With some of the leading privacy brands in its portfolio, Kape is at the forefront of serving the massive growth in this need for digital privacy protection.”
“Personally, I’ve been a happy customer of ExpressVPN for years,” added Truong. “With the TrustedServer technology and their audited policy of not recording any connection or activity logs, it’s clear that the team here has set itself apart with an unwavering commitment to protecting the privacy of customers. And with the recent launches of the Aircove VPN router and the Keys Password Manager, the team is setting the pace in the industry to satisfy the fast-evolving needs of customers. It’s an exhilarating space experiencing tremendous growth, and I’m incredibly excited to deliver even more ways for our customers to secure their digital lives.”
