From the International Best in the Biz Awards the Wajam office took the gold award for Best Place to Work in 2015. Maybe it’s our pool table, maybe it’s being fed lunch everyday, or our great company team spirit, whatever it is, we hope to keep it going long into the future.

We haven’t received the physical awards yet, so instead on our awards shelf we have a place holder that really represents our office style well.

Great news for the Wajammers last week, the Wajam Free VPN team won Next Media’s 2014 Digi Awards in the mobile utilities category. This award honors Canada’s most successful digital media companies and practitioners, and is one of Canada’s most prestigious recognition program.

Every single day, we see how much the mobile team thrives to deliver the best possible experience to our mobile users. Huge kudos to Pierre-Alain and Heikki (developers), Miranda (designer) and Elazar, the leading light who nailed the acceptance speech.

It’s fantastic that such a prestigious prize recognizes their hard work. Here at Wajam, we are all genuinely proud of them especially considering the fierce competition in finals (AXS Maps, Voices and Yellow Pages).

They initially launched the app in March earlier this year, and we have seen it evolve so much in the past few months. Not only does the app provides users with free secure VPN access on the go – protecting users’ privacy and security, but it also provides the user with social results (from Facebook, Twitter, etc.) when searching the Web on Google, Bing, Yahoo! and more. And the beauty of it… it’s completely free!

Currently available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., New Zealand and Australia (and soon-to-be available throughout Europe), Wajam Mobile VPN app can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.

HOW VPN BENEFITS YOU

Secure your data. A VPN (virtual private network) secures your device’s internet connection to guarantee that all the data you’re sending and receiving is encrypted. Read this great article on Lifehacker on Why You Should Start Using a VPN.

Lower data usage. The Wajam VPN app also compresses your data, which may save you money in data usage.

Unlock US exclusive content. VPN acts as the intermediary between you and the website you access, letting you access exclusive content in other countries. For Canadians, this means that you will be able to access Hulu, PandoraSpotifyRdio and watch US Netflix.

RECOMMENDATIONS FROM FRIENDS

The Wajam VPN app also includes the Wajam social recommendation engine, which gives you access to results from friends while you search in Google Search on Safari, as well as on Apple Maps, Google Maps.
