Having a VPN network can have many advantages. However, it is important to know how to choose the right one for your needs.

There are many reasons to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and first of all the desire to strengthen the security of communications.

There are many solutions on the market, but venturing into it blindly can be risky and a source of disappointment. A VPN comparator can help you find the service that best suits your needs.

A VPN can provide a secure channel with end-to-end encrypted communications between the corporate server and a remote device, reducing the risk of interception and/or information passing through insecure servers.

The confinements associated with the global pandemic have given a strong boost to the interest in VPNs for telecommuting, but it can also be useful to protect oneself when using a public WiFi access point.

It can also be a way to hide one's identity and where one comes from to access certain types of services, for example to bypass geographic filtering.

From security to stealth internet surfing

Different criteria must be taken into account, such as the level of encryption and security criteria provided (such as log management), the speed obtained according to the geographical areas served, the number of proxy servers available or the number of simultaneous connections allowed.

These elements will also depend on what the user is looking for, from the security of the communications to theanonymized use beyond the IP change associated with the servers used.

Finally, the cost of the subscription and the compatibility of the VPN solution with different platforms will be points to keep in mind, knowing that free solutions often include many constraints (and random security) while the most expensive VPNs are not always the most suitable, except for very specific needs.
