VPN | Virtual Private Network
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a network service that allows you to establish a secure connection to a remote network. It is used to protect the privacy and security of Internet users by hiding the identity and location of users and encrypting traffic.

There are many reasons why you need a VPN. Some possible reasons are:

Protection from hackers: If you use public WLAN hotspots, hackers may try to access your personal data. A VPN helps by encrypting traffic, making it harder for hackers to gain access.
Protection from surveillance: A VPN can prevent your ISP or other third parties from following your online activities.
Access to blocked content: In some countries, certain websites and services are blocked. With a VPN, you can bypass these restrictions and access the content you want.
Secure connections for businesses: Companies often use VPNs to establish secure connections for employees working from home or on the road.

Overall, a VPN provides an extra layer of security and privacy for Internet users and can be useful in various scenarios.

BITS experts have used a VPN in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
