Golden Frog Launches Fourth Server Location in the Middle East to Fight Internet Censorship
After adding three server locations in the region in July, the online privacy company adds a fourth Middle East location in Dubai
MEGGEN, SWITZERLAND – August 10, 2015 – Golden Frog, a company that fights for online privacy and an open Internet, announced today that it has launched its fourth server location in the Middle East. The VyprVPN location in Dubai will offer a nearby connection point for Internet users in the Middle East who are looking to break out of restrictive Internet censorship.
The Internet in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is not completely open. The Muslim nation’s ISPs ban pornography, politically sensitive material, dating sites, and all Israeli domains. Many VoIP services like Skype are also blocked. However, Dubai’s tech-centric culture, robust Internet infrastructure, and relatively open Internet compared to other countries in the region make the UAE the ideal place for Internet users in the Middle East to find a nearby connection.
“The struggle for Internet freedom continues to be a major issue in the Middle East,” said Sunday Yokubaitis, president of Golden Frog. “VyprVPN, with a Dubai server location, will open up access to new information and lift the curtain of censorship that has plagued the region for so long.”
VyprVPN encrypts users’ Internet connections and enables them to thwart the data snooping and inspection of Internet traffic that is regularly practiced by governments and commercial ISPs. By encrypting the “last mile” (the connection between the user’s device/computer and the Internet backbone), users can better ensure their online privacy and open up an uncensored and secure Internet, no matter where they are in the world.
VyprVPN customers now have access to more than 700 servers in 50+ locations across North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Oceania. They get unlimited bandwidth and connection speeds and are able to switch between servers worldwide without restrictions. Each location is compatible with all VPN protocols: PPTP, L2TP/IPsec, OpenVPN, as well as Golden Frog’s proprietary VPN technology, Chameleon. In addition, Golden Frog offers VyprDNS at each VyprVPN server location. VyprDNS is a zero-knowledge DNS service for VyprVPN users that defeats Internet censorship, performs no logging of hostnames and offers superior DNS geolocation.
