Online digital firm J2 Global has acquired VPN and privacy IP assets from infrastructure provider Stackpath. 

The deal was confirmed by an editor’s note on news site PC Mag (published by J2-owned Ziff Davis) within VPN-related content as a disclaimer to allay fears of potential conflict of interest.

The note states that IPVanish and StrongVPN are owned by J2 Global, which also owns some of the most popular tech brands worldwide thanks to an aggressive acquisition strategy.

J2Global, now a major VPN player

IPVanish is a well-known award-winning VPN service that now sits alongside StrongVPN and a slew of other smaller brands such as Overplay.net, Unblock-us.com and Encrypt.me (formerly known as Cloak).

The acquisition also brings a lesser known brand WLVPN.com which is a white label VPN service for other VPN providers such as VPNhub, the VPN service of Pornhub, and Namecheap VPN.

With a market capitalisation approaching $4.3 billion, a number of cloud services (Campaigner, keepitsafe,eFax,Vipre) and an online portfolio of specialist websites (Askmen, IGN, PCMag, Speedtest) that reaches hundreds of millions every month, J2 Global is well placed to reap significant financial benefits from the current digital transformation journey undertaken by thousands of SMBs worldwide.

The purchase of VPN and privacy related assets only reasserts its growing ambitions to become a major global SaaS (software-as-a-service) player for consumers and small and medium businesses.

Keeping Windows and your applications up to date is a vital element of cybersecurity, as it minimizes the time your systems are vulnerable to the latest exploits.

Many top applications can handle their own updates, but managing this can be complicated. You might need to allow multiple ‘update’ tools to run permanently in the background, for instance, each of which has to be set up and maintained separately.

Avast Business Patch Management replaces your current collection of individual updaters with a single straightforward platform, delivered as an add-on to any of Avast’s managed antivirus products (Antivirus, Antivirus Pro, Antivirus Pro Plus).

The service can check thousands of supported applications for updates, from 100 top vendors: Adobe, Autodesk, Citrix, Google, Microsoft (Windows and applications), Mozilla, TeamViewer, VMware and more (a PDF of the full application list is here).

You’re able to set up precise rules to define how the update process works, right across your network. You can have Avast Business Patch Management scan for missing patches on all devices at the time and frequency of your choice. Patches may then be deployed when it’s appropriate for the business.

You can further minimize update hassles by only installing the most important patches. Or you might tell the system to ignore some applications entirely, if that works for you, and manage them in some other way.

If you’re running a large network, the real benefit of Avast Business Patch Management could be the reports in its management console. In a click or two, you can view summary stats, highlight missing patches, drill down to installation failures, and more.

Unlike some of the enterprise competition, Avast doesn’t demand thousands of pounds for the service, or ask you to contact it for
