Of late we have been using OpenVPN with our client Synerty PTY LTD. And we love it, not just because it’s opensource but also because it’s so easy to set up and run. Did we mention that its also free for up to 2 concurrent users? it sure is.
Why is a VPN and what does it stand for?
“A virtual private network (VPN) is a technology that creates a safe and encrypted connection over a less secure network, such as the internet. VPN technology was developed as a way to allow remote users and branch offices to securely access corporate applications and other resources.”
We highly recommend visiting the OpenVPN website especially if your network has been accessed externally by team members or external contractors like us. OpenVPN makes things that much more secure, and security is a major issue moving forward in the digital age. OpenVPN goes hand in hand with OpenVPN-AS virtual machine which makes the setup even easier.
