All of a sudden, in response to the threat of COVID-19 infection, you’ve got a remote workforce. That means you have employees surfing the web using their own Wi-Fi networks, while also trying to connect to your company network.
You have to be sure that connection is fast and, above all, secure. That’s why companies like yours are turning to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution to centralize and manage remote access.
Due to current situation, users and businesses rely more and more on the internet to conduct business and drive revenue. These last few months, the internet became an even more dangerous place. It’s critical that you protect your users and your business from the threats that originate from the internet.
Cases like the US Health and Human Services Department or University Hospital Brno will be seen more and more often. The number of cyber-attacks is on the rise as criminals are exploiting the fear and the urgency created by the pandemic and many public institutions are suffering the consequences.
All businesses need to adapt fast to the new market conditions. The number one thing all businesses, no matter the size, want to make sure to do is to keep business running. To adapt to the current challenges, a high number of business went remote – all employees are working now from home.
As a consequence, all employees are surfing the web using their own Wi-Fi networks. That means businesses need to make sure their employees are connected to the network FAST and securely.
What does a VPN to your network?
VPN is creating a data tunnel between the local network and any node in any location, making it seem like it is in the same place. By encrypting the data, it makes it unreadable.
When accessing company data, which is mostly confidential, businesses have to rely on a good VPN solution, that is easy to deploy and use. The office server contains proprietary information and it needs to be protected when employees are accessing it.
While there is a big offering on free VPN services, there are more and more concerns regarding their effectiveness. With a limited selection of servers, connection speeds are slower due to servers being overcrowded and last but least, there is a doubtful data protection on the logs, history and files.
10 things to check before choosing your VPN provider:
