VyprVPN for Business to Encrypt Canonical's Remote Workers' Internet Connections

Employees on the Go at the Company Behind Ubuntu Use VyprVPN for Added Security and Privacy While Collaborating With Colleagues

MEGGEN, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/14 -- Golden Frog, a global privacy company, today announced that Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu and the leading provider of services for Ubuntu deployments in the enterprise, has selected VyprVPN for Business. Mobile Canonical employees who work on customer sites will use VyprVPN, a fast and reliable VPN service, to help them securely access the company's collaboration and file sharing resources.

Canonical has over 600 employees in more than 30 countries around the world. The company's global distribution makes it an ideal company to take advantage of VyprVPN for Business. It gives mobile employees an encrypted Internet connection so they can securely share data, ideas and files. Most Canonical employees use Ubuntu, but VyprVPN works across any platform: Windows, Mac or Linux for the desktop and iOS and Android for mobile apps. Employees can also choose between all of Golden Frog's VPN protocols including Chameleon, a proprietary VPN technology that helps break through restrictive Internet environments that attempt to block VPN traffic.

"VyprVPN was by far the fastest VPN service we tested," said Pete Graner, Director Engineering and Operations at Canonical. "After we met with the Golden Frog team, it is clear why. The company has over a decade of experience operating Internet infrastructure on a global basis. They own and operate the hardware and run their own global network, which creates a fast, reliable and private experience that meets the demands of our mobile employees and our business."

VyprVPN for Business includes an admin interface to manage and modify employee accounts. Customers also get a dedicated account manager and priority access to Tier 2 support. Each employee also gets two simultaneous connections, one for a mobile device and another for a desktop or laptop. All VyprVPN members get unlimited bandwidth and connection speeds and are able to switch between VyprVPN servers worldwide without restrictions.

"Employees on the go, or those who work remotely, are the most susceptible to security dangers and Internet restrictions," said Sunday Yokubaitis, president of Golden Frog. "By arming mobile employees with VyprVPN for Business, Canonical is providing them with a tool to remain productive and connected to their colleagues, no matter where they are in the world."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
