In a year, Surfshark has grown from a concept to an acclaimed product. We are beyond proud to announce that we have won the Best Newcomer VPN 2019 award in the CES 2019 Award Ceremony. The event was held in Las Vegas by the industry-leading VPN comparison site BestVPN.com.

With new VPN services popping up left and right, we knew that the only way to success was to move faster than others would, and to pave our own way. Our formula was proven to be right, and we were nominated in 3 additional categories – Best Overall, Best Privacy, and Best Value VPN.

We are happy to be recognized amongst the well-established competitors who have been building their services for years. 2018 was a very big year for Surfshark, and we are planning to continue stirring the market and working hard to not only improve our service, but to set the bar higher for other VPN providers.

Here’s what we did in 2018:

The biggest accomplishment with zero doubt is the fact that we grew into a full-fledged service that is quickly gaining recognition industry-wide. That’s not just some marketing gimmick: we hired an independent audit company, Cure53, so that everyone can see whether it’s all just talk.

This audit, performed on our Chrome and Firefox extensions, has proven that we are able to make good on our promises. Here’s what they had to say about us: “To sum up, Cure53 is highly satisfied to see such a strong security posture on the Surfshark VPN extensions, especially given the common vulnerability of similar products to privacy issues”. You can read more about that here.

We have also released numerous new features, for example, an ad and malware blocker CleanWeb™. We developed new apps – such as our dedicated Fire TV Stick app. We got hundreds of servers all over the world. We fixed bugs and improved the apps every day.

In just a year, we were able to come from a completely new brand to the Best Newcomer VPN 2019. BestVPN.com hired a team of cyber security professionals who spent months deciding who to pick from hundreds of services available, and we have proven to be more than fit to keep up with the industry standards.

Here’s to a New Year – and let’s make it a real game-changer, for everyone!
