VPN not only helps you to access your work machine back in the office, it can also provide consumers more secure Internet browsing or virtual LANs. Best of all, there are some good free choices available, too.
Not everyone needs enterprise-level VPN. Some people just want to be able to connect to their work machine without a lot of hassle. This may apply even more to those who work in small companies with little or no IT support. Others may just want to set up a secure, encrypted tunnel between two or more computer in order to collaborate or host PC game-playing sessions with friends. These VPN products are a bit different from remote control and access products like Team Viewer or GoToMy PC,which are designed more for accessing a single machine's files, or for desktop sharing. Two good examples are LogMeIn's Hamachi and Comodo Unite, which allow you to connect multiple computers securely.
If you are just looking for a way to secure your connection while browsing the Internet, check out our Best Free VPN Services. These services act as an anonymizer, changing your IP address so no one can track your activity, but also provides an encrypted tunnel for sensitive data. It's good additional security to have in place when connecting to the Internet at public hotspots.
