OpenVPN Technologies Inc. has launched a new product licensing model available in Amazon Web Services Marketplace (AWS Marketplace), giving any size company worldwide access to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution. This provides employees safe and secure remote access to their private networks. 


Security and Privacy on the Cloud

Technology has created a plethora of connection choices and with this IT, pain points can arise for business owners, or anyone else trying to manage company-owned and private devices connecting in the office or at home. Employees working remotely need flexibility and typically use their own devices, including laptops, desktops, tablets and cell phones, for work tasks. They are connecting over home broadband or Wi-Fi hotspots, each presenting potential security challenges.

OpenVPN provides the ability to create a secure platform for all device connections across public or private networks and addresses the end point security risk. By encrypting and tunneling traffic with OpenVPN, customers limit the size of the user access area and the overall security footprint decreases. This makes monitoring and securing company resources more manageable.

“Expanding into new distribution channels like AWS Marketplace increases the OpenVPN geographic footprint, helping us to better serve our clients around the world as they migrate to the AWS Cloud. This change really fits with our blueprint for enterprise-grade cloud VPN services, targeting small to large enterprises,” says said Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN Technologies Inc.

“Customers today want not only the cost-savings and scaling benefits of shifting their network infrastructure to the cloud, but also secure management of their data,” said Barry Russell, general manager, global business development, AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services. “OpenVPN’s new licensing model via AWS Marketplace combines rapid procurement and deployment with an easy-to-use, cost-effective method to migrate and scale business on the AWS Cloud, while leveraging the security that AWS and OpenVPN offer via the shared responsibility model.”
