Integrating Rivery With VPN
- 3 Minutes to read
This document provides a comprehensive overview of the integration between Rivery and a Virtual Private Network (VPN). It aims to explain the concepts, benefits, and technical aspects of using a VPN connection with Rivery to ensure secure and private data transfers.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a network technology that establishes a secure and encrypted connection over a public network, such as the internet. The primary purpose of a VPN is to enable users to securely access and transmit data across public networks as if they were directly connected to a private network. By doing so, VPNs offer privacy, data integrity, and confidentiality by encrypting the traffic between the user's device and the destination network.
Benefits of Using VPN With Rivery
Integrating Rivery with a VPN offers several significant benefits, including:
VPNs provide an additional layer of security by encrypting data transfers between the user's network and the Rivery platform. This encryption ensures that sensitive data is protected from unauthorized access or interception, reducing the risk of data breaches and potential cyber-attacks.
When using a VPN, data transfers occur within a private and secure connection, shielding the information from potential threats on public networks. This level of data privacy is especially crucial when dealing with sensitive or confidential data, as it mitigates the risk of data leakage.
Secure Remote Access
Through the integration of a VPN, users can securely access Rivery's platform and resources from remote locations. This capability allows team members to work from various geographic locations while maintaining the same level of security as if they were directly connected to the organization's internal network.
Using a VPN with Rivery helps Rivery meet regulatory and compliance requirements that mandate secure data transmission and storage, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), SOC 2 (Type II) and other relevant standards. By adhering to these standards, Rivery ensures that customers' data remains protected and compliant with relevant data protection regulations.
Prerequisites for Setting up Rivery With VPN
In Rivery, the integration with a VPN is performed manually for each customer. Before initiating the configuration, it is essential to meet certain prerequisites on your end.
Please ensure you have the following information readily available:
1. Vendor Information
Provide the details of the VPN vendor or service you are using. This information will help us better understand your VPN setup and proceed with the configuration process accordingly.
2. Database Information
IP addresses and Ports: As Rivery cannot resolve the names of the customer's databases, the IP addresses and corresponding ports must be provided for proper configuration.
3. IP Range Verification
Confirm that the IP range "172.31.0.0/24" is not part of the your IP range.
This verification is crucial to avoid conflicts and ensure smooth VPN integration.
4. Customer VPN Details
Provide the necessary information, including a screenshot, about the customer's VPN setup, along with the IP address used for the VPN connection.
5. Static Routes of Customer Network
The static routes of the customer's network, particularly where the databases reside, must be furnished to facilitate seamless data transfers between Rivery and the customer's infrastructure.
- For a successful VPN connection with Rivery and a seamless, secure data transfer experience, customers are required to meet all the mentioned prerequisites. Not providing this information may lead to delays or the inability to configure the VPN integration. Therefore, customers are kindly requested to contact the Rivery Security Team and provide all the necessary details as specified above.
