NetNut to Launch a Free VPN
Israeli proxy provider NetNut is launching a new virtual private network application, as reported by its parent company Safe-T Group. The VPN targets consumers and will be available on all operating systems free of charge.
NetNut’s forthcoming product will make use of the provider’s static residential proxy infrastructure to offer secure access in over 100 countries around the world.
The company hopes to quickly capture a substantial stream of users by providing a high-quality and secure experience which “up until now was available only for paying users in the VPN consumer market”.
The report fails to specify when the VPN app will be launched. Thus far, there are no signs of it on NetNut’s website.
NetNut’s move suggests that the provider might be eyeing to expand its product lineup with peer-to-peer residential proxies. The model of acquiring IPs through a free VPN has proven to be very successful for the company’s Israeli competitor Luminati.
