Always On VPN

Always On VPN is live!

Always On VPN ensures a VPN connection is used to access the internet. If the VPN connection drops, the device is automatically disconnected from the internet until the VPN connection is restored.

Here’s why Always On VPN is a must to have:

  • It secures remote workers and those employees who travel frequently and connect to unsecured networks.
  • It prevents any potential leaks and keeps company resources and personal information secure.
