Connecting with Phil Van Veen

Warburn Estate uses OpenVPN Cloud to simplify their VPN requirements and set users up quickly and securely with a connection back to their network.

Prior to using OpenVPN Cloud, Warburn Estate used an in-house VPN server (Microsoft l2tp connection).

According to Van Veen, the transition to OpenVPN Cloud was a great experience. “The OpenVPN portal was easy to set up,” he says, adding that he appreciated the “smooth, quick user interface.” 

One major win in Van Veen’s eyes was the time savings. “Time is expensive in the manufacturing industry, therefore it is critical we buy solutions that are time-sensitive. OpenVPN absolutely delivers here! It is also very easy to configure. It was a very user-friendly onboarding experience.”

When it comes to stand-out features, Van Veen is sold on the flexibility of OpenVPN Cloud. He likes that he “can add multiple networks and have OpenVPN clients route to these networks flawlessly, without the usual routing issues due to configuration/compatibility issues, etc. It basically does it all for you, and you just need to specify the networks.”

When asked if OpenVPN Cloud has made his life easier, Van Veen’s response is a resounding yes. “100% yes! As explained before, the ease of use is out of this world!!”

Van Vees has nothing but praise for the folks working behind the scenes on OpenVPN Cloud. “It seems to us that OpenVPN has some skilled technicians building their softwares/portals,” he remarked. “These days, it’s hard to find a company that builds rock-solid user-friendly software.”
