What Is a Virtual Private Network (VPN)

With the rise of Virtual Private Networks, or VPNs, businesses have had to adjust their IT infrastructure so that they can accommodate these new systems. An obvious example is the use of WAN connection in a private network set up for a small business. Most small companies need to be able to connect to the Internet from anywhere in the world, but they also need to be able to connect to each other using a secure connection, and VPN is the key. It does not matter what kind of company you are running; a VPN can be configured to allow data to be exchanged between two locations without using the public Internet.

Tuttotek has developed a technology called WAN Split VPN, which allows a business to set up its own private network within a public network. The advantage is that employees do not need to worry about their data being compromised, because it is protected by another layer of security. Each employee’s personal computer is tied into a separate private network with a password, making it impossible for anyone outside the company to gain access to this information. A WAN Split VPN connection is much more secure than a simple Local Area Connection, or LAN, which means that an employee does not have to share his connection with other people on the Internet, making it even more secure.

In order to get a VPN set up, your company will first need to sign up for a service from a provider, which usually involves paying a monthly fee. This provider will then create a virtual local network for your business to connect to. You can then install your company’s VPN software on the VPN server, making it possible for you to manage your network in the same way that you would if you were using a dedicated public network.
