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.

J2Global, now a major VPN player
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.
