What is a VPN?
A virtual private network (VPN) creates a secure private network across the Internet and enables your employees to safely send and receive data as if their computers or phones were part of your organization’s private network. For example, your employees should use a VPN to protect their email or web browsing while outside the office, such as working remotely from home or traveling for business.
A VPN helps safeguard your employees’ transmitted information by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of encryption, dedicated connections and virtual tunneling protocols. Any applications or resources that your employees access remotely via a VPN have the same functionality, management and security as those inside your private network.
