Bermuda added to locations on offer by NordVPN

Bermuda is among the new locations offered by NordVPN, the cybersecurity company, as it finished its comprehensive network development phase.

The Panamanian-based company said it now had more than 6,200 servers and access to 111 countries.

NordVPN said that was the broadest geographic coverage among all virtual private network providers.

While NordVPN used only physical VPN servers in the past, the extension of supported locations was possible by the introduction of a new set of virtual servers that the company said followed the highest cybersecurity and privacy standards.

Marijus Briedis, the chief technology officer at NordVPN, said: “The main reason we considered using virtual servers was to provide users access to locations where the possibility of establishing high-quality physical servers is scarce, usually because of a limited physical server infrastructure.

“In this situation, virtual servers come as an optimal solution, providing speeds and connection quality equal to that of a physical server.”

NordVPN said virtual servers operated through dedicated physical servers placed outside the targeted country.

In Bermuda’s case, the physical server is in the United States.

The company said physical servers were configured to resolve an IP address to match the IP of a country different from the one where they were located.

This configuration eliminates the need for a physical server to be grounded in a targeted country to access its network.

The new places for virtual VPN servers were hand picked from around the globe and were chosen in reaction to NordVPN clients’ rising demands and needs, the company said

NordVPN said it had also increased the number of simultaneous connections, and now allowed users to secure up to ten devices with one Nord account.
