PureVPN has announced the introduction of “Split Tunneling” and the release of their VPN client software for Mac OS. The new VPN client software from PureVPN is available now for download from the PureVPN website. The VPN client software from PureVPN is designed to allow you to easily connect to PureVPN and manage your VPN connection. Features include: Auto-connect on computer startup, server suggestion tool, and a connection to support for submitting help tickets.
The server suggestion tool should be a welcome addition to the Mac users, as previously you had to test VPN servers manually. The new software will suggest a server to you based on load and speed so you should get much better performance from the PureVPN network.
› Intel or PowerPC processor (Universal binary)
› Mac OS X v10.4 (Tiger) or newer. (Mac OS X v10.5 (Leopard) highly recommended)
› 25 MB free disk space
The introduction of split tunneling brings PureVPN into a brand new area of VPN service. Although the concept of split tunneling is not new, it is rarely offered by VPN service providers. And even more rarely amongst VPN service providers who market to the home or small business. Essentially, split tunneling means only some of the data is sent via the VPN tunnel. This basically translates into a list of applications that must pass through the VPN tunnel, as implemented in the PureVPN software. This could be especially helpful for users looking to conserve bandwidth over the VPN, or anyone who was constantly switching the VPN on/off.
