Connection and Security
Because security is the biggest concern with any software, Gbridge automatically forms a VPN to the computers that are shown in your (computers) software. This software uses IPv4 ensuring complete encryption, mobility and provides authentication. This connection is P2P (Peer to Peer) and has great performance while extending excellent privacy. With Dynamic DNS and private IP addressing, this solves many connectivity issues and works with a majority of networks.
Gbridge is an extension of Google Talk (although privately held and not affiliated with Google) and is easy to use with an excellent interface that is easy to navigate and control. The interface is made for users of all types and is completely loaded with features and components that can be a great asset to businesses and home users.
With Virtual Private Networks and the security they provide, administrators can be assured their data is encrypted and kept private. Because the internet is loaded with malicious users sniffing and listening to data, this software offers the privacy needed to complete tasks from afar.
