IDG Contributor Network: 5 ways your company can benefit from using a VPN

Is your company using a VPN — or just letting it all hang out?

A VPN, or a virtual private network, is a technology that lets you create a secure network connection while using a public network. Using one might seem like something as obvious as “the internet” as a tool that businesses should have in the bag.

And with security issues like Wi-Fi spoofing, Firesheep and more, it’s more important than ever to keep your online activity safeguarded. Plus, with telecommuting and virtual offices becoming more and more mainstream, employees are taking care of business from just about every corner of the world, and often relying on unsecured public networks in the process.

How often are you or one of your employees working from a coffee shop, taking advantage of the airport’s free Wi-Fi, or otherwise using an unsecured connection to upload files? Working from a cafe has become synonymous with the modern-day grind, but it can come at a big cost.
