Virtual Private Networks "VPN's" is a relatively new technology that allows
for a business to create a "Virtual" computer network between two or more
locations. The VPN allows for the secure sharing of databases, files,
folders as well as telephone connections. VPN's are becoming very popular
because there are no ongoing monthly expenses associated with a VPN and
they are a secure way for remote offices to securely access user data.
Many business owners are creating these "virtual networks" between their
business and home offices in order to allow the ability to efficiently
work from home. Parents are also very fond of this feature since they
can now stay home with their children while staying caught up with their
responsibilities at the office. This virtual connection to the office
means that business owners are only a few keystrokes away from all of
their critical data.
