Synology® VPN Plus Licenses to Remain Free

Taipei, Taiwan—September 15, 2021—Synology announced today that its VPN server solution for Synology Routers, VPN Plus, has transitioned to a permanently free licensing program.

"We first launched this program to support businesses worldwide during the initial phase of the COVID-19 crisis. Fast forward 18 months, and the trend is now irreversible. Working from home has become the new normal," said Rebecca Lin, Product Manager for VPN Plus at Synology Inc. "We think our users should continue to enjoy full free access to all the best VPN technologies that Synology has to offer.
