Many people should have got to know the abbreviation VPN in 2020: When bosses sent the office workforce to permanent home offices because of the corona pandemic. The VPN is an elegant and secure solution for accessing company data and the intranet – if it is set up correctly. And even after the pandemic, home office and the connection to the company will remain a much discussed topic.

A virtual private network is also very useful beyond home office use: You can watch series that are actually not available in Germany, protect yourself in open WiFi hotspots or simply surf the net relatively undetected. Schoolchildren and students use VPNs to use the services of the school or university and even entire company branch offices can be connected to the company network via VPN.
