MEGGEN, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- Golden Frog, a global privacy company, today announced that reddit, an online community where users submit, vote, and comment on which stories and discussions are important, has provided its employees with VyprVPN for Business accounts. VyprVPN, a fast and reliable personal VPN, provides reddit employees with secure, encrypted Internet connectivity.

"We evaluated several VPNs, and it became clear that VyprVPN is the best service on the market. It's the only VPN that is reliable and fast enough for the business use," said Ricky Ramirez, system administrator, reddit. "Our employees all have VyprVPN installed on their laptops and smart phones, and they use it to establish a secure connection whenever they are outside the office."

VyprVPN for Business protects business communication one employee, and one device at a time. The service provides an encrypted Internet connection to secure business data and communications, protect employees' identity and allow organizations to conduct business intelligence on a worldwide scale.

"We are big fans of reddit, they are a forward thinking company that has a tremendous pulse on the current state of the Internet. Furthermore, their passionate community is very interested, and very vocal, about online privacy issues," said Sunday Yokubaitis, president, Golden Frog. "To have reddit select VyprVPN for Business, after evaluating several of our competitors, is very gratifying."

VyprVPN for Business customers receive a simple to use admin interface for account management, a dedicated account manager and access to Tier II tech support. Business users also have access to Windows or Mac desktop applications and iOS and Android mobile apps. Finally, users can choose between all of Golden Frog's VPN protocols, including Chameleon, a proprietary VPN technology that scrambles OpenVPN packet metadata that helps users break through restrictive environments like China that attempt to block VPN traffic.

Each VyprVPN Business user account includes two connections, one for a mobile device and another for a desktop or laptop. All VyprVPN members get unlimited bandwidth and connection speeds and are able to switch between VyprVPN servers worldwide without restrictions or download caps at no additional charge.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.
