With a lot of technology tools and applications at our disposal, sometimes the alerts, notifications, updates and news we receive can feel like overload. And with many of us increasingly using some of the same devices for personal and work use, this can mean being diverted from our lives outside work by work-related messages and information, and the converse.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows us to create a secure connection from home to our University network over the Internet. It is a way for us to protect sensitive data and provide us with privacy in the work that we do because it encrypts what we send and receive.
Working offsite? You don’t have to miss calls to your work number: you can have them forwarded to an external number.
