Virtual private network and cyberattack protection

You’re at your desk, working on an important project that requires a bit of internet research. You head to your favorite search engine only to be bombarded by a slew of pop-up ads. While trying to close them, you accidentally click on one that opens several websites. Annoyed, you close all of the sites and go back to work. The next day, however, you learn that your system now has a virus… and it has spread to the rest of your network. How did this happen and how can you keep it from happening again?

Cyberattacks have become a real cause of concern for businesses. Browsing the internet is only one of the many ways that clever hackers can make it into your network. Once there, all of your data can be compromised, not to mention, they may even hold your company for ransom to gain control again.

How can you protect  your network from this vulnerability? One way is through a virtual private network (VPN). But what is a VPN? It’s a secure virtual tunnel that runs over another public or private network. This gives you the ability to keep cybercriminals from seeing what your searching, targeting your computer, and gaining access to your network. VPNs can provide secure connections that let remote employees connect with each other and the applications they need.

Read on, and we’ll explain how an AT&T VPN solution works to keep your network protected.
