Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection Now Available on Macs with Apple Silicon

Woburn, MA – March 2, 2021 – Kaspersky has updated its VPN Secure Connection security solution to run natively on Macs powered by M1.

With an increase in remote working, the use of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) has significantly grown this year. In the interest of protecting privacy on the web, Kaspersky is constantly updating its solutions to work smoothly with the most innovative platforms by developing native support for the newest hardware.

Apple's powerful M1 system on chip (SoC) delivers improved performance and efficiency to Mac users. And with the latest update of Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection, users of the latest MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini, all powered by M1, can enjoy best-in-class speed while transferring data over a secure VPN tunnel, keeping their online activity private, and hiding their IP address and location. They can connect to more than 2,000 servers across 40 locations in more than 35 countries all over the world, including the USA, Germany, Singapore, and many others. The premium version of Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection also offers a Kill Switch feature that automatically shuts down all traffic from a device if the VPN connection is lost.

“Whether connecting to a public wireless network, shopping online or communicating on social media, it is crucially important to keep private information and payment credentials safe,” said Andrey Rubin, head of Mac product development at Kaspersky. “Taking into account the sophistication of today’s consumers, our developers started the process of adapting Kaspersky products for the new M1 architecture right after WWDC, with the help of the Apple Silicon Developer Transition Kit (DTK). We focused our efforts on making this transition as thorough and fast as possible, so our users could be among the first to access the highest performance, efficiency and power consumption while using Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection.”

The updated solution works across both M1- and Intel-powered Macs. It is available as a free or premium version. Users can learn more about the new Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection, as well as download the free version or buy an extended one, here.
