What is a “Virtual Private Network”?
A virtual private network (VPN) enables remote offices or users to gain secure access to their organization’s network over the public telecommunications network. This provides the benefits of remote access without the expense of dedicated leased or owned lines. VPNs work by using tunneling protocols, such as L2TP, to encrypt data at the sending end, and decrypt the data at the receiving end. This “tunnel” cannot be accessed by data that is not properly encrypted.
