Azure VPN Gateway’s provide a secure means of connecting to a virtual private network in Azure. You can connect a site-to-site VPN, such as a remote office to Azure or a Point-to-site. Point-to-site is for client VPNs, connecting your laptop to an Azure VNET for example.

Starting next month Microsoft are starting to remove TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support from Azure VPN gateways, leaving only support for TLS 1.2. This is to ensure PCI Compliance and maintain security and performance.
