Do Not Sacrifice Security for Mobility

As a business owner security should be of the utmost importance to you and your business. Adapting to the modern age means implementing different strategies to adapt to employee physical location, travelling employees, or even employees dealing with circumstantial dilemmas such as health problems or family matters. Whilst your business can experiment with different off-site methods, there should always be one constant: security.

Security comes in the form of a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN is a way to securely bridge an employee to a business’ data. Today, we discuss the benefits that come with implementing a VPN, as well as how it works.

Explaining What a VPN Is

Picture the connection between your business’ networks and a mobile device, whether it be a laptop, a smartphone, or even a tablet. This connection is essentially a tunnel. Now this tunnel is always open, however there is not always traffic going through it. At either end, a translator.

This is how a VPN works. It uses encryption to hide data when travelling through the tunnel, and at both ends is a decryptor - your translator. This tunnel is extremely secure because despite being infinitely long, there are only two open ends. One entrance and one exit. Data is not normally accessible from the side of this virtual tunnel, and even if a breach occurs, the key to decrypt the information passing through would not have been acquired. These networks are critical for accessing sensitive data while off-site, but not exposing and losing precious data.

VPN Benefits

A virtual private network has benefits that are unsurpassable by other wireless connections. It is the most effective way to keep data safe while moving back and forth between remote locations and the office, while still maintaining flawless productivity.

Implementing a VPN

Your data security will go from being easily breached while you are on-the-go, whether you’re at a hotel, the airport, or other known hacker hotspots, to untouchable.
