SANTA BARBARA, Calif., June 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual World Computing announced today that Cocoon cloud browser with built-in VPN access is available for use in China. With China being the third most visited country in the world and having the largest population of online users of over 730 million, Cocoon will offer more people security, privacy, and access to restricted website content.
"Travelers and U.S. expatriates find themselves in locations where they can't find a way to get to their favorite American content," said Jeff Bermant, CEO and Co-Founder. "Cocoon provides the easiest and least expensive way to access U.S. content while overseas. We never sell your information — a luxury that sometimes isn't available in the country where you may be visiting or living. Being able to offer this service now in China opens up an entirely new market for us. For example, we can offer access to many educational sites that are currently restricted."
How it works:
- The browser, Cocoon, connects to Virtual World Computing secure servers, allowing users in foreign countries access to U.S.-based content, even from within mainland China.
- Patent-pending advanced isolation technology protects your computer from malware and viruses by not allowing them to touch a PC or Mac's hard drive, even on public Wi-Fi networks.
- Privacy is provided by proxy browsing with military-grade encryption protecting all digital transaction data and shielding IP addresses.
"For us, creating this platform for use in China proved to be an especially difficult challenge. However, we knew just how important it is to have access to sites that may be restricted in countries like China; that's why we worked tirelessly to create this service," said David Amaral, Chief Technical Officer.
Cocoon is available for $1.75 per month and a 3-day free trial, with introductory pricing of $5.25 for 1 year.
