PCWorld: Use AlwaysVPN To Stay Data Safe At Wi-Fi Hotpsots

The Firesheep Firefox browser plugin that lets even unskilled hackers steal your identity when you’re surfing the net at hotspots is just one reason why your employees need to use a VPN when connecting to public Wi-Fi services. AnyDVD, an on-demand service, is one good option.

“You’ve heard about the Firesheep Firefox add-in that lets someone with virtually no hacking experience steal your identity when you visit a number of Web sites, including Facebook. Here’s more bad news: Firesheep is far from the only privacy danger out there. There are plenty of powerful tools that hackers can use to steal private information from you not just specific Web sites, but wherever you are on the Web, or when you use other Internet services, such as client-based e-mail and instant messaging. The for-pay AlwaysVPN (pricing varies with bandwidth) does a great job of keeping you safe no matter what you do and where you go on the Internet.

AlwaysVPN makes it easy to protect yourself with a virtual private network when you use the Internet.AlwaysVPN uses Virtual Private Networking technology to encrypt all of your communications, and it’s especially useful for those who connect at public Wi-Fi hot spots, where all communications are in the open and not encrypted.”
