Orchid says its new VPN protocol and token will make privacy more private. The launch of Orchid’s new product is expected this week. If successful, Orchid may revolutionize VPNs.

It should be interesting to see what happens with Orchid’s new VPN.
VPNs are supposed to establish secure, private connections between an individual computer and a network so that third parties can’t snoop on data. But the problem, according to Orchid CEO Steven “Seven” Waterhouse, is that VPN providers technically can see what people are doing while using their services. Orchid’s design promotes anonymity by making it nearly impossible for VPN providers to do that.
