Many Internet users have become aware of the VPN business through sponsored YouTube videos. There is, however, a minimal difference between the VPN software used in private life and the software that companies use to encrypt the work processes of their home office employees.
So-called YouTubers advertise VPN services such as NordVPN as part of a sponsored video. The subscription offered by service providers provides customers with virtual private networks that encrypt their behavior on the network. When apps are used privately on smartphones, personal data is stored on the servers of these app providers. Hackers can access this sensitive data if an app offers insufficient encryption to protect it from hacker attacks. Furthermore, public WLAN connections are particularly vulnerable. VPN protects a user’s Internet connection by sending encrypted personal data to its own server.
In times of the Corona pandemic, VPN plays a particularly important and indispensable role in companies. Here, employees who are stationed at home during the conversion use the private communication network to gain access to the company network. They log in to their company headquarters via VPN in their home office using their Internet connection. This means that by using an encrypted network, various tasks can be carried out securely within the employee’s own four walls.
According to a report by ComputerWeekly.com, the use of virtual private business networks has increased by 165 percent since the outbreak of Corona. VPN service provider NordVPN also highlights a nearly 600 percent increase in total revenue.
In summary, both the private and business use of VPN services are now indispensable. Regardless of whether this service is used on the computer or even on the smartphone, it offers an encrypted IP connection, which makes it enormously difficult for government organizations and hackers to access the behavior of the customer on the Internet or an employee on the company network. This provides a secure surfing experience on the World Wide Web and a conventional way for employees of various companies to carry out their activities safely from the Corona at home.
