ExpressVPN is one of the most reputable VPNs in today’s market, serving millions of customers around the world. As expected from such a reputable and highly capable VPN, ExpressVPN invests heavily in researching and developing new technologies. Today, we’ve heard news of a revolutionary new feature that could greatly enhance the way your online privacy and security is handled. And this feature is called ‘TrustedServer’ – already available on all of 3,000+ ExpressVPN servers.
Today, VPNs rely on a network of servers scattered across the globe. As you use any VPN application, your data is being processed by those servers. In the best-case scenario, that data is deleted either as soon as it leaves the server or once your session is over. Either way, there is (a very small) chance that your data might be readable during a certain time-frame. Well, ExpressVPN has found a way to eliminate hard drives from their servers, which eliminates any possibility that your data can be recorded even for a split second.
By relying on volatile memory (RAM) and removing hard drives from this equation, ExpressVPN now guarantees that your data will be wiped every time a server is powered off and on. Even in a case if any of its servers get seized, all of its data will be erased during the next boot up. In terms of your privacy and security, this has numerous implications. For the first time ever, you can be 100% sure that no one can get to your data, via any possible means.
What also needs to be said is that ExpressVPN has made changes to ensure that all of its servers run the same, up-to-date software. Each time a server is powered on, it loads the latest image containing the entire software stack, operating system, and all other software components. This means that ExpressVPN can now easily guarantee that all of the 3,000+ servers have exactly the same software configuration, with the latest patches applied. Once a new patch is ready to be deployed, all of the servers will read an image containing the latest patch. This means that the possibility of a server running an older software version is now completely eliminated.
Finally, it’s worth noting that ‘TrustedServer’ is a completely new kind of technology, developed by ExpressVPN in-house. This gives it yet another competitive edge over other VPN services. Let’s not forget that this is one of the rare VPNs capable of unblocking various types of websites and Web-related services while offering reliable and steady speeds, altogether with a ‘no-logs’ policy. With this said, it’s certainly one of the best VPNs right now.
