All Aboard! The 4th Birthday party of KeepSolid
In the middle of all of the hustle and bustle of the vacation season, we celebrate 4 years of growing from 5 enthusiasts with just a couple of computers to more than 100 employees nowadays. Such a growth of KeepSolid in this constantly challenging dynamic time is a merit of our determinate, creative, and diligent team. Of course, you, our customers are the ones, who help us drive the company, innovate, and constantly improve. We truly appreciate and especially grateful to everyone, who gives us precious feedback and suggestions about our products.
One more year of KeepSolid life comes to a close, and this is an excellent chance to take stock in all that we have, and what results were achieved for this year.
We are proud of this
It has taken a lot of effort for us to get KeepSolid to the next level over the last year. Our team has worked day and night to improve our services and products to meet the users’ expectations. Now we are pleased to share the highlights of our successes over this year with you.
We focus on providing a full protection and highly secure connection for our clients. Our wide range of services from personal IP’s to SDK for third party developers to VPN for teams makes our product stand out on the market. We can boast an increase of the network of servers to over 1000, spread across 70+ locations, in 50+ countries. This year we also reached 6 million users milestone.
2017 was a year of innovative solutions for VPN Unlimited. We improved KeepSolid Wise protocol so it easier bypasses restrictions. Unfortunately, more and more governments are trying to limit the freedom of speech and expression on the internet. We have fought back.
In May, we presented the release of KeepSolid DNS Firewall. Now our service blocks ads, malware, and tracking systems. Thanks to your contribution, we are improving these functions further. Keep an eye on our social networks and subscribe to newsletters for the announcements about upcoming updates.
