A virtual private network (VPN) is a network that is constructed using public wires — usually the Internet — to connect remote users or regional offices to a company's private, internal network.
UW-Parkside’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows you to securely connect to UWP resources from home or abroad. UWP uses the GlobalProtect application as its VPN. The VPN provides a user-friendly way to connect to UWP resources, protecting the data that is traveling to and from your computer.
