What is a VPN solution?

If you need to protect your IP address or even what you search or visit on the Internet, a VPN can become the ideal tool, especially when connecting from, for example, a public Wi-Fi network, where anyone could have access to the navigation and personal data.

A good solution should demonstrate features, such as hide the IP address, encrypt data, encapsulate internet traffic usage, etc.

There are various types of VPNs; these include Internal VPN, which operates within the same local area network (LAN), Point to Point, which attempts to eliminate conventional point-to-point connections, and Remote Access, which provides access similar to that of being inside the local network.
