have secure access to the necessary company data and applications, allowing you to facilitate flexible ways of working.

This service can be used flexibly thanks to the pay-per-use billing model. You can start the solution with a PoV (proof-of-value) before subsequently using it productively. You can deploy it as a fall-back solution or simply start with a few users and scale it up later as needed.

Communicate securely, wherever you are, whatever the time and using any device. Remote Access Service allows you to connect mobile devices such as tablets, laptops and smartphone with your network, enabling your employees to access company data and applications at any time. This provides you with a secure foundation for flexible working; working from home for example.

Provide authorised employees and external contractors with secure access to e-mails, documents, databases or client-server applications using an existing internet connection.
