You know how it goes - you're cruising along on your VPN connection when, unbeknownst to you, your VPN goes down. You try to refresh your email inbox, and it hangs. And hangs. Before you know it, you're rebooting and waiting for everything to come back up, putting a serious kink in your workflow and dinging your productivity. If only there were a way to prevent this from happening...oh, wait! Today's software promotion, VPN Watcher, does exactly that, and at a discount!
VPN Watcher monitors your VPN connection, and prevents applications from sending data to the network if your VPN connection goes down! With VPN Watcher, you'll have complete control over your applications, so by just adding an app to a list, the program will be automatically suspended when the VPN is offline, and start up when the VPN connection is established. It's simple, it's straightforward, and it's exacly what you need.
It's complete up to you whether the applications in your control list are suspended or closed completely when you lose your VPN connection. What's more, you can use this same kind of functionality to apply to any local network connection, in addition to your VPN. Plus, advanced features give you the power to have VPN Watcher check for a live VPN server at one-second intervals, so you can be up and running as soon as your VPN comes back!
