Contract with global tech distributor opens the door to 'big box store' placement of its portable Tor and VPN routers
CHICO, Calif., Oct. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers interested in Anonabox can currently purchase a privacy device on its revamped website—and soon at nearby retailers. Anonabox (which supplies Tor and VPN routers to maintain online privacy) today announced an agreement with Ingram Micro Inc., a Fortune 100 company that delivers a full spectrum of global technology and supply chain services to businesses around the world, opening the door for Anonabox devices to be sold in retail stores across the United States and abroad.
"The Ingram Micro agreement will help expand our reach and product availability, while elevating Anonabox's brand recognition as a privacy tool for the everyman, as well as those with a deeper knowledge of technology," said Anonabox CEO Marc Lewis.
Ingram Micro represents approximately 1,700 suppliers in the tech industry, including industry brands such as Apple, Cisco, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Samsung and Symantec, among others. Ingram Micro rose to No. 62 this year on the annual FORTUNE 500 list, reporting $46.5 billion in revenue in 2014.
The Anonabox privacy devices add a robust layer of privacy, encryption and anonymity to online browsing by routing the user's Internet traffic through the Tor network, over VPN services or both depending on the model of the device. The portable devices require no installation, and can cloak the user's physical location, offer easy access to the deep web, avert content filters, deter big data collection and bypass censorship blocks.
Anonabox also recently announced its partnership with HideMyAss!, employing its HMA! VPN Pro services to provide an added layer of privacy, encryption and anonymity for the end user of the devices.
