ZenMate goodies are coming your way!
Lately we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes, preparing to launch a new generation of ZenMate for you.
Here’s a taste of what’s to come.
For the past months, our team has been working around the clock to upgrade ZenMate and bring you the best available VPN technologies and benefits. Our Development and Infrastructure teams (Cheers, guys!) have been very, very busy, pulling together towards our BIG purpose: giving you the best possible VPN experience.
Let’s get into some of the specifics of how we plan to do that.
First, we’re taking a huge step forward and adding Multiple Protocol Support to ZenMate. This will allow you to tweak your experience based on your network and needs. Plus, having a variety in protocols is essential for bypassing online restrictions or streaming videos effectively.
What’s more, we’re also adding OpenVPN support to all our existing servers. Get ready to enjoy the highest levels of security.
And since we’re on the topic of security, you should know we’re also improving our authentication process by bringing you Double Encryption.
To put it simply, Double Encryption signifies that both the traffic in the VPN tunnel and the ZenMate authentication data are encrypted. The result is a fully secure VPN link.
If you need more details, here’s the process of Double Encryption:
- OpenVPN initiates a TLS session over the control channel and uses it to exchange cipher and SHA256 keys to protect the data channel.
- This initial control channel TLS handshake uses AES-256.
- Each user has a unique key and certificate signed by our CA.
Please note we will not be using static preshared keys or tls-auth. Moreover, the data channel packets are being additionally verified with a hash algorithm.
Time for our Infrastructure team to take the center stage. They’ve been expanding our network by adding new servers in different countries and locations. You’ll soon see the results when using ZenMate.
But wait, there’s more.
Our Support team is also going through an expansion. This will help us significantly improve the speed for handling your requests and – soon – let us open new communication channels for you.
We’ve got more good stuff cooking, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, feel free to contact us and let us know what you think would help make ZenMate even better.
There’s nothing but good times ahead.
