Thwarting the great firewall

If you regularly travel to China you'll know accessing many websites can be tricky. A VPN is one way to ensure you can still communicate.

When travelling overseas business executives need to stay connected to their email accounts, keep track of industry news and use social media. But if you're travelling to China, Saudi Arabia or another authoritarian regime, you'll need a virtual private network (VPN) to bypass state censorship restrictions which hinder accessing parts of the internet.

If you haven’t arranged reliable primary and backup VPN access for use during the trip then it's likely you won’t be able to communicate effectively.
