Both utilize the same network protocols (TCP/IP) and hardware (routers, switches, etc.). VPN's are similar to Frame Relay PVC's (Permanent Virtual Circuits) in that both sides of the connection are owned by their respective sides, with a shared network between.
Equifax offers this type of solution as well as a fully managed solution in which Equifax manages the entire network, from router to router. Contact your Technical Client Services Analyst for assistance with your connectivity solution.
