Your employer requires all mobile devices have a VPN client installed. The VPN client should be enabled whenever public or otherwise untrusted wireless networks are used. What is the benefit of using a VPN?

  • VPNs are a client only application that scans network traffic for possible viruses and worms
  • VPNs upgrade any HTTP traffic to HTTPS automatically
  • VPNs provide a packet scanning service that ensures the untrusted wireless network is safe to use
  • VPNs provide an encrypted tunnel that protects data transmitted wireless from being read by malicious actors
