VPN Secure Connections

What Is a VPN, and Why Would You Need One?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet. VPNs can be used to secure access your business network from home or while travelling, provide secure VOIP, protect from hacker snooping when using Wi-Fi hotspots, access country / region-restricted networks, shield browsing activity from prying eyes and more.

VOIP, or Voice-over-IP, is a cost effective method of making internet phone calls. However, VOIP services can be hacked by attackers with good knowledge of internet architecture.

VPN tools have specific versions of encryption to secure your data. For instance, you might work from home, but you still need to send information to your office. Your business network might be very secure, but your home network might not be. You can however use a VPN to protect your business.
