Built by scientists and publicly audited
Proton was founded in Geneva, Switzerland by scientists who met at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and today remains led by scientists. In line with our scientific DNA, Proton VPN is open source. Our security claims are not merely claims, but facts that anybody can verify and are publicly audited(new window).
Based in Switzerland, but serving the world
As a Swiss company, Proton falls under the protection of some of the world’s strongest privacy laws. Switzerland is neutral, allowing Proton customers to benefit from unparalleled stability, discretion, and rule of law. Our customers range from governments to startups, and we serve over 100 million end user accounts.
Unparalleled resilience under pressure
Proton’s mission is to serve the public good. Our VPN is regularly battle-tested in some of the world’s most adverse environments. Proton VPN users include Novaya Gazeta, winner of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, and our work advancing internet freedom has been chronicled on the front page of the New York Times(new window).
Expertise and experience like no other
Our team consists of the 400+ researchers, engineers, and security specialists who created Proton Mail and many other popular security services. We operate 24/7 to build a safer internet and support our user community. Sir Tim Berners-Lee, former CERN scientist and inventor of the World Wide Web, sits on our advisory board.
Dedicated IP addresses and servers
Dedicated IP addresses and private gateways allow employees to securely access company resources from anywhere, while allowing you to deny access from all others such as malicious actors.
Ease your compliance journey
Private gateways and dedicated servers make it easy to segment and control access to sensitive resources, making it easy to meet the requirements for security certifications such as ISO 27001, SOC2, etc.
Instant deployment with zero hardware
No hardware is required, which means you can get started with Proton VPN right away. With a fast and simple deployment and 24/7 support, onboarding is a seamless experience.
Defend against malware threats
Our NetShield malware-blocker helps prevent malicious internet sites from infecting your team’s devices. It can also block ads, trackers, and other categories of unwanted online activity.
Protection against MITM attacks
Proton VPN applications have built-in protections against man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks for operations over hostile networks. Proton VPN apps will proactively warn if such an attempt is detected and refuse connections to a malicious server.
