What Is a VPN?
VPN means Virtual Private Network.
A Virtual Private Network allows you to access all your resources through an encrypted channel, securely and easily.
What Can I Do With It?
A VPN lets you access Intranet Websites, unrestricted (or restricted) Internet, Shared Printers, Network Storage, Shared Folders, Restricted Access Servers, Access to computers inside your network, and basically everything you can do when you're physically connected to your network.
Why would I need a VPN?
Usually networks are behind a Firewall (protection from external access) or behind a NAT (Network Address Translation) that per design doesn't allow direct access to resources behind the NAT or the Firewall.
A VPN Allows you to access those resources by traversing through the Firewall or NAT.
Have you ever felt affraid that somebody could intercept your sensitive information while sending it through the internet?
You know that feeling when you're typing your username and password and feel affraid someone could be listening and dissecting the information you're sending?
VPN uses encryption technology to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks, your information will be secured from end to end while inside the VPN.
You can directly connect two different and distant networks (like separate offices or branches, even on different cities or countries) and access them as if they were directly connected to you local network, share folders and everything, just as easy as connecting to the PC next door.
On travel? No problem, When your laptop is set up, you have access to your VPN from ANYWHERE in the world.
