So, a VPN (a virtual private network ) is a technology that provides secure communication through a network closed from external access in the presence of the high-speed Internet.
Such a network connection of geographically distant computers uses a point-to-point connection (computer-to-computer).
Scientifically, this connection method is called a VPN tunnel (or tunnel protocol). You can connect to such a tunnel if you have a computer with any operating system into which VPN Client is installed and activated.
VPN allows you to connect to almost any device: router, computer, smartphone, or even some TVs and receive encrypted information from them.
A VPN connection is necessary for:
1. Downloading applications, in the case, when the IP address is located in another regional zone of the country;
2. Anonymous work on the Internet;
3. Safe work in a corporate environment using shared communications;
4. Creating a secure channel and avoiding hacker attacks.
The setup takes only a couple of minutes after order confirmation.
