With the increasing popularity of the digital world, people are becoming more and more dependent on their existence. It all started off as a platform for sending emails over the Internet but now has become a world of its own. From ordering food to making payments for the goods you purchased, it seems like we are using the online platform for everything. Companies are also using the internet to promote their product as opposed to signboards we used to see on every street. The bad guys have also taking a keen interest and plotting and planning to rob someone online as they do in the real world and like security companies that provides you with guards and cameras for your office and house, there are people working hard behind the scene to offer you protection from cybercriminals like VPN.

Virtual private network or VPN offers secure tunnel, with multi-layer security features, that connects you with another network on the internet. The tunnel in simple words is a passage or a connection through which your data or traffic travels from one network to another. If proper security measures are not in place before sharing information or transferring data into the digital world, you can be a victim of cybercriminals.

Benefits of using VPN

With its firewall, malware and data encryption technology, VPN is becoming an increasingly popular tool for protection against cyber-crimes. VPN ensures that it transmits all important files and data via an encrypted channel online so that hackers cannot steal anything from you. Encryption converts your data into codes, for example, converting your credit card details into hash code, it displays information into alphanumeric codes, making it impossible for hackers to know what is being sent. CASVPN, which is among the best VPN’s, uses a 256-bit AES encryption that is part of security standards of multinational companies and financial houses to protect their confidential data.

Malware and VPN

A Malware is malicious software that can be present in apps, files or websites that we download. VPN with their Malware protection mechanism sniffs the danger and dumps them out. Their technology works as the guard that stops any software that can harm your system or steal your information, keeping you safe and tension free. There are different malware such as viruses, Trojan horses, Spyware, Adware, Ransomware and worms.

They have different purposes like Spyware’s intention is to spy on all the activities you perform online. In some country, governments try to spy on your activities giving no respect to your privacy. In the same way, Adware also tracks your activities and sell them to third parties such as advertising companies which then export your data to retailers. Ransomware after stealing your data encrypts them and then ask you for money in return to giving access to your data again. Some VPNs have Ad- Blockers that not only protects you from watching awful ads and embedded viruses that it may carry but also discourages this malpractice used by some companies.

VPN and the world:

VPN has the feature that can hide your IP address and location through its virtual server mechanism. CASVPN has a large network with spreading across 57 countries around the world, along with 150+ locations to choose from. You can connect to any server you want and VPN will hide your IP address and location with the remote server you have selected. This makes you anonymous to the world and protects you from Spyware and Adware.

Through VPN you can also unblock content that is not accessible in your region, for example, UAE has blocked WhatsApp, by using CASVPN you can use WhatsApp, all by connecting to VPN server outside UAE.

Security and Privacy come with a price these days and that is what these VPN Service providers are charging you for, with all the protection and above-described advantages, it is not a cost but investment made for your security and privacy.
