IPSec

IPsec is a protocol built into most desktop, phone and tablet devices. We support both L2TP and IKEv2 for IPSec on select platforms providing you fast, secure and reliable performance.

Openvpn card

OpenVPN™

Our Chameleon™ technology defeats censorship by scrambling metadata to prevent deep packet inspection (DPI), VPN blocking and throttling.

Chameleon card

Chameleon™

Unsere Technologie Chameleon™ besiegt die Zensur, indem sie Metadaten verschlüsselt, um Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), VPN-Blockierung und Drosselung zu verhindern.

NAT Firewall

Network Address Translation (NAT) Firewall is an additional layer of security for any device connected to VyprVPN. It blocks unrequested inbound traffic, and no additional configuration or software is required for this default feature.
