Virtual Private Network (VPN)

A Virtual Private Network, is an IP-based network that is constructed by using publicly accessible wires to connect nodes. For example, these systems use encryption and other security mechanisms to ensure that only authorized users can access the network and that the data cannot be intercepted. Through Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology provided by Utilities Kingston employees and authorized users can access your network quickly and securely from remote locations. Through VPN applications employees are able to work efficiently from home, suppliers and partners can be provided access to specific data thus removing distance as a barrier to effective communication.
