Case Study: DevSquad
A Better Alternative to Usernames and Passwords
DevSquad is a large company headquartered near Salt Lake City that provides tailor-made and innovative on-demand software. They possess broad industry knowledge and have proven themselves in a wide range of projects — from computer vision to industrial printers, and from product prototyping to regression testing. They are always up for a challenge and are passionate about developing great software. With over a decade of experience, they are definitely a force to be reckoned with in the tech industry.
With headquarters located in Utah, the company's remote workforce connects from all over. The company needed a solution to provide its team with secure ways to connect to corporate servers and client servers. As a security-conscious firm, they set up a bastion host to provide access, but without a reliable VPN, DevSquad relied on a community username/password system — that was not as secure or effective as they wanted.
DevSquad recognized that despite training and policies, some employees just won’t choose strong enough passwords, and they needed a better way to ensure the people accessing the network were who they said they were. The company started looking for a new solution to securely connect their remote workforce while providing easy ways to implement access control and end-point authorization measures such as two-factor authentication.
“What I most like about OpenVPN is that it's easy to setup and use, and we can easily enable 2FA for all of our clients and employees. If you need a simple and secure VPN, you should use OpenVPN.” - Marcelo Domingos, CEO of DevSquad

Case Study: REDspace
For several years, the company invested in a Windows-based VPN server solution. The solution was not customizable, and it could not be integrated with their Active Directory — which meant there was no easy way to manage the individual users on their team of 200 employees.
