Regarding recent news of a 14 month long VPN crackdown campaign in China, SSBG would like to clarify the following:
This crackdown is targeting 3rd party VPN Proxy Tools (Astril / ExpressVPN / SwitchVPN / etc) used by locals to get around the Great Firewall filtering of Youtube / Facebook / Google / etc. As long as your VPN connection is applied only for the provisioning of internal Corp Network assets and resources, then you are not going to be in conflict. If your plan was to use that VPN link to give all of your office users in China unrestricted access to otherwise blocked sites in China, then there would potentially be a legal issue, but it would not impact the actual VPN link.
