OpenVPN Cloud Offers Low-Cost Secure Connectivity for Startups
The Cybersecurity startups need at a price they can afford
OpenVPN understands startups are a labor of love — with limited resources. No matter how lean you run, you still need secure connectivity to your network, apps (SaaS, on-prem, private), and devices. Cybercriminals don’t care about business size; large companies and small businesses face the same security risks and potential for cyber attacks.
According to the 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report, “...there are four key paths into networks and assets: Credentials, Phishing, Exploit vulnerabilities, and Botnets.” The report's authors added that, “No organization is safe without a way to handle them all.”
That’s why we offer five concurrent OpenVPN Cloud connections for one low monthly price.
If your startup or small business needs an affordable way to protect your network and sensitive data (e.g. IP) while providing secure remote access and maximizing venture capital funding via reduced IT costs, OpenVPN Cloud is the easy, low-cost way to get a scalable, fully managed and hosted cloud-based virtual networking platform. OpenVPN Cloud includes built-in security functions and is offered as a service. Unlike other service providers, OpenVPN Cloud allows you to securely scale your business while reducing costs and providing a seamless network experience for your distributed workforce and mobile employees.
Read on to learn how OpenVPN Cloud delivers the consolidated secure connectivity your startup needs without allocating most of your budget to security services and in-house security teams.
Resource Management and Consolidation
In 5 Big Challenges To Launching A Startup And How To Overcome Them, Forbes Senior Contributor Abdo Riani writes that, “The cost of launching a startup today is 1000% lower than it used to be twenty years ago. With open source technology and low-cost cloud-based tools, the barriers to launching a startup are at their lowest.”
OpenVPN Cloud is a low-cost cloud secure connectivity tool, and it’s built on the widely-adopted open-source OpenVPN protocol. This translates to savings for you because it reduces the need for expensive, complex networking hardware, and the staff required to maintain that hardware. We engineer our product to be user-friendly for admins as well as users, but if you encounter any issues, you’ll have access to 24/7 Email Support and our Self-Service Knowledge Base. The operations team is spread around the globe for 24/7 availability to ensure a rapid response. We similarly staff our support team for 24/7 support, even on weekends and holidays.
Another item that can consume a big chunk of your budget? Office space. Startups can benefit from the rise of remote work by forgoing costly office real estate, but employees need secure, reliable connectivity, and secure access to SaaS apps and resources. OpenVPN Cloud provides a secure, distributed, reliable, virtualized networking platform containing integrated, essential value-add network security functions. Plus, it has the flexibility to augment your security posture using add-on security controls implemented at the private internet gateway.
Because OpenVPN Cloud has built-in secure access control, advanced encryption, IP and domain routing, intrusion detection/prevention (IDS/IPS), cyber threat protection and content filtering, and firewall capabilities, it reduces the need for additional security devices.
