BartVPN.com, A Guard Of Your Privacy, Launched

Bart VPN guarantees its users total Internet anonymity

SZCZECIN, Poland, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- After recent controversies over signing of the ACTA treaty, over arresting and prosecuting the founder of MegaUpload, and passing extremely rigorous regulations against Internet piracy in the United States, Red Sky launches a new VPN service: Bart VPN, branded Bart the Guard - Privacy Hero.

Bart VPN guarantees its users total Internet anonymity. Bart tightly guards online privacy: by changing visible IPs and tunneling all your communication through secure and stable servers located all around the world it effectively hides its users' identities online. One of its many important features is the so called "P2P friendly" mode which allows safe and anonymous downloading of files wherever you are, even in countries like the United States.

BartVPN.com also guarantees its users safety while surfing online and using online services. As intended by its creators, Bart will ensure total anonymity when registering or logging to Internet services such as YouTube, Facebook, Hulu etc.

Bart has numerous significant advantages that makes it unique among other VPN Software. Using Bart the Guard lets you bypass any Internet geographical limitations and political restrictions. Its special privacy policy and using IP addresses in "P2P friendly" locations allow secure and anonymous file downloads. Bart VPN is compatible with every type of Internet connection and uses only high speed 100 Mb/s servers. It also offers unlimited transfer for every user and the ability to connect using 100 different IP addresses in 8 different countries (1000 IP addresses in 20 different countries in the near future).

While working on the application, creators of Bart the Guard emphasized simplicity. This is why the software is user friendly and easily accessible to everyone, including people with little knowledge about the Internet.

re: BartVPN.com, A Guard Of Your Privacy, Launched
Well, there's other VPN providers that have been doing such things for years... long before the MegaUpload fiasco. That's not to say that new entrants can't provide useful services or enhancements - but it's pretty disingenuous to claim that they're doing something new when, in fact, they're just copying the market leaders who have already established the framework for such services.

Hence the claim that it's "unique among VPN software" just isn't true.

As an example (there are others): Cryptocloud - http://www.cryptocloud.com - has been P2P friendly for five years, and doesn't log customer traffic, and doesn't turn over information to LEO, and has servers 'round the world, and uses 100mbps (or gigabit) machines, and "routes around geographical limitations" - so there's that.

Unfortunately, the VPN market is currentlty flooded with me-too, Johnny-come-lately entrants who tend to engage in marketing hype in an attempt to get a foot in the door. That's to be expected in a growing market, but it's still sort of sad when journalists don't do any background work before touting the latest newbie as "revolutionary" or unique, when they're not. It remids of the iPredator fisaco from back in 2009, when a VPN service launched with loads of marketing hype about their "new" technology... only to be unmasked as a rebranding of an old, broken, PPTP-based service that folks were wisely avoiding. iPredator was also hyped by journalists who didn't ask basic questions about the service - and then had egg on their face when the scam was exposed.

Anyway, perhaps this latest VPN service is doing a good job of matching the established, entrenched, proven industry leaders. If so, good on 'em. But that's a far cry from doing something genuinely new, or offering service enhancements, or in generally moving the industry forward. Riding the coattails of the market leaders is certainly a viable business strategy, but let's not call it what it's not.
