As more businesses rely on the Internet to fuel their networks, adding extra layers of protection to secure these networks is essential. That’s where VPNs come in— they’re private networks that help encrypt information exchanged through the Internet, ultimately safeguarding your entire network and everything connected to it.

A pretty cool concept considering the browsing security issues that have been flooding our media. All this talk about data consumer protection laws, the aftermath of whistleblowers and the overall security concern in our online culture has sparked discussions about VPN.
