Remote access is one of the prevalent business trends in today’s computing pervasive business environments. The ease of access to internal private networks over the internet by telecommuter devices has given birth too many security threats to the endpoint devices. The application client software and data at rest on the endpoint of remote access methods such as: Tunneling, Portal, Desktop Applications and Direct Access do not offer protection for the communication between the VPN gateway and internal resources. This paper, therefore investigate the security pitfalls of remote access for establishing virtual private network methods. To address these challenges, a remote access method to secure endpoint communication is proposed. The study adopted investigative research design by use of empirical review on the security aspect of the current state VPN Remote Access methods. This necessitates the review of the research article on the current state and related works which leads to critiques and offer proposed solution to remote access endpoint VPN. The scope of this study is limited to secure virtual private network endpoint data communication. In this paper, an investigation of these access technologies given.
