IPVanish Releases iPhone Client, Partners with BoxCrypt
IPVanish has made two major announcements. First, they’ve partnered up with BoxCrypt, offering a secure online file storage option to their customers. Second, they’ve released their first iPhone client for their service.
BoxCrypt provides encryption security for files stored in cloud services. The cloud services include any that use the WebDAV standard. This includes Strato, HiDrive, Cubby and ownCloud. For users who are using commercial cloud services, BoxCrypt is compatible with the biggest ones out there, including:
- Google Drive
BoxCrypt provides AES-256 and RSA-based encryption, so it’s definitely up to high standards. It’s certainly suitable for personal use and business users will likely find that it gives them a measure of peace of mind, as well. It’s a great way to make sure that the most sensitive information you have is protected from prying eyes without giving up the convenience of being able to use cloud storage.
The partnership allows you to go to the BoxCrypt site and get a 20% discount on the subscription to the service. When you check out, use the coupon code “IPVanish” to get the discount. There is a basic, free account available with this service, as well.
You can check out more about the BoxCrypt service at their page.
IPVanish also took care of the last of the operating systems for which they did not have an app, iOS. Users on iPhones, iPads and iPods can now hook up to a VPN when they’re on their wireless networks or, more importantly, when they’re on a public Wi-Fi connection, where hackers abound.
The new app is designed to be very easy to use. The installation is fast and you don’t have to do any manual networking set up to get it running. It gives you the same protection you get from IPVanish on your desktop, excepting that you’ll have access to that protection in scenarios that are far more security sensitive than working on your own network. – Click here to try IPVanish for free.
You get access to the entire IPVanish network from the mobile app, so there are no compromises. It’s unmetered and unlimited in speed, so you don’t get short changed in regards to how fast your connection works or what you can download.
These are great additions to the IPVanish service. Like many VPN providers, they’re increasing the security services they offer and, for customers, that means more value for the money spent. – Read full review of IPVanish here.
