One of our vendors will be moving their IT infrastructure to the cloud.
Previously they have accessed our on premise CRM through VPN. They are saying once they move to the cloud, site to site VPN will no longer be an option.
What options exist for them to access our CRM once they move to the cloud?
I have thought of a Web Api, but this is an urgent request on their part, and so hopefully we can find something that doesn't require too much development time.
Thanks in advance.
We might need more context here, but I understand that you are moving to Dynamics CRM Online (Customer Engament), you are right no VPN is needed, every user with access to the web will be able to find your organization and to login they will just need an account and a password.
One other scenario I can think of is that you will manage Azure servers and you will keep an OnPremise deployment in the cloud, in that case this is more an Azure configuration question, but I would tell that you can use a VPN from Azure documentation:
If my assumptions are wrong, please help me clarifying your scenario and lets see if we can give you better advise.
