We’re at Computex in Taipei, Taiwan this week joining in the global information and communication technology (ICT) conference. This conference is all about computing, and this year’s show focuses on Building Partnerships in Internet Computing Ecosystems. As technology continues to evolve rapidly, many new exciting trends are appearing at this year’s show. Four main themes for this year are IoT, innovation/startups, business solutions and gaming. Virtual reality is also proving to be a huge trend this year, with many VR appearances around the conference!
This year’s focus couldn’t be more fitting, as Golden Frog works hard to cultivate partnerships and create an ecosystem of services and products that are available across platforms. By partnering with top companies, we can offer our users an entire ecosystem of services to choose from so they may customize a solution to fit their needs. This includes offering services across platforms and devices.
Our most recent partnership with QNAP supports this model, as we’ve expanded our VyprVPN service for use on QNAP devices (coming soon!). We also work to offer solutions for the entire home like VyprVPN Router, in response to the ever-growing Internet of Things (IoT), the popularity of gaming, and the increasing number of connected devices. With so many new devices, and such an array of needs, you can learn more about why you might need a VPN here.
