Suresh KotianEnterprise Architect at a tech services company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The features I have found to be most valuable are the levels of encryption I can enact and the compression I can apply to improve throughput."
"There is support for multi-factor authentication."
"It was very easy to set up users."
"I can say that it's stable and the performance is acceptable."
"The solution offers multiple OS support."
"If there was a Graphical User Interface to help streamline the configuration, I believe OpenVPN would probably venture more into the non-geek realm as it were."
"The security needs to be improved because it was a complaint that our customers had."
"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."
"Licensing includes things that my customers don't need."
"Lacks multiple cloud integration."
"With regard to setup cost, pricing and/or licensing, the simple answer is that you'll need to set aside some time to learn it and experiment with it."
