VPN (Virtual Private Network)

A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, is a private network of computers that’s at least partially connected by public phone lines. A good example would be a private office LAN that allows users to log in remotely over the Internet (an open, public system).

VPNs use encryption and secure protocols like PPTP to ensure that data transmissions are not intercepted by unauthorized parties.
