Linux-loving Ghosties, we have some excellent news for your: our updated CyberGhost VPN for Linux app is here!
And it now comes with WireGuard® capabilities. 😉
This is a fairly new VPN protocol, still labeled as a work in progress. It aims to marry the security of the OpenVPN protocol with the speed of (the now easier to block) IPsec.
When it comes to encryption, WireGuard® is all about the strictest security standards. It also comes with some extra benefits like faster speeds, more user-friendliness, and less power usage.
The beginning of a beautiful friendship
Here at CyberGhost VPN, we’ve been paying close attention to the development of WireGuard®. And we must confess, we’ve been impressed with the protocol’s performance.
So, we’ve decided to integrate it and get involved.
Our team will be performing code reviews and adding to the functionalities in the near future.
All because we want to give you the best possible VPN protection, no matter your device or OS of choice.
What else is new in the app
You can now find five additional distros and distro versions in our CyberGhost VPN for Linux app:
- Fedora 31
- Mint 19
- CentOS 7

Leave a comment below and let us know. We’ll plan our development accordingly. 😉
