Kepard is a company that makes plug and play style VPN applications that allow users to create a secure online connection. Ideally, a VPN service protects users and companies from unauthorized monitoring as well as hackers. The company was founded in the year 2012 and much of its audience is made up of full time travelers and expats. Within not even a year of startup, the company expanded its market to both the US and Europe. Now, the company is a global leader in the industry. The company states it was founded by young and ambitious team members who saw a great opportunity in VPN service industry, and the features they offer customers are certainly ambitious.
The company’s price is one of the best in the business, since they include no setup fees, a one-time charge, and no auto renewals. They offer three plans: a one month term, a three month term and a one year plan. All of these plans offer the same features. A one-month plan is available for just $7. A three month plan is available for $19 and bring you a saving of 10%. A one-year plan is available for $35 with 60% saving.
Kepard offers 6 servers in 5 different countries around the world, and over 30 IP addresses. Kepard has servers in countries such as Canada, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and USA. The company also offers unlimited switches of servers, which is a nice feature, considering that some companies will charge for this option.
The company offers a variety of protocols to work with, including OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP/IPSec. Customers can use these protocols to transmit and receive data securely, even when using public Internet connections such as WI-FI.
The company offers 24-7 support at this time only by ticket support. The company support is based on ticket system to ensure a good tracking process to customer support.
Kepard does not provide a traditional no questions asked refund policy, unlike many other VPN companies. They don’t say anything about money back on their site, instead they advice you to use their Free service to see if it meets your requirements before paying for their service. The company also reserves the right to disqualify accounts (without refund) for individuals suspected of using the company for malicious purposes.
The company offers unlimited bandwidth on all plans. All plans have unlimited traffic possibilities. Some servers allow for torrent traffic while others do not.
The transfer speed is up to 100 Mbits on all hosting plans. Most users state that the company offers fast speeds, which essentially means that the connection is never slowed down by the encryption. The company also offers suggestions on how to make Internet surfing and networking downloading faster: using OpenVPN is best for security. The company suggests that cell phone units work best with PPTP, and L2TP/IPSec.
Kepard is supported by many modern systems, though the system must be capable of supporting L2TP over IPSec protocol. This means that you can use Android based mobile devices as well as iOS, which includes iPhones and iPads. Other devices that will work on the system include the Samsung Galaxy Tab, DDWRT, and most devices that work on WiFi routers. The company’s software is plug and play based, which is a unique feature all its own. Applications that work with the software include Opera, IE, Firefox, Spotify, Hulu, Chrome, Safari and Dropbox.
Kepard works with big name operating systems such as Apple Mac OS X (10.4+), Linux 32-bit systems (Ubuntu 8.04+ 32-bit), and Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7. (Both 32 & 64-bit work). Most programs will work and no slowdown is reported.
The company’s has maybe the best Free trial option out there. Trough referral program you can get up to 180 days of Premium VPN for Free. It is the identical service you will get when you buy. This is done with purpose to try their “real” service before buying it and knowing for what you are paying.
You can pay with for the service with credit cards such as MasterCard, Visa, American Express and also with PayPal. There are no real disadvantages to the company except in total number of servers and money back policy.
