Golden Frog Updates VyprVPN App for Giganews to 1.0

Updates Include Improved UI, Security, Speed, and Reliability

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 24, 2012) - Giganews, the world's largest Usenet provider, announces today that their partner, Golden Frog, has released the VyprVPN App for Giganews 1.0. Giganews customer feedback fueled Golden Frog's numerous improvements to the VyprVPN App's user interface and functionality.

Giganews partnered with Golden Frog 18 months ago to integrate the professional-grade personal VPN service (VyprVPN) with the Giganews' premier Usenet service. Golden Frog's VyprVPN is a personal Virtual Private Network (VPN) service that provides a secure, encrypted connection to the Internet. VyprVPN and the VyprVPN App are available free with every Giganews Diamond account, allowing Giganews customers to automatically configure and easily manage their VyprVPN connections. In addition to unlimited speeds, unlimited IP address availability and no download caps, the VyprVPN App lets Giganews customers easily switch between VPN protocols and North American, European and Asian VyprVPN server locations with a single click.

"The feedback we've received from Giganews customers has helped us to polish up virtually every aspect of the VyprVPN App with better performance, better usability, more security and increased reliability," explains Philip Molter, CTO at Golden Frog. "We've made numerous improvements to the user interface and the 'under the hood' functionality that it only made sense to remove 'Beta' from the name altogether."

With the introduction of 1.0, Golden Frog's VyprVPN App for Giganews boasts new features that include:

  • Native support for more languages, including Spanish, Dutch, German, Portuguese and Mandarin
  • Multitude of look and feel improvements throughout the application
  • Improved PPTP and L2TP stability
  • Improved OpenVPN speed and reliability

"Since the beginning of our partnership with Golden Frog, we've experienced double-digit growth in new accounts and account upgrades, plus a huge increase in customer retention," states Ed Henigin, CTO at Giganews. "We can only expect that as Golden Frog continues to make improvements to the VyprVPN App, business will continue to thrive."

VyprVPN App for Giganews 1.0 is available free for current Diamond members and sub-diamond members with VyprVPN access.
