WireGuard® is a fast and modern VPN protocol that uses state-of-the-art cryptography. It aims to be considerably faster than OpenVPN. WireGuard® works directly on the kernel of your device’s operating system. For this reason, it can encrypt and decrypt data faster more securely reducing the risks of leaks compared to other protocols.
When it comes to encryption, WireGuard utilizes the best security standards. Some other benefits include: faster speeds, user-friendly and less battery usage.
At first, WireGuard was released for the Linux kernel, it is now cross-platform (Windows, MacOS, BSD, iOS, Android) and widely deployable. Although still under heavy development, it is already considered to be the fastest, simplest and most secure VPN protocol in the industry.
