Connecting with Zach Belhadri

According to Belhadri, OpenVPN Cloud provides secure access for Knight Capital’s remote employees to their corporate and cloud resources.

Prior to using OpenVPN Cloud, Knight Capital used a Barracuda VPN solution.

According to Belhadri, the transition from Barracuda to OpenVPN Cloud was a very positive one. “It was awesome! Support always replies on time to all our requests and always provides a timely solution,” says Belhadri.

When asked what the best feature of OpenVPN Cloud is, Belhadri isn’t able to name just one. He says he appreciates the Host and Connector configurations, and how OpenVPN Cloud allows Knight Capital’s servers to connect directly to the WPC. He also mentions the benefits of Cyber Shield and its effectiveness at “preventing malware, phishing, and other threats by restricting access to only authorized and trusted internet destinations.”

When asked if OpenVPN Cloud has made his life easier, Belhadri’s response is a resounding yes. “It is an awesome product with huge potential,” he says. “It is fast, reliable, and very clean.” And he especially appreciates the user-friendly UI.

"OpenVPN Cloud is an awesome product with huge potential... It is fast, reliable, and very clean.”
