Why You Need a VPN

What is a VPN?

 A VPN is a Virtual Private Network.  This routes your connection to the internet via a sever; securing your activity. Therefore, instead of the website viewing your location and computer details, it will see the VPN server.

Remote Access VPN

This setup can also be applied to remote access for when you’re working from home; allowing you to securely access the resources on your office network. This is different to a Remote Desktop connection, which allows the user to control a pc from another machine.

Why is this important?

The security protocols and encryption in place mean that your information is greater protected than just using a remote desktop connection.
