A virtual private network (VPN) is a virtualized extension of a private network across the internet. A VPN creates a secure encrypted connection transferring traffic to a proxy server, protecting the data on the device from hackers and other threats. It enables users to send and receive data over a public network as if their computers were directly connected to their private network. The benefits of VPN include security, scalability and management of a private network.
VPN is essential for companies with employees that work from home or in remote locations. A VPN enables users to access work documents, networks, share drives, etc. from their remote location as if they were physically in the office. For small businesses looking to grow a VPN is a convenient way to add new locations and onboard new employees in one cohesive network with ease.
