Torguard is not related to the Tor Project but has it’s name form torrenting, as they were one of the first VPN providers to allow torrent traffic.
The fact that Torguard has been around for a long time can be seen from the impressive size of their network. Among the list of countries where Torguard has serves you will find India, countries in Africa, and countries in the Middle East. Nations that are often ignored by many other VPN providers. Torguard assures that they don’t use virtual servers. A physical server can run several virtual servers, but you will not be able to get more performance than the hardware allows, and with multiple virtual servers there will be some overhead to manage each virtual server.So TorGuard sticks to physical servers for maximum performance.

One of their unique technologies is their stealth technology that hides that it is VPN traffic and therefore lets you bypass strict VPN blocking attempts. An excellent way to test this is to try to use it with Netflix. We tested it and it turned out it works perfectly so they are right in their claims that the service is ideal for streaming.

Torguard offers a bunch of extra services which tends to confuse some when ordering so let’s try to keep it simple. Torguard offers a product they call Anonymous Proxy. This product is first of all interesting if you download a lot, particularly on the torrent network. So it’s uses are very specific. What we want is an anonymous VPN product. They also have a business package but it is only interesting if you are a business. Their Anonymous Email can be a great addition to their VPN solution as it protects your emails.
During the ordering process, you can add different types of IP addresses, like streaming, betting, or just a regular fixed IP. If you are a gamer, you will probably be interested in the DDOS protected gaming IP.
Their apps let you tweak the connection in almost any way you like which will be great for some but a bit annoying if you just want to get started.
Torguard is really worth considering a try if you need an all around security solution that will keep you safe and let’s you enjoy all the benefits of a VPN solution.
