What is a VPN, & Why Do I Need One?
Basically, a VPN allows you to make a public network private. Why do you need it? When enabled, a VPN creates an encrypted channel between you and a remote server, hopefully operated by our VPN services. 😉
Cyber criminals are primed to take advantage of users, and due to the pandemic, hackers are targeting remote workers, as they are easy to overwhelm through chaos. Sounds crazy, right?! With a private, secure network, you can rest assured that the information you are sending and receiving is being filtered through online privacy tools, particularly when accessing internet on-the-go. This protects your IP address, identity, location and more from prying eyes.
If you think this does not apply to you, your company or your employees, you should consider this the next time you set up your workstation at a Starbucks or an airport. It seems harmless, but what information do you have stored on your computer? Do you have credit card information saved? Do you have copies of your passports, birth certificates, insurance cards, etc.? Identity theft is real, and it happens far more often than you would think. Unfortunately, people do not become aware of this reality until it is too late.
