Can a VPN be used to prevent a pretexting attack?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi there. I have heard recently that pretexting attacks present a huge danger to businesses, and thus I am looking for ways to prevent my staff members from becoming victims to one of these attacks. This is particularly with regard to email pretexting attacks which seem easy to be trapped by. Does anyone know if using a VPN is suitable for the purposes of preventing these types of attacks? Thanks in advance.

A VPN encrypts all data between your computer and the Internet Service Provider (ISP). When you connect with a VPN, your ISP sees only one IP address—the one assigned by your VPN provider. Your connection looks like it's coming from another location than where it really is. This prevents ISPs from seeing where you are or what websites you're visiting.
