What is Microsoft Azure VPN Gateway?

A VPN gateway is a specific type of virtual network gateway that is used to send encrypted traffic between an Azure virtual network and an on-premises location over the public Internet. You can also use a VPN gateway to send encrypted traffic between Azure virtual networks over the Microsoft network. Each virtual network can have only one VPN gateway. However, you can create multiple connections to the same VPN gateway. When you create multiple connections to the same VPN gateway, all VPN tunnels share the available gateway bandwidth.

Microsoft Azure VPN Gateway is also known as MS Azure VPN Gateway.

Has good networking and is faster than other platforms but it needs better troubleshooting features

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the networking. I didn't have a good experience with the networking that Sophos has."
  • "I would like for them to improve the troubleshooting features. We have some problems with traffic and I can't identify where the problem is coming from. I have to open a ticket with support until it gets resolved. Microsoft doesn't offer enough tools to resolve the issue."

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the networking. I didn't have a good experience with the networking that Sophos has.

What needs improvement?

I would like for them to improve the troubleshooting features. We have some problems with traffic and I can't identify where the problem is coming from. I have to open a ticket with support until it gets resolved. Microsoft doesn't offer enough tools to resolve the issue. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Microsoft Azure VPN Gateway for three to four years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability depends. Sometimes I need to change the VPN Gateway for another tool like Palo Alto or Checkpoint because Microsoft isn't always so consistent. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I don't have any problems with technical support. They're very good. The problem is the platform doesn't have enough tools to resolve problems but if you contact support, they have the ability to resolve anything. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

On-premise, I worked with other tools but my principal work is with Azure. I worked with Cisco ASA and Fortinet. I studied Cisco but I didn't work with it in an actual environment.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very easy. It's not difficult. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven out of ten. 

It's simple to deploy, it's faster than other platforms, and it's scalable which is an important advantage. 

In the next release, I would like to see more troubleshooting tools. I would also like to see the connection to remain consistent. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

User-friendly, easy to deploy, and very stable

Pros and Cons

  • "It works perfectly for me. It is very user-friendly in terms of the configuration and the setup process."
  • "Their technical support could be better. If you don't have a support contract, it takes longer."

What is our primary use case?

We have servers in Azure, and we use it to connect the on-premises users to the cloud servers.

It is a site-to-site VPN deployed on our premise.

What is most valuable?

I'm using the high availability of the VPN. We are using the VPN Gateway with two different internet service providers on-premises. We are using high availability so that in case one of the internet services fails, we can get Azure to assist using the other service.

It works perfectly for me. It is very user-friendly in terms of the configuration and the setup process.

What needs improvement?

Their technical support could be better. If you don't have a support contract, it takes longer.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is easy to scale. We started with a basic plan, and we can move to another plan that has more bandwidth and more features. It is possible to do that.

How are customer service and technical support?

It depends. If you have a technical support contract with Microsoft, it is very easy. If you don't have it, it takes longer.

How was the initial setup?

It is easy to set up. The deployment process is very quick. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to set up a site-to-site VPN.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend this solution because it is very easy to deploy and very stable. It is very simple. It is only a VPN connection. It works for what it is made.

I would rate Microsoft Azure VPN Gateway a 10 out of 10.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
