By using a VPN for remote connections, small businesses build in a layer of security they otherwise may not have. The VPN for remote business networking keeps sensitive information private. It’s an added safety measure if you already work on a secure network, but it’s critical to use VPNs over open public Wi-Fi connections such as coffee shops, hotels and airports.
But today’s VPN solutions can be lengthy and tedious to configure, making it hard to implement in small businesses that do not have any IT expertise.
