Teleworking and VPN: the top 7 most frequently asked questions (webinar)

Teleworking is one of the measures put in place to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Thus, giving your employees outside access to your company resources is not something to take lightly. Pascal Allard explains why in the first of a series of webinars, entitled CONNECTED.

The question we get the most often is: 

“Is a VPN secure? How can I make sure I’m protected? Are there ways to increase security?” 

By default, a VPN solution encrypts data between users (who might be working from home) and your remote network (your office). Thus, if an ill-intentioned person intercepts the data accessed via VPN (emails, voice, etc.), they will be coded and very difficult to exploit. Evidently, coding levels vary by VPN solutions. 

However, a VPN solution cannot protect against a user’s behaviour, including the websites they visit or the apps they choose to download or install.  

As such, the use of a security plug-in affixed directly to a user’s PC will offer extra protection, limiting that user’s possible usage (depending on a company’s work policy). The extension needs to be activated in order to allow the user to connect to the Internet or another remote network. By activating the extension, all content that can be accessed via the user’s computer will first be filtered by the VPN, according to the company’s implemented work policy.
