What is a VPN?
There seems to be a million acronyms thrown around these days and VPN usage is on the rise. So, what is a VPN? A VPN is a Virtual Private Network. Think of it like operating inside the filling of a Jelly donut. Even though you may be in the nice white neat box with all the other donuts, your little enclosure blocks that tasty lemon filling from blending with the maple bars or bear claws (the Internet). A VPN gives business users a practical and pretty reliable way to enclose themselves while they are online, sheltering their work from the general public.
