Working Remotely, You Need a Virtual Private Network

Working Remotely, You Need a Virtual Private Network

To those who weren’t around BEFORE the Internet became an irreplaceable business tool, it’s almost hard to imagine how businesses operated when this tool didn’t exist. Storing sensitive data has never been such an easy thing to do but at what cost? It is undeniable that the Internet has opened doors for not only us, but criminals as well. Today we discuss how these doors can easily be secured with the implementation of a virtual private network, or VPN.

A VPN provides a useful layer of security when transmitting data. It does this by forming dedicated connections over a Wide Area Network (WAN). This dedicated connection utilizes encryption to protect sensitive data. While doing so doesn’t create an impenetrable security system, it does ensure this sensitive data will be unreadable and useless if a hacker intercepts the data transmission. 

VPNs can be very useful to all businesses alike. Here are three reasons a VPN is right for you:

  1. Cost Effectiveness - A VPN provides a sense of security for what amounts to a minimal investment… a real no-brainer for a business that needs to keep the data it transfers safe.
  2. Client Confidence - While many may not consider this when weighing the benefits of a VPN, the confidence you will have in your data security will help impress your clients, both current and potential. An impressed client is more likely to be a loyal client.
  3. Proven Productivity - When a VPN is used, the data transferred over it is obscured from unwanted eyes. This means that a VPN can be used to help make an insecure connection safe for your data to be transferred over, allowing your staff the ability to safely work from out of the office, decreasing the impact of absences. Plus, a VPN is very user-friendly, meaning that your least tech-savvy employee can still use it effectively.

A VPN is critical to a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, especially if you operate out of more than one location or have remote workers and data therefore needs to be accessed from more than one area. To learn more about putting a VPN into place, reach out to Business Solutions Group! Call 866.546.1004 today.
