What is a Virtual Private Network?
A virtual private network, or VPN for short, is an internal, private network of computers that are connected using the internet. Businesses often require a private VPN service to create a secure, private virtual space that some or all employees can access and modify within the company. If your business has several computers that need access to the same files across the network, you will likely wish to secure that data using a VPN. VPN providers like RealmConnect perform a network assessment for your business and then install a custom solution according to the needs of your business.
How does it work?
Once we have analyzed your network and installed a VPN according to your requirements, you can connect to the internet and initiate a VPN connection to the source of the data whether it is a mobile connection or a site to site VPN connection. RealmConnect installs networking components that act as a gateway to ensure that all connections are authenticated using a severely encrypted technology scheme. These sophisticated virtual private networks ensure that your data is better protected.
How secure is a VPN?
The security of your virtual private network depends on the level of security that you choose to implement. There are different levels of common features varying in degrees of security, including IP security, layer 2 tunneling protocol (L2TP), secure sockets layer (SSL), point-to-point tunneling protocol (PPTP), and more. Ask us about the options that we can offer you so that we can work together to choose the right amount of security for your data network.
Why do I need a private VPN service?
No matter what size your business is, if you have an internal network of computers with sensitive information, you will need to secure that information with a VPN. Virtual private networking will ensure that all the data you send both externally and internally is safely encrypted and inaccessible to unwanted viewers. This also secures your data when you or a trusted employee accesses it from another location, such as at home or on the road. When it comes to the data on your network, a private VPN service can eliminate potential security risks for yourself and your employees no matter where you are. When it comes to your business, a VPN is an absolute minimum you can do when it comes to protecting yourself, your employees, and your customers.
