MEGGEN, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- Golden Frog, a global privacy company, today announced that reddit, an online community where users submit, vote, and comment on which stories and discussions are important, has provided its employees with VyprVPN for Business accounts. VyprVPN, a fast and reliable personal VPN, provides reddit employees with secure, encrypted Internet connectivity.

"We evaluated several VPNs, and it became clear that VyprVPN is the best service on the market. It's the only VPN that is reliable and fast enough for the business use," said Ricky Ramirez, system administrator, reddit. "Our employees all have VyprVPN installed on their laptops and smart phones, and they use it to establish a secure connection whenever they are outside the office."

VyprVPN for Business protects business communication one employee, and one device at a time. The service provides an encrypted Internet connection to secure business data and communications, protect employees' identity and allow organizations to conduct business intelligence on a worldwide scale.

"We are big fans of reddit, they are a forward thinking company that has a tremendous pulse on the current state of the Internet. Furthermore, their passionate community is very interested, and very vocal, about online privacy issues," said Sunday Yokubaitis, president, Golden Frog. "To have reddit select VyprVPN for Business, after evaluating several of our competitors, is very gratifying."

VyprVPN for Business customers receive a simple to use admin interface for account management, a dedicated account manager and access to Tier II tech support. Business users also have access to Windows or Mac desktop applications and iOS and Android mobile apps. Finally, users can choose between all of Golden Frog's VPN protocols, including Chameleon, a proprietary VPN technology that scrambles OpenVPN packet metadata that helps users break through restrictive environments like China that attempt to block VPN traffic.

Each VyprVPN Business user account includes two connections, one for a mobile device and another for a desktop or laptop.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
