You're connecting to your company's network from home utilizing a digital security method. This security technique encrypts data before transferring it over a public network (the Internet), and your connection receives a corporate IP address much as you would if you were physically present in the workplace. What is this type of connection?


A private network connection that occurs through a public network is called a virtual private network (VPN). VPNs use tunneling, which encapsulates private data in other packets before sending it over a public network. Although a VPN is established through the Internet or other public networks, the connection logically appears to be a part of the local network. However, it will probably be a little slower than using a PC in the office. Depending on the port number being used, MAC address, or other factors, a firewall filters (blocks or accepts) packets. BitLocker is a tool for full-drive encryption. Volumes, individual files, and folders can all be encrypted using the EFS (Encrypting File System).
