Audit seems to be the new black in the virtual private network industry. VPN providers that are confident over their claims of keeping zero-logs of their users’ data or VPN activities are taking the bold step of having their systems audited by third-party auditors.

PureVPN is making waves in the industry for joining the ranks of No-Log VPN services.

PureVPN No-Log Audit

Although the VPN provider has already revamped its Privacy Policy, clarifying to its users that they don’t keep any logs related to connection or usage records. The move was, in fact, positively taken by the big names in the industry. Still, PureVPN stated that it received queries and feedback on their Live Chat regarding any substantial evidence to their claims.

Since the VPN provider is confident on its claims and to ensure their users that their privacy is safe with them, PureVPN engaged an independent auditor, Altius IT, for thoroughly examining the systems and networks.

The confidence of PureVPN on its zero log claims can also be assessed by the fact that the VPN provider shared its live environment with the auditor for the technical evaluation instead of creating dummy server environment as done in the past by other no-log certified VPN providers.

Altius IT compared the privacy policy claims of PureVPN and evaluated those claims against their systems and logs. At the end of the report, the auditor concluded that it:

“did not find any evidence of system configurations and/or system/service log files that independently, or collectively, could lead to identifying a specific person and/or the person’s activity when using the PureVPN service.”

Right Move at the Right Time

A couple of years ago, PureVPN’s market reputation was smudged by an incident involving a law enforcement agency. Because of the unfortunate event, users began to have developed mixed feelings regarding the reliability of the service.

The third-party audit is the right move taken by the VPN provider at the right time as it tends to help users find the missing trust in their hearts. An independent audit assures users that the VPN provider is utterly trustworthy because a non-associated auditor has validated the VPN providers’ zero-log claims.

The complete audit report is available for PureVPN users, which can be accessed via their Member’s area.
