If you work outside of the business and have information that is being sent back and forth, a Virtual Private Network is a must. VPN gives very secure connections between private networks linked through the Internet. It allows remote computers to operate as if they were on the same secure network. You can be at home and access your company's computers in the same way as if you were sitting at work. The image below shows an example of a typical VPN network configuration.

 

What is a VPN?

 

It is nearly impossible for someone to tap into or interfere with data in the VPN tunnel. If you have VPN client software on a laptop, you can have access to your company from anyplace in the world. Interactive Systems can help you easily acquire this for your home or business.
