What is a VPN

A VPN is a service that both encrypts your data and hides your IP address by bouncing your network activity through a secure chain to another server or your company server. This obscures your online identity, even on public Wi-Fi networks, so you can browse the internet safely, and securely. It can also allow you to access network drives remotely and keep the hybrid workspace secure.

Virtual private networks or VPN’s number 1 goal is to keep your information safe. Most paid VPN’s do this by encrypting data to mask your traffic along with giving off a public IP to further hide your identity from attackers.

Overall VPNs are just one part of building a secure computing environment. Viener4Gates has utilized Watchguard VPNs in everything from single user systems to multi-thousand user systems.
