Case Study: PMG

PMG is a global, independent company that provides omnichannel strategy, media, insights, and creative content production for some of the world’s most iconic brands. They are the team that helped the world’s top headphone brand reach 1.2 billion people globally through proprietary data and technology that created significant differentiation and competitive advantage. The company has been around for more than a decade with a customer portfolio that spans the globe — and their innovation inspires product features developed by the likes of Google and Facebook.

The Challenge

PMG employees often travel to meet customers. They need a secure solution to quickly access the company’s network remotely. The company tried to integrate Microsoft’s VPN, but that solution was not accessible on employee smartphones or Apple platforms — which made it extremely difficult for remote employees to get their jobs done quickly and effectively.

The Vice President of Product explained:

A good VPN is important because we’re often traveling to customer sites and need remote access back to the office. Working from home, even working from vacation sometimes, we’re just always connecting from different places and need a safe, secure, and fast connection.

Our Solution

OpenVPN Access Server supports a variety of cloud infrastructure providers, virtualization hypervisors, and physical devices. It is compatible with most operating systems — including Android, iOS, Linux, macOS, and Windows. The OpenVPN protocol itself is an open source standardized protocol with which the Access Server is compatible. Therefore almost all devices that support OpenVPN in some form will likely be able to connect to the Access Server. And there are a lot of products out there that support OpenVPN protocol. The major operating systems are all supported with our official OpenVPN Connect client software, and most open source and third-party commercial OpenVPN client programs and devices. That means the PGM remote employees can easily access network resources regardless of their device preferences. Whether employees are on their iPhones, Androids, laptops, or tablets, they can get the job done from wherever they happened to be.
