Internet Security Solutions

In times of today when security threats are increasing every day, every computer or system that has been used to connect to the internet is vulnerable for the prying eyes.

The best way to protect yourself on the internet is the use of a virtual private network. By using a VPN, the user is making sure that all of their information is encrypted and is being shared across a safe channel. And even if the prying eyes are able to detect the communication, they would not be able to access the data as it can only be encrypted or decrypted at the either end of a tunnel. The tunnel is sort of like a private channel that has been established specifically for this communication and will not be valid for any other communication.

The fourth type of internet security solution is the usage of a web proxy. An open IP address is set in your browser setting and all the activity that is taking place on the internet is routed through that IP address. The main purpose of this solution is to hide your IP address. However, not all open IP addresses are able to do that. The usage of such solution is advised with caution as there can be many hackers who use an open proxy to get their hands on information you would not have liked to share. There can also be web based redirectors which allow users access to a certain website through.
