Businesses Need to Feature a Virtual Private Network

Businesses Need to Feature a Virtual Private Network

In today’s age of mobile work, employees are taking data outside the safety of your infrastructure and using it to be productive. This comes with the unfortunate side-effect of the data being more at risk than ever before. Thankfully, modern technology provides solutions to this dilemma--chief among them being the virtual private network, or VPN.

The modern work environment is a scary place, and you never know when someone is looking. Hackers have used spyware for ages to lurk on a device and collect data for various purposes, but the threat needs to be directly installed on the device in order for this to work. It doesn’t work when the data is most vulnerable--while it’s in transit. This is the issue that created the need for a virtual private network.

A virtual private network is an encrypted network that gives you a secure way of connecting to your organization’s in-house infrastructure. In this case, the encryption protects your data by scrambling it into an undecipherable mess of characters while it’s in transit. The only way that anyone can unscramble the data is by having the decryption key that goes with the encrypted message. In essence, only those authorized by your organization can make heads or tails of the data. Otherwise, it’s just a jumble of something useless to hackers.

This is why a virtual private network is so important to the security of your business. Often times data can be intercepted while it’s in transit to or from a device, placing it at risk. With the VPN, the tunnel between your infrastructure and the receiving device is a bit more opaque, meaning that it’s not as easy to see the true data, as it will be obscured and unreadable should it be stolen by anyone who doesn’t have the encryption key.

VPNs are useful for any business correspondence where sensitive or proprietary information is sent over an unsecured Internet connection. This provides the security needed to send files and data when being asked to connect to wireless or other Internet connections that may be risky.

CoreTech can help you implement the right VPN for your business. To learn more, reach out to us at (270) 282-4926.
