OpenVPN: Secure and private connection to the Internet

OpenVPN is an open source software that allows you to create encrypted virtual private networks (VPNs) over the Internet. This technology allows for the security, privacy and protection of data when transmitted over unsecured networks such as the Internet. OpenVPN is based on the SSL/TLS protocol, which provides encryption of data sent between users and servers. It runs on various operating systems such as Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and others, allowing for compatibility with a variety of devices. OpenVPN is widely used in both corporate and personal use.

Corporations can use OpenVPN to create secure connections between remote workstations and a central office to provide secure access to corporate resources for remote employees. Also, users can use OpenVPN to ensure privacy and anonymity on the Internet, bypassing restrictions and blocking imposed on some websites or services. OpenVPN is one of the most popular and reliable VPN technologies, thanks to its open nature that allows for free security auditing, extensive support, and ease of configuration. This technology provides a secure and private connection between different points on the global network, allowing users to exchange data securely and confidentially.
