VPNs to suit all pockets

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is an encrypted connection from your device to a remote server. It is a useful way of concealing your identity and location if your business is one that might be vulnerable to attempts to steal commercially sensitive information.

VPNs come in many price ranges and Wired has just published information on the ones it considers best-rated at three levels of pricing, from most to least expensive.

They include NordVPN, headquartered in Panama, which it describes as “general use, with blistering speeds, the latest technologies and rock-sold streaming performance”.

For those whose budget is smaller, they recommend ProtonVPN’s a 10GB-per-month free service that allows three endpoint location options. ProtonVPN is based in Switzerland, and offers a variety of subscription models to suit all budgets.

For those looking for a streaming prowess on a budget there is Surfshark, based in the British Virgin Islands. It offers a two-year subscription for £43.21.

Take a look at the full specifications for all of these on the Wired website.
