Panama City, Panama – (The Hosting News) – June 13, 2008 – Web hosting service provider, HostingPanama, has launched what is considered a first-of-its-kind tool, allowing for anonymous Internet browsing, through the security of an offshore connection.
Eduardo Vila, Chief Sales Officer of HostingPanama noted, ”For many, it has become increasingly important to have an ability to browse the web privately and securely, especially when handling sensitive data. Xpass provides user friendly functionality to make this a reality.”
The Xpass solution is encrypted and from a Panamanian IP address and creates a high-speed and completely secure proxy connection to the Internet by leveraging HostingPanama’s offshore infrastructure. To use the service, end users located anywhere in the world can use a Web browser to access an SSL-protected portal, or opt to install a small authentication application on their system to reroute all traffic through Xpass. In each case, Internet traffic is completely encrypted and the IP address of the origin network is masked.
Xpass is unique from other proxy services in the level of security it provides. Namely, by masking the IP address of the original network, Xpass eliminates the traversal of worms. In addition, with the service hosted in Panama, it is subject to some of the most protective privacy laws in the world – far more protective of privacy than the United States, Canada, or most of Europe.
To offer a distinct advantage for businesses, when Xpass is used from an uncontrolled or unknown environment (such as an airport’s Internet kiosk), it provides an array of server management tools, including Shell and Remote Desktop, allowing users to manage their servers without compromising security and privacy. The Xpass system starts at $49 per month, is powered by Citrix secure access software.
Based in Panama City, Panama, HostingPanama is an industry leader in outsourced web hosting and colocation services. Emphasizing privacy, security and reliability, the company provides services to over 7,000 businesses worldwide in its nearly 14,000 square feet of datacenter space. HostingPanama was founded in 1999.
