With technology evolving every day and new/improved IT services being offered to customers, it becomes confusing to know which service/offering is right for business compared to other. One such scenario is in case of service offering between VPN and Proxy. While both a proxy and VPN service have a lot of commonality amongst them, they differ significantly.
The main purpose of using both proxies and VPN services is to hide the IP Address of the users or to prevent tracking bodies and individuals from identifying their location
Both Proxy and VPN connect to remote system for communication and also both forward traffic on behalf of a client.
