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.

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.
With over one billion active users worldwide, Apple continues to offer the most diverse product line from Apple Watches to Macs, to iPads and iPhones. As Apple’s 10 year anniversary approaches in September, big plans are in store for iOS 11 to bring new features to the iPhone and iPad this fall. While updates to the mobile operating system will enhance functionality, they will also bring additional security vulnerabilities into play that can expose personal data if it is not protected with proper security measures. For companies that have implemented a BYOD environment, iPhones and iPads must be monitored and secured with virtual private networks (VPNs) to avoid potential security breaches.
