The Fort of Cyber Security – What is a VPN?

Protect your business with a Virtual Private Network

But what exactly is a VPN?

A Virtual Private Network gives you online privacy & anonymity by creating a private network from a public internet connection.

VPNs hide your IP address so your online actions are untraceable. Most importantly, VPN services establish secure and encrypted connections to provide greater privacy than even a secured Wi-Fi hotspot.


Why do you need to use a VPN you ask?

Browsing the web or transacting on an unsecured Wi-Fi network means you could be potentially exposing your personal information and browsing endeavours. Which is why a virtual private network, more commonly known as a VPN, should be a must for anyone concerned about their online security and privacy. Especially from a business point of view.


How do you go about choosing a VPN?

What’s the best way to choose a virtual private network you’re probably thinking? Here are some questions to ask when you’re choosing a VPN provider:

– Do they respect your privacy?  (You’ll be surprised that not all providers will have a no-log policy…)

– Do they run the most current protocol?

– Do they set data limits?

Where are the servers located?

Will you be able to set up VPN access on multiple devices?

– How much will it cost?
