Steps for Installing a VPN Program

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, which is a technology for establishing computer network connections used to access the internet or internal organizational networks without facing the risk of data inspection from external sources. The use of VPN helps encrypt data sent to websites or networks being connected to, thus preventing hackers or malicious entities from accessing users' data and privacy. Additionally, a VPN can also serve as a tool to bypass content restrictions or blocks imposed externally on users, granting them access to content that might otherwise be restricted or blocked.


Here is how to install a VPN program

Step 1: You can download the Ivanti program from this webpage: https://ssru.ac.th/vpn.php Choose the operating system you need; options include Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.
