Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are computer networks in which users are connected to the network across open Internet connections. A VPN makes use of secure connection features and decentralized authentication methods in order to create a network that's both efficient and secure. VPNs are popular for use by company employees who must travel while requiring access to network resources.
