Our advice to SMEs before using a VPN, is to ensure the companies have both antivirus and firewall protection on all company hardware. On top of that, to employ a security-as-a-service or detection monitoring to identify and stop malicious attack on the network before damage occurs.

1) Security policy – with who has access to the network, how much access and what type of devices can connect to the network. Also to look into idle connection time, processes in case of a breach.

2) Connected devices on VPN – only company issued hardware can connect to the internal corporate network. Users should not be allowed to load any type of software on their device without formal administrator approval. This ensures against a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.

We have Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection, which provides:-
  • Protection on chats, video calls and bank details from hackers with military-grade encryption
  • Hide the IP address to avoid the web browser tracker, not even the ISP can track
