NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- IPVanish, the world's leading tier-1 VPN, offers fully owned, private security servers providing the encryption that Australians need, following new legislation. With recent Australian metadata retention laws requiring that government agencies obtain individuals' and businesses' private online data, many Australian citizens are seeking forms of online protection outside of their home country for their dwindling privacy.
By using IPVanish VPN software, all online activity passes through an encrypted tunnel in an offshore location, rendering individual user identity secure and anonymous. Prying government agencies will no longer be able to view personal data, so users have the ability to browse and communicate online freely and without the worry of privacy being at stake.
The recent metadata retention laws require that confidential data from regular users as well as businesses be collected by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and telecommunications companies, now part of at least 21 agencies of executive government. The intention of these new laws aims to seek out and prevent crime and domestic terrorism; however, the collection of metadata, including calls, texts, and emails is prompting many to see this as a serious threat to individual privacy. The entities who obtain user data will have access to account holder information, where communication is being made, the date, time, channel, and duration of the communication, as well as what type of delivery service is being used, such as cable or Wi-Fi.
Despite these metadata retention laws, tier-1 VPN providers like IPVanish offer a solution for Australians to maintain their right to online privacy. Most VPN providers run their service on borrowed equipment, resulting in slower speeds and less security. IPVanish runs their own state-of-the art tier-1 network, offering customers best-in-class connection speeds and bulletproof security. Another essential component of a VPN service is keeping no logs.
