A virtual private network (VPN) is a service that encrypts your data as it travels across the internet, and it’s one of the most important security solutions today. According to Statista, the number of VPN users has grown by a whopping 165% between 2017 and 2018. With cybercrime damages predicted to hit $6 trillion by 2021, this rise in usage is no surprise.
There was a time when passwords, antivirus software, and firewalls were enough to keep businesses and users safe from cyberattacks. But now that data breaches and phishing attacks are a daily occurence, implementing multilayered cybersecurity measures and best practices, including security awareness training, data backup, spam protection, encryption, penetration testing, and vulnerability assessment, are more important than ever.
