"HideAway really is a game changer for VPN's. The flexibility to channel your internet traffic to different countries simultaneously and avoid the hassle of disconnecting and switching countries really improves the user experience," said Nick Bolton, CEO

HideAway reinvents and improves the VPN by adding flexible rules, faster speeds and an ‘Always on’ capability, while at the same time giving users a secure connection, privacy and access to blocked content around the world.

The popularity of VPN's has exploded over the past few years as consumers seek to

  • Access geo-blocked content such as movies, sports and video-on-demand
  • Surf the web anonymously
  • Secure their activity online with encryption

Current VPN's are limited to redirecting a user’s entire computer to a server in another country. HideAway gives users the flexibility to redirect websites and applications to many countries simultaneously. This allows the user to always be connected instead of having to connect and then disconnect to a single country as with a normal VPN.

HideAway users also see faster internet speeds through optimized protocols and encryption, whereas most VPN's usually slow internet speeds by around 30%.

"HideAway really is a game changer for VPN's. The flexibility to channel your internet traffic to different countries simultaneously and avoid the hassle of disconnecting and switching countries really improves the user experience," said Nick Bolton, CEO of Firetrust. "We've also seen many of our test users gain faster internet speeds through HideAway, further increasing their satisfaction."

UNIQUE FEATURES

  • Readymade channels

HideAway makes it easy to access the content users want, by enabling any of the readymade channels to start accessing geo-blocked content from around the world.

  • Rule Creation for ultimate flexibility

As well as being able to choose preset rules/channels, users can create custom rules to redirect, block or ignore traffic to different countries simultaneously. e.g. Direct all Google Chrome traffic to the UK, except youtube.com connects via the Netherlands, while Facebook.com and the Outlook email application connects via the USA.

  • Connectionless and hassle free

Because HideAway uses rules to redirect portions of a user’s internet traffic, it can always be left running. A regular VPN which needs to start up, take 10 seconds to connect, then the user needs to select a country to connect via, then disconnect after use. HideAway removes this annoyance because the user only sets up the rules they need.

  • Faster Speeds

HideAway’s connection protocol is optimized for high speed, and combined with dedicated high speed servers you get low latency and faster upload and download speeds. Most users should see faster internet speeds when using HideAway, whereas most VPN’s reduce internet speeds by 30%.

BETTER PROTECTION

  • Faster and provably secure encryption

Most encryption slows internet connections down, but HideAway uses dedicated high speed servers with the faster and provably secure OCB block cipher encryption with AES encryption so users won’t notice any reduction in speed.

  • Anonymous web surfing

Users can surf the web in complete privacy, because not only is a user’s connection encrypted, HideAway replaces a user’s home IP address with one of its own. Combined with encryption, unsecured public WiFi connections are safe to use

BETTER CONVENIENCE

  • Always connected technology

HideAway is always connected, even when the computer is booted up, although users can easily disable and enable rules on the fly.

  • Flexibility and better access

Because HideAway lets users setup rules to tunnel different websites and applications to different countries simultaneously, users don’t suffer the inconvenience of other VPN’s such as having to connect to the service, then disconnect, or websites like Gmail becoming blocked because it thinks the user is in a different country, or printers, security cameras and backup hard drives no longer working because the computer is no longer local.
