With Dynamic MultiHop, a new feature, cybersecurity company Surfshark now enables users to utilize two VPN servers simultaneously rather than just one, and manually choose both locations to form server pairings that best meet their requirements. Since users will be able to select from more than 100 server country locations, the functionality would allow users to completely customize their connection.
Surfshark’s VPN servers are linked to a single, worldwide network using software defined networking (SDN). Dynamic MultiHop is a component of the “innovative, award-winning” Surfshark Nexus technology.
“To put it simply, MultiHop is a double VPN service, allowing users to connect via two different VPN servers at the same time,” said Justas Pukys, VPN Product Owner at Surfshark. “This function makes tracking or hacking users’ connections twice as hard as their information is routed via multiple countries. Previously, users could only use preselected server pairs, but after the update, they can choose both locations manually. It helps not only to get additional security, privacy, and customization but, in some cases, it could also improve speeds.”
Along with Surfshark’s previously introduced IP Rotator, Dynamic MultiHop is the most recent addition to their Nexus package, making it even more difficult for websites and businesses to trace their visitors’ activities. IP Rotator switches users’ IP addresses often (every five to ten minutes).
Surfshark offers a series of privacy-protection technologies designed to provide users easy access to and control over their online presence. One of the few VPNs that has been examined by independent security experts is part of the Surfshark One package, which also contains an officially recognized antivirus, a private search tool, and a data leak alarm system. The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in 2021 named Surfshark the Most Innovative Security Service, while TechRadar’s WFH Awards named it a Must-Have App.
