The Globe and Mail reports that recent protests in Iran are giving a boost to two Canadian companies offering virtual private networks (VPNs) and other software that can circumvent government censorship and surveillance.
Ryan Dochuk, head of Toronto’s TunnelBear, said that the company’s software is being downloaded “en masse” in Iran.
Another Toronto-based company, Psiphon, has also seen a huge increase in downloads to Iran.
