Improve your network security

The internet is a wild place. Practically every click you make is now recorded, archived, and analyzed by a computer somewhere in order to predict your consumer behavior or enforce the laws of the nation state. The moment you put a computer on the internet, it is likely to be probed for vulnerabilities by viruses and crackers hoping to conscript it into a zombie bot army.

Technology Difficulty When to use it
