Remote VPN Access

The SPC remote access system provides secure access to SPC applications and data using Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the method used by the majority of commerce sites on the World Wide Web. The SSL security protocol protects the security and confidentiality of data as it is passes over the internet through the many way points between remote computers and SPC. The connection requirements are detailed in the links below along with a process outline for initiating, authorizing and enabling remote access service. All remote access users must be authorized on the system using the process outlined below.
