[prMac.com] Moraga, California - Independent development house, Rayner Software today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of NetShade 7.0, an important update to their Proxy and VPN utility app for Mac OS X. NetShade offers Mac users the ability to change their Mac's Internet address, allowing them to surf the web in complete anonymity, protect their data via encryption, access content not normally available in their country, and gain access to the new IPv6 Internet routing protocol.
NetShade is a valuable tool for any Mac or iOS user's toolbox, allowing them greater freedom as they access the Internet. The service offers security for users concerned about their personal information being exposed on the net, by both offering anonymity, as well as a high-level of security via data encryption, preventing third-parties from monitoring users' Internet usage.
Anyone who travels internationally on business, or are living away from their homeland, will appreciate NetShade's proxy server function, which allows them to access websites and other information that might otherwise be unavailable to them. This feature is especially handy for Netflix users who wish to access Netflix content from other countries.
The latest addition to the NetShade arsenal is full IPv6 Internet compatibility. IPv6 is replacing IPv4 as the basis of the Internet. Even if your Internet Service Provider doesn't offer IPv6 functionality, NetShade 7 can offer you an IPv6 address immediately, allowing access to content which is inaccessible via a proxy on IPv4.
"Online security is important, and NetShade's main function is to ensure Mac and iOS users can safely and securely access the content they need on the Internet, no matter where they are," says Rayner Software owner Tyler Rayner. "NetShade offers users the anonymity, and security they desire, while also opening up new content sources to them, via our proxy, VPN, and IPv6 services."

NetShade offers two levels of service. NetShade Proxy Server Access is only $19 per year. Proxy service and VPN access combined are $49 per year. Both levels of service offer convenient access to the NetShade network of servers. The Proxy Server option supports only the HTTP and HTTPS protocols, (web traffic). Adding VPN access works to route all Internet traffic through the VPN server, adding a strong level of encryption to protect it from the prying eyes of any potential eavesdroppers. Users can use VPN access when they need encryption, and the faster Proxy service when they don't. Neither service is restricted by any bandwidth caps or overage fees.

A user's proxy activity will never be used for any form of marketing. NetShade will only use the information recorded in activity logs for compliance with investigations related to credible reports of illegal activity being conducted via their proxy service.
