Internet security has become an increasingly common concern for both consumers and businesses. Each day, millions of computers are infected with malware, viruses or ransomware.
For cyber threats such as these to reach a victim's computer, the computer must be connected to the internet. Therefore, the use of a managed virtual private network (VPN) can help prevent cyber attacks.

What is a managed VPN service exactly? To better understand this cybersecurity solution, you must first look at the basics of a VPN. A VPN is a network protocol that creates a private and encrypted network over a public network like the internet.
Normally, when you connect to the internet, your data will be exposed to man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. A hacker could break into your internet connection, essentially spying on stealing any data that you transmit or receive.
A VPN can protect against such attacks by encrypting your data. Even if a hacker accesses your internet connection, he or she won't be able to decipher the data.
Managed VPN services are cybersecurity services offered by information technology (IT) companies that involve the deployment and management of a VPN. In other words, a professional IT company is responsible for setting up, optimizing and maintaining the managed VPN service.
Managed VPN services offer a variety of benefits when compared to traditional self-managed VPN services. When the VPN service is managed by a professional IT company, that company will typically monitor all incoming and outgoing traffic for cyber threats.
If the company detects a cyber threat, it will generally block the threat.
Managed VPN services also offer insights into performance metrics. If a customer's internet speed has dropped after using a VPN, he or she can view the insights to determine the underlying cause of the slow speeds.
And once identified, the customer can then make the necessary changes to improve his or her internet speed.
