OpenVPN Technologies, a provider of open source Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN, has launched a new product-licensing model available in AWS Marketplace. This would give any size company worldwide access to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution and provide employees safe and secure remote access to their private networks.
OpenVPN provides the ability to create a secured 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,” said Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN Technologies. “This change really fits with our blueprint for enterprise-grade cloud VPN services, targeting small to large enterprises.”
Through AWS Marketplace, businesses can pay as they go for OpenVPN products with no upfront costs or long-term investments. Additional benefits would include bundled billing options from AWS, automatic license activation, and the ability to scale resources and modify instances without affecting license validity. The company also supports OpenVPN Client software on Windows, MAC, Linux, Android, and iOS platforms.
“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.”
