People have become accustomed to using their mobile devices for the dual purposes of business and leisure. Yet, research shows when they travel they don’t really give the data on their devices a second thought. Instead they are much more likely to care about whether the hotel or apartment they are staying at has good Wi-Fi access. This reliance on public Wi-Fi on holiday risks exposing any sensitive business information on personal devices to hackers and snoopers. For this reason, it is best to always take your VPN technology with you on holiday to encrypt all Internet communications while away.
President Donald Trump’s recent decision to overturn rules set by the Obama administration to stop Internet service providers (ISPs) from selling everyone’s browsing data to advertisers and other third parties has re-opened the Internet privacy debate. The development adds to existing concerns about the potential for hackers to intercept sensitive data when communicating with the office from home or out on the road. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides an encrypted connection for remote network access. This is a very effective way for businesses and individuals to prevent outsiders from intercepting sensitive data. There are a number of key business benefits for VPN.
