Guest Post: NordVPN Recaps Products, Technologies & Features

The first seven months of the year have been a busy time for NordVPN, one of the most advanced VPN services in the world. The company has released fresh features, announced new products, and adopted pioneering technologies. Here comes a short recap of all the news and a few hints of what else we can expect this year.

By the way, at the moment you can claim your 75% discount for NordVPN and get a 3-year deal for just €2.62/mo or $2.99/mo. The sale is ending soon.

File encryption and password management

NordVPN is moving with confidence towards becoming an all-around cybersecurity solution. This year, the VPN service provider has announced two new cybersecurity tools – NordPass and NordLocker.

NordPass is a new generation password manager, while NordLocker applies end-to-end encryption to files stored on a user’s computer or in the cloud. The company expects to release both new tools this year. At the moment, NordLocker and NordPass are going through closed beta testing.

Faster VPN with NordLynx

A few weeks ago, NordVPN introduced the NordLynx technology built around the WireGuard® VPN protocol. The new technology combines WireGuard’s high-speed connection and NordVPN’s custom double Network Address Translation (NAT) system, which safeguards users’ privacy.

Although WireGuard is easy to implement and is considered to be faster than the current leading protocols, its ability to secure users’ privacy often comes up as a point for discussion. That’s why NordVPN added its own double NAT system, which allows not to store any identifiable user data on the server. At the moment, NordLynx is available for Linux users only.

The new features for iOS

This spring, NordVPN has introduced new features in its iOS app, used by more than 5 million people worldwide. The feature that attracted the most attention was NordVPN’s integration with Shortcuts – Apple’s dedicated app for Siri. Now you can ask Siri: “Hey Siri, where’s my online security?” or “Hey Siri, connect to NordVPN,” and your internet traffic will be encrypted in seconds.

VPN Auto-Connect and CyberSec are two more features that have recently arrived to NordVPN for iOS. With Auto-Connect on, the app will automatically connect to VPN when, for example, you are on public Wi-Fi. CyberSec will protect your iPhone from malware, spyware, stealthy trackers, and from participating in DDoS attacks.

What to expect next

NordLocker and NordPass might not be the only two new products to be launched this year. NordVPN’s team is developing a new business VPN solution, but its launch date remains under wraps for now.

In addition, NordVPN has been actively expanding its retail distribution this year. NordVPN’s subscription boxes are available for sale in brick-and-mortar stores all across the US, Canada, and Germany.

Finally, NordVPN has kept its promise and is actively working on various social responsibility campaigns – from supporting internet freedom projects to fighting censorship.
