“In the last couple years, identity theft has risen to an alarming rate,” Mark Adamson explained. “Hackers have found it easy to buy a part from a computer store, sites online teach you to use the part and hack into websites. “Criminals no longer have to buy a gun and rob you that way. They can just sit at a coffee shot and hack wireless users sitting around them,” Adamson added. “SurfSafeVPN is the solution to a global problem. When you are online, someone can steal your information from anywhere in the world if you are not protected.”
A VPN is a program that offers privacy while on the Internet. The program routes information through an encrypted tunnel and shields users’ activities from their ISP and potential hackers and identity thieves who could prey on sensitive data. There are other companies that offer VPN services, but most of these firms target a younger audience interested in obtaining unauthorized music and movies. Large corporations often get VPN's established through giants like Cisco, which supplies hardware and software, but that is too costly for typical small businesses and medium-sized organizations.
SurfSafeVPN is designed as an effective, affordable and user-friendly VPN for individuals and small and medium-sized businesses. “It is better to be proactive than reactive when it comes to protecting your sensitive information,”
Leading up to 2007, the Adamson brothers owned home building, land development and landscaping companies in the Atlanta area. They decided to exit those industries and start a real estate website called Searchrealestatefree.com, a national multi-listing website for real estate community. It was then they realized the benefits of a VPN, and the lack of a program to provide this protection for home computer users and small and medium-sized businesses.
“When we initially dealt with a VPN, it was slow, cumbersome and difficult to use, but we liked the idea of the product and recognized its importance,”
Since many people are not aware of what a VPN offers, the Adamsons believe the market for home computer users and small to medium-sized businesses is mostly untapped. They plan to grow the company through multiple avenues.
“We are about to embark on a revenue-share program with ISPs (Internet Service Providers),”
“The customer base for SurfSafeVPN is wide-ranging. If you are on the Internet, you need a VPN, especially since identity theft continues to become more widespread,”
