Gamers and business users who want a way to connect with their peers on a localized network should consider LogMeIn by Hamachi. This service allows users to create virtual networks as they need them. Hamachi does not manage a bank of servers. Users provide the space on their networked systems so that other users can access the network at any time.
End users can manage their virtual network from anywhere. They do not have to be on the system that is hosting the network. If there is internet access, and the user has the appropriate credentials, they can make changes or restore the network. IT technicians can use LogMeIn to provision software on new servers without making a trip onsite to do th... read more
Virtual Private Networks, by design, exist to help protect users from prying eyes online. Netmap is a Russian service that offers five different encryption protocols for users to choose from: PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, IKEv2, TOR node, and OpenVPN.

There are no bandwidth limits. Netmap is perfect for those interested in streaming the latest videos. They are one of the few VPN providers that offer a static IP address for all their users.

VPN service providers seem to be popping up all around the globe. The newly minted NuVPN is no different. Established in 2017, the company is proud of their dedication to user privacy. They are based out of the British Virgin Islands, an area known for their privacy protection. They do not keep DNS or IP address information. However, they do store logs of the user agent string and the requested resource, so they do log some of the information. They suggest that you also opt out of Windows client data collection, as they still receive requests for information from these programs. However, they assure customers that the information provided does not contain any information to identify the user... read moreSee plans and pricing www.nuvpn.com
The America-based Unblock-Us VPN technically does most of what a VPN service should do, but functions differently enough that it probably isn’t a true VPN at all. Here’s how they describe their platform:
“Every computer or other Internet-enabled device has an address. It's made up of numbers, like a street address. Our solution is brilliantly simple. We give you an address where the content you want is available. It's like moving your computer or other device without actually moving it.”
In other words, they don’t connect you to another server in another country, they just assign you a different IP address. Is it effective? Sure. Is it as robust as connecting to multiple servers (whi... read more
Pearl VPN is a new player in the VPN market (since the beginning of 2018) and still has some way to go in terms of matching some of the basic offerings of more established VPNs. Pearl VPN evidently strives for simplicity, but currently, things are a little too simple.
The fact that this VPN is based in the United States (a Five Eyes nation) may make some potential users a little more apprehensive.
Pearl VPN does have some bright spots to build off. They have a decent server network in locations including Australia, the UK, and Vietnam, plus multiple servers in the USA. For now, at least, their speeds are above average.
Security is basic yet adequate with Pearl VPN. You get 256-bit encrypti... read more
