Quotes From Members Comparing OpenVPN vs. Safe-T Software-Defined Access

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Provided the easiest UX for our end-users and had the greatest interoperability with all the operating systems we used, including but not limited to: iOS, Android, OS X, Windows, and Linux.The compatibility with almost any Linux operating system, and how easy it is to write scripts and generate keys for people to use and log in. I found it easy to deploy quickly.A valuable feature for us is its ability to see the new Citrix server as a local server within the company. And it allows us to test abroad.It can securely do remote product updates... just as if it was on our LAN.You can do local subnet blocking.Provides privacy and cryptography for my network communication.It allows our employees to work remotely across Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms.Highly configurable. You can create your own custom client installer and can rebrand the server-side program.

the security level is very high. After we tested it and checked all the security aspects of the product, we found that it's highly secure.If you want a very flexible system that you can easily integrate, and develop interfaces for it or plug-ins to other application environments, it's probably the most flexibleSafe-T is very good for users because it has plug-in for Outlook.It's easy to use over the web. A user who is not in the office can use it and securely insert files.

Cons
The upgrade path from older versions was more difficult than we wanted to tackle, so we ran an older version of the software for longer than I wanted. Patching, updating, and migrating to newer versions was a problem for us. That said, we were on a rather old version that I inherited yet it worked rock solid.If someone's key is not working, or if we had to remove someone's permission from it, or maybe an employee left the company and we had to take their key out, that seemed a little bit more complicated than it had to be.I think right now the GUI part of it is locked out behind the pay wall. It could use something that gives it a very basic, minimal, graphic interface for logging in, for the community version. That would probably be a good step forward.If we had to create something for someone who was not necessarily tech savvy, I had to set that up on their computer, I had to write "read me's" and other things so that they could install their client and then connect to the VPN by themselves. So it was hard to set up for people who are not tech savvy.I would like to see a simpler interface, so that we can make the connection between the local network using the LAN IP.I would be more happy with the idea of licensing to have a reduced price with longer, grouped, annual fees. We have a lot of other software that does the same thing. It's a little higher price if you're going with a shorter stint, but there's a reduction in price for three- and five-year contracts.They may have this already, but it would be nice to be able to get more notifications if a site drops unexpectedly.It would be nice with all these features, if they could send some examples of each one; just small sample scripts to look at and say, "Oh okay, I could expand on this." That would help us a lot.

One important thing that we haven't found in this product is the ability to provide a read-only view for documents. Also, the ability for the customer to add annotations to these documents.The Outlook agent is not working well for installing it in the entire office.

Pricing and Cost Advice
At one point I had to purchase addition connection licenses. I was very pleased with the pricing and licensing; so much easier than navigating the confusing jungle of Microsoft and Cisco licensing and pricing. That alone made the product a delight to manage.Begin with the community version and upgrade to paid one if the need arises.The product's pricing is good value, definitely. It is one of the best features, I would say. Evaluate the product before seeing which type of licensing is good for you. I think there is a good evaluation method available for OpenVPN, so you can just evaluate if it meets your needs. Then go forward with the right licensing policy.I would say the product's pricing is a good value. I would recommend to other companies to implement it. I've seen other software, in tandem with the service, to be very expensive.The Pro Edition has a reasonable price per user.It is free, you buy support.

Overview

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.

Safe-T’s Software-Defined Access is a multi-layered solution, addressing the applications and data access challenge in a hybrid cloud environment. The perimeter is ever expanding, with the introduction of remote access, IOT, BYOD and cloud services. By deploying Safe-T’s solution, you can now unify and streamline all your access and exchange systems and modernize your security perimeter on-premise and in the cloud. It protects and controls access by separating the access layer from the authentication layer, and by segmenting internal networks. This reduces the attack surface and mitigating the risk of external threats such as network DDoS, SSL based attacks, application attacks and more.
