Hope everyone is enjoying the courses as I am!
I’m still fairly new to Cyber Security so apologies if my questions are somewhat basic.
My employer provides me with some VPN software that I can log into the corporate network with when I work from home or on a client site or even a Costa forexample.
I get that this VPN “tunnel” is encrypted and that any data accessed or sent from A to B is safe (please anyone correct me if I’m wrong).
My youngest daughter uses a piece of software called “Hola” which has settings that allows her to appear as if she is accessing or present in a location other than where she actually is - forexample she can make out at the press of a button she is accessing the internet from the U.S. as oppose to the UK. The site she happens to be accessing is a movie/film site that without Hola she would not be able to access.
So I guess my question is that even though Hola is classed as VPN software it is very different to the VPN software my employer provides me with as it has different functiionality?
Hola seems to provide you with amongst other things anonymity as opposed to vpn software from my employer which doesn’t and also if I tried to access this movie site my daughter uses using my employers vpn software I wouldn’t get access.
Thanks for any replies in advance.
