HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ntrepid Corporation, a leading provider of cutting-edge managed attribution solutions, announced today that it will be transitioning all Anonymizer.com consumer anonymity accounts to InvinciBull, a set-it-once VPN (Virtual Private Network) uniquely designed to stream content and data securely and anonymously wherever you are located globally. Launched on September 12, 2018, InvinciBull evolved out of 20-year cybersecurity veteran Finjan Mobile, a subsidiary of Finjan Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNJN). Ntrepid will retain the Anonymizer domain name and pivot the brand to support business competitive intelligence activity for Ion, the company’s patented large-scale IP rotation system.
Protecting a consumer online is vastly different from protecting the identity of government and law enforcement officials as they hunt and gather intelligence. By transitioning these accounts over to the management of InvinciBull, Anonymizer users will have access to a product that more effectively meets their needs. InvinciBull was hand-picked by Ntrepid as a trusted partner that will uphold the same commitment to its users, and will take over providing VPN services for the duration of all existing Anonymizer subscriptions at no additional cost. The VPN service promises to be faster and provides an improved user interface and more exit points. To ease the transition, existing users will have one month to switch over their services to InvinciBull. Ntrepid will close down their service on November 24, 2018.
“InvinciBull’s mission of protecting devices from malicious content on the internet aligns extremely well with the Anonymizer story, and we are very excited to join forces with the Ntrepid brand to keep protecting their consumer customers,” said Michael Noonan, Management for Finjan Mobile. “Like Ntrepid, we believe that individuals deserve access to innovative tools and technology that protect their online activity on mobile devices. We are committed to serving Anonymizer’s loyal customers and providing them with the privacy and security features they have come to expect.”
Born from a deep commitment to making privacy and anonymity available to everyone, Anonymizer Inc. was founded in 1995 by Lance Cottrell as the first commercial internet privacy service in the world. Over the years, Anonymizer created the Kosovo Privacy Project; provided censorship circumvention services to hundreds of thousands of people in China and Iran; developed a secure, anonymous terrorist tip site in the first days following 9/11; has worked with numerous human rights groups to provide protected communications and safe access to information; and most recently stood up to Net Neutrality regulations to preserve the rights of internet users.
“I am extremely proud of the work Anonymizer has accomplished over the years. Since those early days, the landscape for consumer privacy has changed radically – modern tracking technologies have extended far beyond simple cookies and IP addresses, and users need protection on mobile devices now more than on desktops,” says Cottrell, Chief Scientist at Ntrepid. “InvinciBull stood out as our first choice for a partner to continue our VPN service, and we have the highest confidence in them. Knowing that our consumer users are in good hands, Ntrepid looks forward to focusing more energy and creativity on high-end solutions and specialty services for government and enterprise users.”
Over the last decade, Ntrepid’s focus has shifted to developing cutting edge technology to defeat the most sophisticated online tracking and surveillance capabilities, especially for the national security community. A growing focus on their Ion product, which enables users to collect business intelligence without being detected, identified, blocked from viewing the site, or redirected to misleading data, will support any use case where misattribution is necessary.
