Hey aime I'm very sorry for this very and extremely late reply. If you do see this can you post to what I'm about to mention.
The question is not a simple one as from what I can tell you must be in a position of authority of own a business.
Trying to keep it simple.
A SLL Portal VPN
allows a user to use a single standard SSL connection to a Web site to securely access multiple network services because SSL portal VPN the basic idea is that the SSL VPN gateway proxies web servers on the inside network and rewrites the URLs on the fly.
SSL Tunnel VPN
Their are security issues with both but for me being paranoid type of person the the proxy in the middle of a Portal VPN is a no no as this service can keep logs ECT and track a users history.
Hope that helps.
