Connecting with Oriel Hernan Villalba Pinzetta

Like many other companies, CEDEC started using OpenVPN in 2020 when COVID-19 fundamentally shifted the world’s working environment. “The pandemic meant we could not come to the office, and we needed to facilitate access to our local resources,” says Villalba. “OpenVPN Cloud was really easy and fast to set up, two things we really needed in that moment.”

Of his onboarding experience with OpenVPN Cloud, Villalba says, “It was really simple. The documentation and set-up guides are easy to follow.” 

He also credits OpenVPN support in particular for their prompt service: “The support team was fast to answer support tickets and respond to questions not in the FAQ.” When asked to describe his experience with OpenVPN customer service, it’s undeniably positive: “Outstanding, fast, and resolutive.”

OpenVPN Cloud boasts an array of great features. But from Villalba’s perspective, the most impressive feature of OpenVPN Cloud is “the ability to easily set up the agents and even recognize our own DNS so I can allow access to any subnet.”

In hindsight, choosing OpenVPN Cloud was a massive win for CEDEC, and it definitely made Villalba’s life easier. “OpenVPN Cloud allowed us to set up a system we had not seen before very quickly when otherwise, it would have taken weeks of configuration for a non-cloud VPN.”
