    Question Whats a good business VPN for mac?
    Hi again, looking for a VPN service for business use. I have read some recommendations on NordVPN Teams and PureVPN, so have any of you had experience on using either one for mac products? Any information is valuable

    Please explain in greater detail what you needs are. For an office environment, are you looking for people to VPN into your organization when not at the office or use VPN for general purposes. The two options you mentioned serve the latter, while the former might require a different solution.

    Thanks for answering. As most of our employees will work remotely I'd like a VPN for out of office use.

    OK, so you want people to VPN into the office when they are away from the office. First you'll need to setup a VPN server in your office. You can setup a free one with OpenVPN or go with a piece of hardware. Then you can either use software provided by the hardware vendor or the free OpenVPN client with the configuration specific to your setup. The two VPN solutions you listed are for connecting to VPN servers that those vendors are providing and NOT to VPN into your network.

    So if you want to go the hardware route: The 7 Best VPN-Enabling Devices of 2019
    The software route: VPN Software Solutions & Services For Business | OpenVPN check the business VPN section and decide how you would like to install the server.

    If any of this is getting a little out of hand and securing this stuff is important since you are opening access to your business network, you might want to engage an IT consultant to help you get setup and do things the right way.
