launches

Vilnius, Lithuania – Specialized in a range of high-quality virtual dedicated servers for professionals, the company Time4VPS has introduced an AES-256 encrypted VPN service. The brand new service has been launched to ensure the secure access to various online resources. VPN servers are available on three continents: Europe, North America, and Asia.

According to Time4VPS CEO Arvydas Strausas, nowadays internet users are concerned about their privacy and security. In fact, not all internet apps, such as e-mail, web, messaging, Facebook, etc., are secure. In this case, the VPN service provides extra encryption and security for transferring personal data.


“We use plenty of various applications each day. In fact, not all of them are secure. At the end of the day, insecure browsing can end up with a theft of our passwords and other personal information. Basically, the VPN service is one of the most reliable solutions to protect ourselves from this”, – says Mrs. Strausas.

By encrypting internet traffic, VPN service helps to avoid leaking of such personal data as user’s online activity or web browsing history to the third parties. For example, advertisers. Also, VPN protects against cyber criminals when using low-security networks, such as public Wi-Fi hotspot, and helps to evade country restriction.

Time4VPS offers a ready-to-use and easy to set up VPN service that allows using P2P safely. L2TP and OpenVPN protocols are available to perform fast speed, even on connections with a high latency and across great distances.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS – Leaseweb announced today the launch of its innovative multi-Content Delivery Network (CDN) and private CDN, based on true next generation CDN technology. The cloud infrastructure service provider has significantly expanded its worldwide CDN services, reaching new markets in South America, Asia Pacific, and Russia. Leaseweb has also added multiple innovative features for its customers in the entertainment and e-commerce industries.

Within the surging CDN market, multi-CDNs are a relatively new phenomenon. They are built to form a federation of several content networks, allowing publishers to scale up their overall capacity or expand their global reach by adding POPs to the network where a single CDN may not have coverage. By offering a single control panel, the Leaseweb multi-CDN solution helps internet companies overcome the management and cost issues of running multiple CDNs simultaneously. Most current multi-CDNs on the market have a limited feature set and require manual configuration. This led Leaseweb to expand its global service offering with a next generation multi-CDN platform.


In addition to the multi-CDN offering, Leaseweb is also offering the possibility of integrating a managed private CDN. A private CDN is a dedicated network and therefore ideal for customers with specific requirements. This new service is in line with the hybrid strategy of Leaseweb, giving customers the power to combine a public and a private CDN via one self-service customer portal. Leaseweb now offers best-in-class performance through personalized configuration, unified reporting and extensive security functionality.

Julien Lehmann, Managing Director at Leaseweb CDN, says about the next generation multi-CDN: “For many of our customers in the field of entertainment and e-commerce the user experience is key and CDNs are crucial in achieving this. As the use of multiple CDNs gains broader adoption by the market, we decided to make a strategic move from offering our CDN platform to giving direct access to our CDN expertise. This way we can act as a trusted partner and propose the best multi or hybrid CDN solution to our customers in a transparent manner.”
