We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It was very easy to set up users."
"OpenVPN Access Server is cheap, and we get to use it ourselves. It is also a stable solution."
"There is support for multi-factor authentication."
"It is customer-friendly. It is quite easy for our users to connect. There is also the flexibility of the features."
"The most valuable feature is being able to securely connect and use virtual desktops."
"The high availability deployment is not very straightforward. They can make it simpler. OpenVPN does not support some of the additional protocols that Pulse Secure and Cisco AnyConnect support. They can include support for these additional protocols."
"The security needs to be improved because it was a complaint that our customers had."
"It is not scalable."
"We want to switch to another solution because there are some challenges with the support from Pulse. The quality of documentation is also not good. It is sometimes very hard to find documentation that provides a solution and describes how all this works."
"This solution normally works but at times, we have had trouble with connectivity."
"It is an open-source solution, so we don't pay for anything."
OpenVPN is an open-source software application that implements virtual private network techniques for creating secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access facilities.
