Executive Summary

VPNs create an encrypted tunnel between the computer and the internet, ensuring that data and communications are private even when users are using public networks. In terms of encryption, there are three main types: hashing, symmetric cryptography, and asymmetric cryptography. Each type of encryption has its strengths and weaknesses, but all encryption tools succeed in scrambling user data so that it becomes useless for others.

There are many VPN protocols or methods of security. PPTP, a point-to-point tunneling protocol, is one of the oldest methods of tunneling, which is still in use today but is widely considered one of the least secure methods of tunneling. Other protocols include Transport Layer Security (TLS), Secure Shell (SSH), Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP)/internet protocol security (IPSec), Internet key exchange version 2 (IKEv2), and OpenVPN. Because OpenVPN is an open-source protocol, it is among the most secure as any vulnerabilities in its programming will be discovered and fixed very quickly.

Major corporations are adopting VPN technologies because companies are more concerned with data security, thereby minimizing the cyber-attacks on business operations. These cyber-attacks include fraud, theft, and the destruction of data. Thus, a growing number of cyberattacks are propelling the growth of network protocols that allow the business to securely share its data over the network. This results in increasing demand for VPN solutions over the forecast period.

The global VPN market has been segmented based on its type, component, deployment mode, organization size, end user, and geography. Based on type, global VPN market is segmented into site-tosite VPN. Based on component, global VPN market is segmented into hardware, software, and service. Based on organization size, global VPN market is segmented into large enterprises and small & medium organizations. Based on deployment mode, global VPN market is segmented into on-premises and cloud. Based on end users’, global VPN market is segmented into individual and commercial. Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of theWorld (including South America and the Middle East & Africa).
