OpenVPN (https://openvpn.net) has now made the OpenVPN Access Server solution available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This allows businesses to deploy high-tech cloud security with just a few clicks, paying only for the specific resources they use.
“Until now, customers have been setting up OpenVPN Access Server through a complex and manual configuration,” said Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN. “With the new integrated OpenVPN Access Server now available in the Azure Marketplace, launching new security tools is easier than ever before.”
The benefits are plentiful: First off, virtually anyone can launch and scale a fully-functional OpenVPN Access Server using an easy to setup interface. In addition, company employees or users can easily access resources on Azure through secure OpenVPN tunnels.
“OpenVPN Access Server gives Microsoft customers remote and secure connectivity to private cloud applications and resources, while matching the security controls and exceeding flexibility of more costly hardware or on-premise VPN appliances,” said Gary McCloud, VP of Business Development at OpenVPN.
OpenVPN’s networking solutions span public and private data centers and help lead the industry in next-gen secure and scalable communication services. Its open-source software is used by more than 100,000 businesses and has been downloaded by over 50 million users worldwide.
Ross Ortega, Partner Product Manager, Microsoft Azure Networking at Microsoft Corp. said, “We’re pleased that customers looking to extend their application workloads on Microsoft Azure now have access to OpenVPN Access Server. With OpenVPN Access Server, enterprises can provide secure remote access to their employees while taking advantage of the cost savings and agility offered by Azure.”
“Our customers have been asking for support on Microsoft Azure,” said Dinha, adding that OpenVPN has even created a step-by-step guide on how to implement the software to enable secure and remote access for companies big and small, worldwide.
