    Cyber Security Threat Prevention

    In the modern world of computer viruses, malware, spyware, keyloggers, trojans, and packet snippers you can never be too careful when it comes to securing your information. Think about how many times a day you put in passwords, credit card number or any personal data into your computer or smartphone this information needs to be kept safe. Anytime you are going to put any sensitive data into your computer or smartphone I recommend using a VPN. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and is a network that is constructed using the Internet to connect to a private network, using encryption and other security mechanisms to ensure that only authorized users can access the network and that the data cannot be intercepted. This type of network is designed to provide a secure, encrypted tunnel in which to transmit the data between the remote user and the connected network. When you are connected to a VPN anything you send over the VPN is encrypted even if the site you are working on sends passwords without encryption the VPN protects you by having the isolated secure encrypted tunnel. A VPN is a must especially if you are using your phone or computer on any type of free Wi-Fi offerings like at a Starbucks or McDonalds. Hackers can sit on these free networks and just sniff for passwords or sensitive data that’s not encrypted the use that data to reverse engineer a way to get your information. A VPN can be used as well for geographical locations for example if you connect to a VPN say in Germany and you are in America you will get the German version of Google and Facebook. This comes especially in handy when you want to view content on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon that is not available in...

  • VPN or Virtual Private Network is a device which connects the server of your choice by encrypting data.

So it is important to use the best VPN router to obtain effective results. In this post, check out the six simple but useful tips to boost the speed of VPN. Check the Speed of Your Internet The first thing you should do is to check the speed of your internet connection.

Try to get it fixed first and then try to boost the speed of your VPN connection. Choose the Right Server Location It is important to choose the right server location. For instance, if your server is located in Dallas then the data will travel the fastest path and returns by the fastest path resulting in the latency of may be 15 milliseconds. But when you’re connected to the VPN in London then the data will travel to London then Dallas and again to London. These results in the loss say 150 milliseconds and thus the speed gets reduced. Actionable Tip- It is recommended to choose the VPN location closest to the final destination. This helps to send the data quickly and boost the speed.

    Best VPN For Linux Ubuntu & Fedora

    Security issues on the internet can arise from many different sides. Though we often believe that viruses and other forms of malware are greatest threats that World Wide Web has to offer, situation is actually a lot more complicated than that. Our security is also challenged by the level of surveillance on the web, because practically our every step can be easily monitored, and in that monitoring helps everything – from your browser to your operating system. This is the reason why more and more people opt out for using alternative versions of operating systems, and so far Linux has proven to be at the very top. Fedora and Ubuntu are thus far the best offspring of Linux family, which is why security-conscious internet users often choose one of them as their OS. However, with alternative operating systems come compatibility issues that need to be considered, because you’ll face some difficulty when wanting to install different apps and plugins. Further more, if you strive to be as protected as possible on the web, then getting a VPN to match your alternative OS might be a good idea, because that way you’ll cover every aspect of your security. Seeing that compatibility problems stretch over VPN apps as well, here are some of them that will fit like a glove with your OS.
