CactusVPN Implements SoftEther Protocol

CactusVPN is introducing a new protocol to their online privacy service.  They recently rolled out a new protocol called SoftEther to their VPN servers in the United States, United Kingdom and Netherlands.  SoftEther bills itself as a faster alternative to the OpenVPN protocol.  CactusVPN is the first VPN service that we’ve seen offer SoftEther connections.  Members can download the SoftEther client from the CactusVPN site.

Here’s a quick summary of SoftEther from a related CactusVPN post:

SoftEther VPN protocol is an open source SSL/TLS alternative to OpenVPN and SSTP VPN protocols. It offers very high-speed and low-latency client access with low processor overhead.

Along with a longer explanation from the SoftEther VPN Project site:

SoftEther VPN (“SoftEther” means “Software Ethernet”) is one of the world’s most powerful and easy-to-use multi-protocol VPN software. It runs on Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD and Solaris.

SoftEther VPN is open source. You can use SoftEther for any personal or commercial use for free charge.

SoftEther VPN is an optimum alternative to OpenVPN and Microsoft’s VPN servers. SoftEther VPN has a clone-function of OpenVPN Server. You can integrate from OpenVPN to SoftEther VPN smoothly. SoftEther VPN is faster than OpenVPN. SoftEther VPN also supports Microsoft SSTP VPN for Windows Vista / 7 / 8. No more need to pay expensive charges for Windows Server license for Remote-Access VPN function.
