A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a secured network that only authorised people can access with a special password. Many corporate people use a VPN to stay in contact with their work environment when working from home or travelling. The sophisticated operating system of the BlackBerry allows you to create various VPN profiles to connect to different corporate VPN networks by enabling the Wi-Fi services on the BlackBerry. To successfully use this secure service, the corporation you want to connect with must also have a enterprise Wi-Fi network that uses a VPN.
