Secure Core’s architecture coverage is growing!

Posted on October 15th, 2018 by in Service Updates.


Our Secure Core architecture is now available in 12 new countries, expanding its coverage to 23 countries in total.

Our Secure Core architecture routes user traffic from your device through one of our hardened Secure Core servers and then to an exit server located in your desired country. We have taken extra precautions to ensure that our Secure Core servers have never been tampered with and installed them in high-security data centers located in countries with strong data privacy laws. That way, even if an advanced network attack allows an adversary to monitor traffic at one of the exit servers, they will only be able to trace your traffic back to the edge of our Secure Core network, protecting your device’s true IP address.

This advanced security will now be available with IP addresses from 12 new countries, letting more of our users access our most advanced online protection.

The new Secure Core exit servers are located in:

Czech Republic
South Africa
South Korea

Existing Secure Core servers are:

Hong Kong
United Kingdom
United States

These new countries will appear in your ProtonVPN app as options when you activate the Secure Core feature. No matter where you are, ProtonVPN has a Secure Core server nearby to give your online data maximum protection.

Best regards,
The ProtonVPN Team

    Any chance of secure core exit for Switzerland???

  3. Richie

    Hello! The architecture of Secure Core is built in the way that the traffic firstly go through one of our Secure Core servers based in Sweden, Switzerland or Iceland and the second layer passes through the nod of the country of your choice. Secure Core servers are fully owned by us and also provisioned by us, so for general security, it is completely well to connect to a single (standard) server, thus in your case we suggest to connect straight to Switzerland.

    Do you planing to add new server(locations, not only core) in Europe. For example in Romania, Bulgaria or Russia? If yes, when you planing to do it?

    Hello! Currently we are investigating more deeply into whether or not we can feasibly offer a secure solution for connection in these countries. We may add some servers there in the future, however no exact date for that just yet.
