You Want Your Business to Rock? What a Coincidence!
When you’re on the road, protecting your business means protecting your data. Here are five ways to make hackers’ jobs a whole lot harder.
Avoid Open WI-FI

Today’s smartphones can transform into portable Wi-Fi routers. So-called “tethering” can boost security as long as you configure your mobile device with a password.
Use a VPN

If you must use public Wi-Fi, a virtual private network (VPN) can act as a secure tunnel between your device and your data’s destination, like a website or email server. If you don’t have your own company VPN, third-party VPN services (some free, some not) can provide similar protection.
Encrypt Everything
USE A VPN
In the event any of your devices – PC, tablet or smartphone –
is lost or stolen, full-disk encryption offers additional protection
for your sensitive data. Although newer devices come with encryption capabilities, it’s up to you to enable them by choosing the right settings.

USE A VPN
