CyberGhost shares great respect for Snowden for making the whole world aware of the risks we face every time we connect to the Internet or make a phone call.

Global anonymity provider CyberGhost VPN will launch its Mac OS X app on June 5, during a live Hangout on Google+. The new app, which offers users a simple and powerful tool to encrypt their Internet connection and hide their IPs while surfing the web, is launching on June 5 because on that day last year NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked the first set of information revealing that the US and other governments have been engaged in the mass surveillance of the planet’s internet users.
“CyberGhost shares great respect for Snowden for making the whole world aware of the risks we face every time we connect to the Internet or make a phone call,” said Robert Knapp, co-founder and CEO of CyberGhost VPN.
A Best Security/Privacy Startup nominee at The Europas Awards 2014, CyberGhost aims to protect the online identity and the privacy of its users, no matter where they are located on the globe. CyberGhost is a firm advocate of online privacy, security and freedom, and it has encouraged its users to fight against wholesale blanket surveillance, Internet censorship and data snoopers.
The CyberGhost VPN app for Mac has a fresh, intuitive and user-friendly interface.
“Our app gives you anonymity, which is the best and most effective way to keep your Internet sessions private and secure,” said Iulia Porneala, CyberGhost’s Director of Business Development. “Mac users will love it, because it’s simple, fast, and powerful,” she added.
With just one click CyberGhost VPN’s users can change their IP and unlock content that may have been unavailable from their location, while keeping their online identity secret. CyberGhost uses the strongest encryption standard available today, 256-bit AES, often utilised by the military.
CyberGhost’s users can choose from a free and a premium version. The free service, which has received very good reviews from IT experts, allows users access to 36 servers. Premium users have access to more than 300 servers located in 23 countries in Europe, Asia and North America.
“There is a high potential of growth for the VPN industry, as according to data from the International Telecommunications Union there are 2.77 billion Internet users worldwide, and all of them should try to protect their online identities and learn from the information revealed by Edward Snowden,” Porneala said.
“We all live in the post-Snowden world, knowing now that we don’t have privacy at the moment we go online!” said CyberGhost VPN’s Co-founder and CEO Robert Knapp. “Our service helps users to guard their privacy and their online freedom in times of total uncertainty. We are a new type of startup that offers privacy as a service, not making money from user data like Facebook, Google, Yahoo and others, because we do not store any user data,” he added.
The new CyberGhost app for Mac will launch on June 5 during a Google Hangout streamed for the public and the press. The hangout will start at 14:00 EEST (GMT+2). CyberGhost’s CEO and CTO will be available to give details and answer questions. Interested parties can ask questions in advance on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ using the hashtag #cyberghostMac.
