NordVPN deployed colocated servers and added a private server network, wholly-owned and controlled by the company itself. With complete ownership, the company aims to serve NordVPN users with an even higher level of security and privacy.
More countries will be onboarded at the end of 2020
NordVPN’s first colocated servers are up and running in Finland. According to the announcement, several successful tests were run to make sure the new infrastructure operates at its best performance. The company will update its server network further until the end of the year.
Marijus Briedis, CTO at NordVPN, said,
“The greatest advantage of having colocated servers is their complete ownership, which guarantees access only by our authorized people. We run our VPN service from a remote location, while the servers are housed in a secure facility with continual power supply, strong internet connectivity, and maximum security. In the long run, we’re planning to update our entire infrastructure with colocated servers. By the end of this year, more countries will be onboarded.”
Server colocation is one of NordVPN’s large-scale infrastructure improvements. The company expanded its team looking out for potential flaws in its system with a bug bounty program. Recently, NordVPN underwent a second evaluation by one of the Big Four auditing firms, PricewaterhouseCoopers AG Switzerland (PwC Switzerland), which tested and confirmed our no-logs policy claims. The company also became one of the founding members of the VPN Trust Initiative last year.
