Is DPN better than VPN? Is it safe?

Compared to traditional VPNs that are supported by centralized servers (where taking down the central servers can paralyze the network); DPN is a decentralized network that will not have a Single-Point-of-Failure across the service. To list a few advantages of DPN over VPN:

  • Stable connection (the network cannot be taken down like traditional VPN servers)

  • High-speed internet (main weakness in the performance of traditional VPNs)

  • Users have control over their own data; encrypted and secured (no centralized servers means that user data can never be logged, leaked, hacked, or subpoenaed)

  • Plug and Play (vs complicated set up of traditional VPNs)

DPN is only one of the features that we offer. Our core technology is network security as our device is also a 7-layer firewall capable of deep packet inspection, protecting our users at all times in their home network. Our device is also capable of distinguishing the user's own connection and sharing connections, which can prove your innocence if someone has taken advantage of your bandwidth. Finally, if users are still concerned about sharing their network, we provide the option to turn off bandwidth sharing.

How do we verify this is more than just a hardwired VPN?

Users can easily verify the device bandwidth sharing properties, and they will know this is an authentic decentralized VPN.

How stable is your system? Will there be network interruptions as seen in other VPNs?

Compared to traditional VPNs that are supported by a centralized network (where taking down the central servers will paralyze the network); DPN is a decentralized network that will not have a Single Point Failure across the service. DPN can also survive IP address blocking, port blocking, and pattern detection.

VPN services usually have hundreds of servers located across the globe, does that make them effectively decentralized?

VPN services can have thousands of servers, but at the end of the day all the servers are controlled by the VPN provider, that is what centralization means. When the centralized server is down, the whole network will be affected. You are entrusting your data to the VPN provider, even if they claim to not log there have been many instances of VPNs providing user data over to other parties. That is something impossible to do in a decentralized private network since there are no servers and no central authority in charge.

According to your comparative table VPN (software) and TOR (software) have low energy consumption. What does that mean?

VPN and TOR are software that is why we consider them to consume significantly less CPU time. In that sense they have low power consumption as compared to an enterprise firewall.

According to your comparative analysis, VPNs do not have privacy protection, or high performance and a home router does not have high performance or high throughput. Where are you getting your data?

The high throughput comes from our smart route features and decentralized nodes spread all around the world. The more users join our network the faster it will be. Just like BitTorrent, our DPN represents a totally new technology beyond current VPN technologies.

How are you better than Firewalla?

Deeper Connect is totally different to Firewalla. Firewalla is an open VPN that allows devices to connect back home when you are away but by its use of an open VPN it requires a public IP. Deeper Connect provides a Decentralized Private Network (DPN) service allowing all your home devices to access any website by using the bandwidth of other Deeper Connect users, and by sharing its own bandwidth. Deeper Connect does not require a public IP to enable DPN service because the Trident Protocol can penetrate any firewall by doing NAT traversal. It has seven layers of security functions that are more powerful than other players.

How is this device different from Winston Privacy?

We integrate blockchain technology which by itself has security genes. It will also allow users to share idle bandwidth to profit. So our device actually has the functions of a decentralized virtual network, a next generation firewall with seven layers of protection, and a secure mining rig allowing people to protect electronic assets.

How does Deeper Connect compare with Syfer?

Compared to Syfer, Deeper Connect devices include more features such as tracker, ads, adult content, and malware blocking functions, which is more comprehensive than Syfer. Our device is also made of metal instead of plastic, while being smaller and lighter than Syfer (our minimalistic design makes it also aesthetically superior). Syfer’s throughput is less than 200Mbps while Deeper Connect Mini can get you up to 1Gbps.

Another main advantage of our device is that it is truly a plug and play device, with zero configuration; Syfer, on the other hand, requires users to do intensive registration work. Finally, Deeper devices can provide multiple tunnels by means of their Decentralized Private Network (DPN) design; Syfer only supports one conventional VPN tunnel.
