The use of remote access technologies like RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) and VPN Services (Virtual Private Network) has skyrocketed 41% and 33%, respectively, since the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The move comes as a large number of workers were asked to work from home. According to VPN Services, the number of VPN related search on the net has doubled since March 2020.
Many companies have their own Virtual Private Network, to protect their data from cybercriminals. Failing in the network protection can result in considerable losses for companies who are asked ransom from cybercriminals. That’s why many home workers are asked to use VPN services when working online.
