When working remotely or traveling, best practice for securing data across the internet is use of a business-grade firewall with a gateway VPN (Virtual Private Network) that enables encrypted internet connection from anywhere in the world!
A next generation gateway VPN allows remote users internet access by routing connectivity through your secured network firewall. As an additional cybersecurity safeguard, remote user traffic is configured to pass within, but separate from, local network activity.
Be aware that a VPN host service, which may appear as an alternate option, carries inherent risks in data handling & storage as well as necessitates Vendor Risk Management.
Take ownership of your own gateway VPN!
