ChallengeOver 20 million people from 190 countries use the Hotspot Shield VPN clients. The project is so massive and complex that it requires a large team of professionals to work on it. Several teams work simultaneously at the server side, improve the traffic tunnelling protocol, support multiple applications and ensure that company users are safe. But even all these efforts are not enough to offer all the desired functionality to the customers. The customer was not meeting the deadlines, so they came to our company and requested a dedicated development team that would quickly join the process and solve some important project tasks.
The main decisive factor for me when choosing Sibedge was the direct interaction with the company’s management, as well as their responsibility and ability to set up all the processes quickly and transparently.
Sibedge specialists demonstrated flexibility and high readiness to solve all kinds of tasks and problems throughout the project. What I value most of all in a partnership is trust, commitment, and professionalism. The Sibedge team fully possesses these qualities.
ResultThe tasks were properly distributed among the development teams which helped us to achieve excellent results on all fronts. Easy-to-use mobile applications for iOS and Android, as well as desktop clients for Windows and macOS were developed. Our engineers significantly improved the client and server parts of the VPN tunnel, modified software for third party vendors and implemented server deployment and support. The NOC teams managed to improve infrastructure stability and service effectiveness. Our participation in the project helped the customer to focus on promoting the product instead of wasting time on finding qualified developers and building the production process. Successful collaboration laid the foundation for long-term cooperation between our company and the customer.
