Correct Answer - Option 2 : It is a computer network across a public internet that provides users access to their organization's network while maintaining the security of the information transmitted

The correct answer is Option 3.

  •  Virtual Private Network
    • It is an encrypted connection over the Internet from a device to a network.
    • It creates a private network to separate the user’s traffic from the rest of a public or shared network.
    • The encrypted connection helps ensure that sensitive data is safely transmitted.
    • A VPN extends a corporate network through encrypted connections made over the Internet. Because the traffic is encrypted between the device and the network, traffic remains private as it travels.
    • A VPN hides your IP address by letting the network redirect it through a specially configured remote server run by a VPN host.
  • A remote worker, who may be working from home, could need to connect to their company’s internet or restricted applications by using VPN.
