Overview

Businesses today are looking ways to streamline their businesses as they go through globalization. It is not common that most businesses which exist today are found in every part of the country across the globe. As businesses go through intense expansion, starting from a single unit they are constantly expanding from one country to another, somehow the management realized the complexity of the command chain. Budget allocated to every business unit for expansion and operation silently go wasted without seeing productivity from the unit. Budgets are spent on failing projects due to poor management and for this most giant corporate will go through restructuring in order to streamline their businesses again. Businesses constantly restructure their corporate structure to shave off unnecessary cost and burden knowing that restructuring will too incur cost for employee compensation.

Business allocate huge amount of budget in order to maintain these network which most of time, the network transfer is slow and not reliable. Virtual Private Networks employs tight security which encrypts the packets sent out to the Internet hence slowing down the network.
