Data security and privacy are real concerns for business professionals, and with an increase in people working from home, those concerns are even greater than before. One of the easiest ways for professionals to protect their internet traffic is by using a virtual private network, or VPN.
VPNs provide employees with secure access to an organization’s internal network and data, from anywhere. In essence, think of a VPN as a private tunnel from a computer to a network: It’s secure, encrypted, and can do everything a computer located in a work network or another country can.
