With the addition of servers in Ghana, Saudi Arabia, and Puerto Rico, the commercial VPN service offered by cybersecurity firm Surfshark now has servers in 100 nations. With more than 3200 servers overall, the firm would offer above-average coverage to South America and Africa.
The extended server list is the newest addition to Surfshark’s wide list of services, including MultiHop routes, Kill Switch, Bypasser, Pause VPN, and CleanWeb.
“Having extensive coverage of server locations across the globe assures most people will be able to choose a connection close to their homes, offices, or a traveling destination,” said Justas Pukys, VPN product owner at Surfshark. “It allows a fast and, most importantly, secure and private browsing experience.”
Recently, Surfshark also released a Linux VPN application with a graphic user interface (GUI) and many other new features to come.
Diskless Server Network
In terms of security, Surfshark says it became one of the first VPN providers in 2020 to enhance the security of its infrastructure with a 100% diskless server network, including all 3200+ servers and locations worldwide. Diskless architecture would ensure that if a server were to be physically removed in order to access the data within, it would be promptly erased.
Surfshark is progressively switching from 1Gbps VPN servers to 10Gbps ones throughout the world in an effort to keep up with the faster internet. Half of the sites have 10 Gbps servers installed by the firm, and the remaining locations will shortly follow.
All of Surfshark’s apps are available in the Surfshark One bundle, which entails all four of the company’s solutions. It also comes with Surfshark Antivirus, Surfshark Alert (which can identify various types of leaked data and alert the user where the compromised data has surfaced), and Surfshark Search in addition to the premium privacy protection service provided by Surfshark VPN (a private search tool that performs web search queries without ads, data logging, and trackers).
