I would like to see a statement re Prism and NSA
With all the fears and controversy surrounding the Snowdon revelations, and with Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Microsoft and other corporate giants being forced to admit that they have been assisting the government and the NSA in their spying activities, I have to ask myself, what chance does a relatively small company like Golden Frog have to resist that same government pressure.
I would like to see a Prominent Link on your home page to a very definitive statement that your servers are NOT, and never have been, Zombies for the US Government. I would be even happier for you to declare that you would shut down your company before you would bow to government pressure.
We all know that encrypted packets are of special interest to Government Snoopers, so it would seem to me that companies like yours would be a prime target for secret warrants and other spooky spy stuff.
I worry that you folks just don't have the size or power to resist such a government assault, so I wonder how you can assure me that your company has not already been compromised? At the moment, I have serious trust issues.
After the Snowden and Prism news, we wrote a blog post on the matter.
“Golden Frog is not part of PRISM. We run 100% of our own infrastructure and do not rely on third party hosting providers. We provide a higher level of protection for our customers than other VPN and Cloud Storage service providers that may have been compromised by this program.”
