How Exactly Can a VPN Benefit Your Business?

The purpose of your company’s information technology is to create, access, and share the data that your business needs to get the job done. One challenge that stems from exchanging such valuable information is the chance of it getting intercepted by the prying eyes on the Internet. Taking advantage of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the best way to safeguard your organization from this risk.


Take, for example, these two common scenarios where having a secure portal to access your files can improve operations:

Scenario 1: Your company has multiple locations. In a multi-site situation such as this, you’re going to want to consolidate your infrastructure, data, and all of your IT efforts. By utilizing a VPN, all of your staff from your various locations can access all of your data in real time via one system that you control.

Scenario 2: Your business is taking advantage of a remote workforce with employees attending trade shows, working on-site with clients, and working from home. When utilizing a remote workforce, you’re going to want to ensure that your data isn’t haphazardly spread across multiple computers that are unsecured. Also, you want to minimize the number of software licenses required for your remote workforce. If you don’t have a solution that consolidates your applications onto one computer, then you’ll end up paying for a software license for each device, which can really add up.

Concerning these pain points experienced by remote workers, a VPN offers the perfect solution. VPN offers remote workers a secure portal to access their company’s network via the Internet. Plus, VPN assures that your data, applications, and user policies are all accessed securely, and left intact on your network when your team is logged off.

How does VPN work? With just a couple of clicks, users can log into your company’s network from virtually anywhere in order to access the files they need to get the job done.

For any business that exchanges sensitive information over a network, procuring a secure connection is critical to your success. If your organization doesn’t properly secure the connection, you could be putting sensitive data at risk. Data is usually at its most vulnerable when it’s traveling from one location to another. A VPN removes this handicap by encrypting data while it’s moving between locations. This prevents hackers from stealing it while it’s moving about.

Here are some of the best reasons to be using a VPN for your business’s network:

  • Secure connections to sensitive data: A VPN secures the connection between your device (the endpoint) and your organization’s network, allowing for the encrypted data to safely reach its destination without incident. Even if hackers do manage to steal anything, it will be encrypted and unreadable, making it a waste of time for the hacker.
  • Role-based user access: One of the best things that a VPN allows for is role-based user access, where data flow is restricted on a per-user basis. This means that your business can prevent employees from accessing information that they shouldn’t be accessing. For example, the average employee doesn’t need access to personal employee information or client payment information. This data should be restricted to only your human resources or accounting department. This reduces the chance of data leakage by limiting your data’s exposure to potential threats.
  • Remote access to critical data: VPNs are virtual networks, and as such, they can be accessed anywhere, anytime, on an approved device. This helps to keep your employees connected, even when they’re out of the office or on a business trip.
