Versatile Connection Protocols

Tailor your security with our range of VPN protocols. From the robustness of OpenVPN to the speed of WireGuard®, choose the protocol that best fits your needs for secure, fast, and reliable online protection.

  • WireGuard®  A free, open-source communication protocol. It is typically faster than OpenVPN (called UDP and TCP in the applications) and more flexible than IKEv2, making it a great option for securing user’s online activity.

  • IKEv2 (IPsec)  IKEv2 is a tunneling protocol, providing a secure key exchange session that is paired with IPsec to ensure data encryption and authentication. It is usually the fastest, but can be easily blocked.

  • UDP (OpenVPN)  This mode uses OpenVPN protocol. UDP is usually the fastest protocol to run OpenVPN on due to less data verification, but can also be blocked quite easily.

  • TCP (OpenVPN)  This mode uses OpenVPN protocol. Due to multiple data verifications it could be slower but it is much more resilient to bad network conditions and ensures stable connections.

  • Stealth  Encapsulates OpenVPN in a TLS tunnel via Stunnel. It is an OpenVPN tunnel masked to look like HTTPS traffic. Usage of this protocol is recommended if all other methods fail.

  • Wstunnel  Encapsulates OpenVPN in a WebSocket. Usage of this protocol is recommended if all other methods fail.

What is a VPN and why do I need it?

A virtual private network (VPN) is a commonly used method of securing communication over the internet. As opposed to a public network, in which data is transferred unencrypted, a VPN creates a tunnel between your computer and a private server and encrypts all communications that pass through it.

VPNs are a popular method of adding security to otherwise unencrypted communication between your computer and any web property. While VPNs have been in use for many years, their popularity has increased recently due to changes in privacy laws that dictate how Internet service providers (ISPs) and advertisers can use data they collect about your browsing history.

ESET VPN feature is part of ESET Security Ultimate. Learn more about ESET HOME subscription tiers.

How does a VPN work?

This process, detailed in our blog post on how VPNs work, enhances your privacy by making it harder for third parties to track your activities online and steal data. The encryption occurs in real-time, ensuring your information remains protected as you browse.
