Case Study: MachAlert
Don’t Let Downtime Hurt Your Business
Mach Alert is a fire station alerting (FSA) solution that helps dispatchers get first responders on the road to respond to emergencies. The solution was designed to provide state of the art functionality and reliability within the fire and medical alerting process. Their solution gives dispatchers the tools to get first responders on the road faster than ever before — while reducing stress and keeping their focus on getting the job done. Mach Alert allows for rapid response, seamless integration with existing communications systems, robust reliability, and expandability. The company has installed systems in more than 450 fire stations around the globe.
Mach Alert is installed in fire stations internationally, and with a growing customer base, the company needed a solution of its own. Rather than a solution to help expedite emergency calls, Mach Alert wanted more security for its data to ensure there were no breaches of information in its systems — and it needed a solution that was reliable to limit, or even eliminate, unexpected downtime. Mach Alert services literally help in life and death situations, so breaches or downtime just can’t happen.
Mach Alert wanted a VPN solution that was easy to use, reliable, and more effective with its business model. They also wanted something that could be used with two-factor authentications for greater end-point-authorization security.
Access Server runs on the OpenVPN protocol, which is one of the safest VPN protocols available today. Because OpenVPN is open-source, independent developers and cybersecurity researches are constantly testing the VPN protocol and implementing improvements. Once a new threat arises, open-source software is the first to receive the patch. This makes OpenVPN Access Server an incredibly secure and reliable VPN solution — so Mach Alert doesn’t have to worry about unexpected downtime or breaches causing problems.

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.
Case Study: CranstonIT
The company previously used VPNs associated with their clients firewalls, but found that those solutions were often difficult to configure, and challenging to integrate with other directory services that they wanted to use with their clients.
Case Study: 3DCart
Access Server accepts incoming connections only if that device and user has the correct certifications. With OpenVPN Access Server, 3DCart communications are secure; outsiders can’t eavesdrop or spy.
Case Study: HVAC Elements Group
The company needed to provide secure access over the Public Internet to important internal resources — but the number of employees needing remote access had grown substantially, and their existing process of whitelisting IP addresses was no longer sustainable.
