Was doing my bi-annual checkup today, and when I was looking at my firewall ports, I noticed 3 VPNs that I did not download (at least not intentionally) and I was wondering if someone could clarify what they are, and whether or not I should delete them. I don't particularly understand what a VPN is, but to see 3 things interacting with my firewall that I do not recognize kind of alarmed me.


One is F5.vpn.client

One is Checkpoint.VPN

and the last is JuniperNetworks.JunosPulsevpn


Thanks in advance for you help.


Edit: it should be noted that this rig is new, and my first with Windows since Vista (it has Windows 8.1). I have not looked at the firewall ports before today, so they could just be default and I wouldn't know.
