Secure your business with a Business VPN

More and more companies are victims of cybercrime. The number of cyber criminals has risen sharply in recent years. Where it used to be about individuals, today well-organized gangs are active. These gangs know exactly how to operate and who to harass.

As a company, you can no longer operate without cybersecurity. A VPN is an essential part of cybersecurity, which we will explain in this article. In addition, you will find out what the strength of the business VPN from Guardey is.

What is a business VPN?

The abbreviation VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. A corporate VPN creates a tunnel between the corporate network and the employee. For example, this could be someone who works from home, or is on a business trip. Only the employees with access to the VPN server can use this tunnel.

The VPN tunnel is end-to-end encrypted, which simply means that any intruders cannot do anything with the data if they intercept it. A business VPN scales with your company, so you can grow as an SME without compromising the security level.

How do you use Guardey’s business VPN?

Within Guardey you can choose to connect to the office. Every employee can establish the connection in a few easy steps via the menu. Then they can choose from different locations. This is very useful when someone is on a business trip and needs to use an application that is not available in that country.

Why use a VPN?

Anyone can fall victim to cybercriminals, but they especially love businesses. When cybercriminals have access to your company data, they can use it to extort you. For example, they can threaten to disclose personal data, which can cause you as an entrepreneur to get into problems with the GDPR law and customers to lose confidence in your company.

Cybercriminals can also obtain login details, such as usernames and passwords of business email addresses. They can then log in to these email addresses and send payment requests to, for example, partners. They channel the obtained money into their own bank account.

The reasons to use a business VPN:

  • Prevent cybercriminals from getting their hands on company data and misusing it to extort your business.
  • You can avoid problems with the GDPR law, this can avoid high fines.
  • Maintain a relationship of trust with your customers. A VPN can prevent their personal data from being exposed.
  • Your employees can access company data anywhere in the world without danger.
  • On a business trip, employees can use apps that are blocked in the relevant location. Think of sending business messages via WhatsApp.
  • You prevent cyber criminals from getting their hands on usernames and passwords. They can use this to send payment requests to partners, and then transfer the money to their own accounts.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is gamification?

Gamification is adding game elements into non-game environments, such as security awareness training, to increase participation and foster active learning.

What are the benefits of gamification in security awareness training?

Traditional security awareness training can often be dry and boring. With gamification, the complex subject matter is transformed into an engaging and memorable experience.

By integrating game elements such as challenges, quizzes and rewards, it incentivizes users to actively learn. This makes the training more enjoyable and fosters a sense of competition and achievement. This combination drives better retention and application of cyber security knowledge.

Why is it important to train security awareness on a weekly basis?

Research shows that up to 90% of the learnings from yearly or even quarterly training are forgotten within a few weeks. Guardey was built to keep its users aware of cyber threats 365 days a year. The game comes with short, weekly challenges that slowly builds up the user’s knowledge and eventually drives lasting behavior change.

Which topics are covered in Guardey’s security awareness game?

Guardey covers a wide array of topics to train users about all currently relevant cyber threats, put together in collaboration with ethical hackers and educationalists. The topics covered include phishing, remote work, password security, CEO fraud, ransomware, smishing, and much more.

How much time do the weekly challenges take?

Every challenge takes up to three minutes to complete.

Can I use Guardey to comply with the ISO27001, NIS2, and GDPR security awareness policies?

Yes. ISO27001, NIS2, and GDPR all require that all employees receive appropriate security awareness training. Guardey is always up-to-date with the latest cyber threats, policies, and procedures.

Is security awareness training important for all employees, or just specific roles?

Cybersecurity awareness training is crucial for all employees, not just specific roles. Every staff member can potentially be a target or an unwitting entry point for cyber attacks. Training helps create a security-focused culture and minimizes risks for the entire organization.

While certain roles may require specialized training, a foundational level of training should be accessible to everyone.
