ExpressVPN is already known as one of the top software on the market. Its extensive network with thousands of servers and great connection speeds, along with extra security features and secure protocols, wow millions of people looking for online anonymity and privacy when browsing online. But now, the company has announced the development of a supposed, new technology that will provide extra protection for its users.
With the new TrustedServer technology, ExpressVPN is taking its commitment to the company’s no-log policy a step further by removing hard drives from the program’s servers. The software will now rely only on volatile memory (RAM). As the company explains, with traditional server administration, there’s a higher risk of data being compromised. With each new update, chances are that differences will arise between servers. In the long term, this means that servers could be running software in unexpected ways, making room for potential security breaches. On the other hand, since RAM requires power to store data, each time the server is powered on and off, data will be wiped. This way, it will be completely impossible to retain any kind of data from people using the VPN.
Additionally, if VPN providers run their servers exclusively on RAM memory, then data will be wiped and the OS will be reinstalled with each reboot, reducing the chances of software deviating from its intended purpose.
Nonetheless, ExpressVPN customers will be happy that their provider is guaranteeing that servers are all running the same exact code. As the company puts it, “the more software consistency there is across a network, the less likely that there are vulnerabilities or misconfigurations”.
