Secure your Internet communication with VPN

In this era of fast moving technological innovations and development, one area that has lag and yet unable to match feet with the pace is online security. Though we have opportunity to go online while on the move, we don't have surety just how secure we are.

VPN or Virtual Private Network is a tool that can be used for both personal and business means. It acts by establishing a secure network, though the creation of a virtual tunnel that's encrypted over a public network, usually the internet. Business used to lease private lines to connect their office branches, even those abroad, and the amount they spend is huge, because network connectivity in a broad range is very expensive. Because of the availability of a VPN connection, companies were able to save money by getting rid of their private leased lines. The services that VPN can provide these companies are the same as the leased lines.

Aside from business or corporate use, a VPN connection can also be used personally by consumers, to be able to use applications that might not be permitted by their ISP, such as a VoIP, or which may be blocked by a firewall. With this scenario, a connection between the user and VPN provider is established, with the VPN company providing secure and private browsing through an encrypted connection, access to many blocked websites and applications, and the hiding of the user's IP address whenever visits to websites happen.

Some people are deeply concerned about the security of the communication that happens on the web, which is why the service that VPN can provide them is a plus for them. For professional hackers, accessing your data is an effortless process, especially if your system is unprotected. You can see the benefit that one can get from connecting to the web through a VPN, especially companies that needs to protect sensitive information from being leaked. By having a VPN connection, companies will no longer fear that someone will spy or eavesdrop on their employees whenever they use the services of a VoIP to make phone calls, or that data that they send through the web from being intercepted by other people.

A VPN is able to establish secure communications by using one of many protocols, which includes PPTP, IPSec, or SSL/TLS, to create a cryptographic tunnel. VPNs also use authentication methods, on top of the secure encrypted tunnels that they established.

In addition to protecting data, Secure VPN enables mobile employees to connect to their respective VPN servers by using VPN client software installed on their laptop or mobile device that uses the internet to complete the connection. Mobile employees can access printers, file servers, shared applications, and tools just as if they were physically present at the office.

To use Secure VPN, the mobile user runs client software on a laptop or mobile device, connecting through the Internet. The client program then shares a secure certificate containing shared secrets with the VPN server using public/private keys to create an encryption key. After the client connects to the VPN server and the user is authorized, all traffic travelling along the established channel is wrapped with an encrypted package that hides its contents from view.

It’s important to note that all mechanisms for establishing and maintaining Secure VPN connections are contained at the destination network. This prohibits attempts to access the company’s network from unauthorized VPN database users.
