Virtual Private Network (VPN)
With the majority of the workforce working from home, it is absolutely crucial that you are working from a safe and secure network. The most common way to do this, is through a virtual private network, or a VPN. A VPN is a secure way of transporting data across unknown network. Technically speaking, it is an encrypted tunnel for your internet traffic that goes through an open internet (in this case, your home office) to your network at the office.You can connect through a VPN no matter what network you’re on or where you are and you will “appear” to be sitting at your office desk, as if you were actually there.
If you have a VPN set up, but your connection isn’t stable or consistent, it’s important to make sure that you have the latest VPN client.
If you have never used or set up VPN, it’s important to install and configure the VPN client properly. Your IT department or provider can walk you through the process to make sure you are set up and ready to go.
Hackers are at an all time high as remote workers moved out of their offices. They are adapting their attack methods to the COVID-19 situation and are urging end users to open a link or fill out personal information that can deploy malware. Having a VPN will encrypt network traffic and hackers won’t be able to get your passwords or other sensitive information.
