What is a VPN?

When you turn on a VPN, it creates an encrypted tunnel between you and a server that is handled by a VPN service provider. This means that your internet traffic is being directed through this tunnel making your data secure. When your traffic exits through the VPN server, it appears that your computer has the IP address of this server which helps protect your identity and your location.

This is a bit technical so here is an example to illustrate how a VPN works. If you are at a café or at the airport, you might want to connect to the public Wi-Fi network but you cannot be sure whether the network is legitimate or not and who wants access to your personal data. However, if you connect to a public Wi-Fi with a VPN, you can be sure that all your data is safe – not even the VPN providers can access your personal information.

Organisations can use VPNs to connect to local networks that are located in different locations around the world. This allows employees to access its organisation’s network resources while working remotely.

What is a VPN?

Does your business need a VPN solution?

Today, there is an increasing demand from businesses who want to use private VPN services for their business.

Whether your business is large or small, it is highly recommended that you acquire a VPN.

With a VPN your business can enhance its online security, allow employees remote access to corporate data and a VPN is generally also a very cost effective solution for your business.

Lately, the need for a VPN has shifted from security reasons to employees’ access to private networks within the organisation and their ability to work from different geographic locations. There are several aspects to consider before deciding which VPN service to use, and you want to initially ask whether your business needs a VPN.

However, there are multiple reasons why you should get a VPN solution.

The first is the added protection of sensitive data. Cyber-attacks are a significant risk and it is not only major corporations that are affected by these attacks – small businesses are also targeted. Proper cyber security measures are as a result of most concern for many businesses that offer their products and services online.

It is expected that your IT employees should implement security measures such as firewall protection, encryption and policies for security. With a VPN you can add another layer of protection as using a private network ensures that your internet connection is always encrypted.

Another aspect is the security threat from public networks.

If you are going to access sensitive corporate data on a public network, there is a risk of compromising this sensitive information to unwanted eyes.

This scenario can happen on business trips where employees are forced to use public networks at a hotel or at a restaurant.

Accessing public networks is commonplace today, even your smartphone may be connected to some networks by itself. The consequences of being exposed to cyber-attacks would be devastating. To prevent this, you will need a VPN that ensures that all corporate data is secure via an encrypted connection.

Besides the added layer of security, a VPN solution also makes it possible for you to access organisational infrastructure remotely.

This is likewise beneficial while on business trips to geographical locations that might restrict access to the internet. With a VPN connection, you can connect to a different country and server that is not your actual location. This makes it possible for you to check certain websites or apps that you normally would not be able to in that specific country.

Also, a VPN service is very cost effective for your business. You can easily choose what kind of plan and service that suits your needs the most. After you have signed up for a VPN solution, you can turn on the network, choose country settings and then you can relax knowing that all your data is secured via an encrypted internet connection. The potential downsides would have dire consequences.

VPN security for businesses

One of the main reasons and priorities for businesses is to make sure its data is protected.

The more a specific business is associated with sensitive data, the more it is necessary to enhance security measures. This is where a VPN can help your business.

Today, different types of technologies are changing the way business is done and how organisations operate. Attitudes towards data protection are changing as well. Communication is typically done online and with multinational companies it is a necessity. Therefore, it is important to formulate a good security policy that ensures the protection of sensitive data and corporate intellectual property. Sensitive data may include:

● Personal details of an organisation’s employees and clients
● Accounting and financial reports
● Marketing strategies
● New R&D projects
● And other sensitive information to the organisation

Limitations by VPNs

It is worth noting that VPNs do have limitations, and it is possible to track your online behaviour. Even if you have a VPN connected, cookies can still track your behaviour on a given website and also even after you have left the website.

Also, some websites consider traffic from VPN connections as suspicious and therefore they will not let you connect to their services. In these circumstances, you can try to connect to a different VPN server otherwise you might have to wait until you can access a network that you trust.

However, it is not debatable that VPN connections enhance your security online making you a much more difficult target for cyber-attacks.
