A virtual private network, or VPN, is an encrypted connection over the Internet from a device to a network. When data is sent over an encrypted VPN connection it ensures that the sensitive data is safely transmitted. It prevents unauthorized people from eavesdropping on the traffic and allows the user to conduct work remotely
How does a VPN system improve your security?
- Encrypts all data over the internet
- Masks your IP Address
- Protects you from Malicious websites
A remote access VPN securely connects a device outside the corporate office. These devices are known as endpoints. An endpoint may be a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. With advances in VPN technology security checks can now be conducted on endpoints to make sure they meet a certain posture before connecting. Think of remote access as remoting your home computer to a work network.
