A virtual private network, otherwise known as a VPN is a critical aspect of keeping your business secure while operations are taking place outside of the office. If you currently use a VPN, you might still be wondering: What is a VPN? How do they work? What can they do and what are they not about to do? Let’s dive in.

What is a VPN?

A VPN uses encryption to create a tunnel between the device you are using and the data you are accessing. VPNs are important because if someone knows where to look, they might be able to take a peek at your data while its in transit.

What Can It Do?

  • Here are some features you can expect from a VPN and why your business might want to consider getting one.
  • While using public networks, they can secure your data.
  • Enhances privacy and reduced online tracking
  • Limited bandwidth throttling and ISP monitoring
  • Limiting geo-tracking
  • Accessing region-locked content
