CyberGhost Boosts Transparency with No Logs Policy Audit
Deloitte Romania completes audit of VPN company’s no logs policy
22nd September 2022, Bucharest, Romania: Online privacy advocates and VPN provider, CyberGhost, has announced that its no logs policy for its VPN service has been independently audited by Deloitte Romania.
CyberGhost invited the big four firm to audit its VPN server network and management systems, examining how it maintains a zero-log VPN service in order to confirm that server configurations align with internal privacy policies, and are not designed to identify users or pinpoint their activities.
CyberGhost is focused on defending people’s right to digital privacy. Transparency and a robust no logs policy are central to that, ensuring people feel confident in their security and anonymity online. To deliver its no logs policy, CyberGhost has developed its VPN network architecture and supporting processes to prevent data retention. By running its VPN service on RAM-only servers, the company can ensure that all server data is immediately deleted with every reboot. CyberGhost also runs a token-based system that ensures every user’s Dedicated IP address is truly anonymous, making it impossible to identify a customer or their browsing details.
“Transparency is in the DNA of CyberGhost. We were the first business in the VPN industry to publish a transparency report and have proudly led from the front to drive better visibility in this space for consumers, ” commented Timo Beyel, CyberGhost spokesperson. “Voluntarily submitting our policies and systems for third-party auditing is a new milestone in our transparency efforts. However, it’s also a continuation of our dedication to delivering the best possible digital privacy experience for our customers.”
This audit has been conducted in accordance with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3000 (Revised) applicable to Assurance Engagements Other Than Audits or Reviews of Historical Financial Information.
