The workforce is becoming more and more remote each day, while we are accessing sensitive data from unprotected locations like our home and public Wi-Fi.
And the bad guys are always lurking.
So how can we protect ourselves and our data from unwanted third parties?
VPN to the rescue!
A VPN, or virtual private network, gives online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public internet connection. Fancy, huh?
The VPN masks your IP address so online actions are virtually untraceable.
It also creates a secure and encrypted tunnel for all data to pass through, providing more privacy than a secured Wi-Fi hotspot.
Think: checking emails, looking at your bank account balance, shopping online, paying bills, etc. How often are you doing these things without a secured connection?
A few things to examine when it comes to VPN selection:
Do they respect your privacy? Do they run the most current protocol? Do they set data limits? Where are the servers located? Will you be able to set up VPN access on multiple devices? How much will it cost?
