Employees Head Home to Work Causing a Significant Increase in VPN Use
During this period of social distancing, our internet infrastructure is being stretched to the limit and that goes for VPN usage as well. Remote-work is required by more and more companies due to various state mandates and by federal social distancing edicts in place to limit the spread of Covid-19. VPN providers are seeing up to a doubling of their network services. Searches related to VPNs on Google are up 8 fold since January of this year. If you are searching for a VPN you need to be aware of why you need one, many do not provide the security you think you are getting.
