Global VPN Market

The global VPN market is dedicated to data transport and protection. This already substantial market ($49 billion USD) grows annually at a rate of 22%. Developments such as the connection of the African continent (via submarine cables) will lead to new geographical markets.

DCGreen’s OpticVPN is the most user-friendly and fastest VPN network globally. Security and stability are paramount standards. Investment and ongoing costs represent only a fraction of competitive figures.

The VPN market is undergoing transformation: transitioning from the security protocol IPsec („Internet Protocol Security“) and OpenVPN to the superior WireGuard® standard—an ultra-fast, modern, and extremely secure VPN protocol utilizing state-of-the-art cryptography.

The VPN market ensures compatibility across various devices (e.g., smartphone, tablet, laptop, smartwatch). Many major companies (e.g., Linux, Android, Windows, Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Oracle, MacOS, and Ubisoft) are already transitioning to the WireGuard® standard.
