What You'll Learn Today:

What is a Virtual Private Network (VPN)?

A network connection point which hosts your team and resources. It is secure, requiring 2-factor-authentication (2FA) or multi-factor-authentication (MFA) and data encryption so only those with lawful access can see the content.

What should a good VPN provide?

  • A secure connection
  • Servers in different countries
  • Concealed internet activity and history
  • Capacity for the expected network traffic
  • A "kill switch" in case things go wrong

Common VPN types:

  • Intranet and remote access - allow remote employees access to the secure network from afar
  • Extranet and site-to-site access - these options would connect remote offices, branches, or even external stakeholders or partners to your secure network

VPN protocols:

  • No matter the protocol type used, the goal is to keep the connection secure and encrypted. Every organization has unique needs that may make a specific protocol type more practical than another.

With secure, encrypted VPN access, you're in a virtual loop that walls off prying eyes from seeing what you're doing on your company's network even when working from afar.
