Malwarebytes Introducing a New VPN – Privacy

In recent months, due to the coronavirus outbreak interest from companies in virtual private networks (VPNs) has increased greatly. As many companies have switched to working remotely from home, the need to encrypt and protect employees’ online activities and connections to corporate resources has become vital.

Malwarebytes, a well-known antivirus software provider seeks to capitalize on this trend. In April, the company launched Malwarebytes Privacy, a VPN service that uses 200+ servers in 30+ countries protected by the 256-bit AES encryption protocol. With this big choice of servers from Malwarebytes Privacy it’s easy to find a fast server that fits your needs. Besides, Malwarebytes Privacy uses a newer and faster VPN protocol so you can get all the benefits of a VPN with less lag. While traditional VPNs can slow down your connection.

“As more and more people are utilizing home networks today, it’s increasingly imperative that we extend security to each and every person — no matter where they are or what network they are using — so that they can protect themselves and exert control over who gets their data, and for what purpose,”  commented Akshay Bhargava, Malwarebytes CPO.

Malwarebytes also announced that the new VPN offering is the first in a line of privacy products soon to be launched.

There are already dozens of premium VPNs on the market. To stand out from the crowd, Malwarebytes uses the newer WireGuard protocol in its VPN. Although somewhat untested, the protocol is basically next-generation VPN technology, and the company says its VPN should outperform other VPNs in terms of internet speeds.

According to the Malwarebytes’ website, once the device is connected to the VPN server, Privacy does not retain or log any data related to its web traffic, DNS requests, IP addresses, bandwidth or network connections.

That said, Malwarebytes hasn’t published a privacy policy for the product yet. In an email to PCMag, the antivirus vendor promised: ” We are in the process of updating our Privacy Policy to explicitly call this out.”

Malwarebytes Privacy is only available on Windows machines at present. Eventually, they will roll out VPNs for Mac, iOS, Android, and Chrome devices.
