Can a VPN protect a company from a backdoor attack?
Asked 6 months ago
Hi. I am one of the Directors of a medium-sized HR company. Since the company stores a lot of sensitive data about potential employees, I want to ensure that the network is as protected as possible from cyber attackers. From what I understand, a backdoor attack is one of the most dangerous types of cyber attacks due to the fact that it provides hackers with high level access in a network. Therefore, I am looking for ways to prevent this type of attack. Anyone know if a VPN provides protection against backdoor attacks? TYIA.

A backdoor is a type of secret entryway that allows an intruder to access your system without your knowledge. Backdoors are easy to set up and hard to detect, and they are often used by law enforcement or other organizations to gain access to systems or data.
A VPN is a tool that encrypts all of the data that passes through it so that no one can view what you're doing online—including hackers trying to steal your information. The encryption ensures that even if someone could get into your computer through a backdoor, they wouldn't be able to see anything about your browsing habits or other activities on the internet.
