Virtual Private Network (VPN)

A virtual private network (VPN) is a secure connection between two or more devices. Businesses often use VPNs to connect remote employees to their internal enterprise networks. VPNs can also be used for other purposes, such as streaming online content or accessing region-restricted websites.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Virtual Private Network (VPN)

For SMBs, one of the main benefits of using a VPN is that it helps keep data safe and secure. With a VPN, SMBs can encrypt their traffic so no one can see what is being transmitted. This helps protect against hackers or cybercriminals trying to steal sensitive information. Additionally, VPNs assist in preserving privacy by preventing third-party companies from tracking user activity.
