Who doesn’t like working from the local coffee shop, from an AirBnB overlooking the beach or the comfort of their couch. With more companies offering remote work as an part- to full-time option, there is a growing concern by owners about preventing cyber threats when employees access their system.

Think about it, if you’re hanging out at a coffee shop and using a public Wi-Fi to access your company’s system, then you are, in a sense, opening the door to potential hacks without using any security measures. That’s why more companies are implementing the use of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to create a secure online tunnel between the servers/systems and employees.

VPNs can be used by any size of company, even a solopreneur, and the benefits are quite attractive. By using a VPN, it enables employees from anywhere in the world to securely access a central network, it requires credentials to log in, increases privacy, and can provide a secure and encrypted communication line to prevent against cyber threats.

You don’t have to wait for your company to implement this security measure. One VPN for solopreneurs is the ZenMate. It is one of the fastest-growing, top-rated VPNs, used by over 41 million users and won Europas Award for Best Security/Private Startup. It uses top-level encryption to keep your passwords and private information safe.
