We are always working hard to make sure you are protected online. Our efforts are led by a team of 170+ tech experts, including programmers, security specialists, and IT architects. Here’s what we’re doing to give you the most secure VPN experience.
We’ve partnered with VerSprite, a leading US cybersecurity consulting firm, to help improve our service. To follow up on the promise, we are building an Advisory Security Council of international cybersec experts.
We successfully completed a second no-log policy assurance engagement, performed by PricewaterhouseCoopers AG (PwC) Switzerland. We will invite VerSprite to scour NordVPN’s apps for any vulnerabilities to follow up on our 2019 efforts.
Together with VerSprite, we set security standards for the datacenters we work with and make sure they comply with them. We have also begun to build a network of collocated servers, owned exclusively by NordVPN.
We are planning to upgrade to RAM servers, creating a centralized network where no data is stored locally.
Internal penetration testing
Our professional penetration testing team constantly probes the NordVPN infrastructure for weaknesses. These experts simulate real-world attacks to expose and patch up vulnerabilities.
We are continuously running a bug bounty program on HackerOne for ethical hackers to report security flaws for monetary reward. We encourage our community to analyze NordVPN’s website, apps, and services.
External security partner VerSprite
NordVPN has partnered with VerSprite, a global leader in cybersecurity consulting and advisory services. VerSprite will be performing a comprehensive penetration test, examining our intrusion handling, and providing us with vendor risk assessments.
We have recently deployed NordLynx, a technology built around WireGuard®, which is the fastest VPN protocol on the market. Despite being the fastest, WireGuard® has some security drawbacks. Since we couldn’t compromise our customers’ privacy, we developed a custom double NAT (Network Address Translation) system to ensure top-notch security around unparalleled speed capabilities.
