Having a good VPN is very important to Richweb because as a trusted service provider, they need to guarantee their customers will have safe and secure connections. They had used VPN products in the past — some commercial “off the shelf” solutions, some open-source versions. But Richweb needed a way to let their clients test-drive the VPN solution — but none of the products they had used gave them the ability to provide a risk-free trial period to their clients.
“Managed services is Richweb’s IT as a Service (ITaaS) platform. It means Richweb takes the burden of managing your IT infrastructure off your company’s hands, and puts it into ours. Through managed services, our company can bring an enterprise-grade IT experience to your business.”
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.
PMG employees often travel to meet customers. They need a secure solution to quickly access the company’s network remotely.
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.
OpenVPN Access Server provided DevSquad with an easy way to keep the company’s remote workforce connected. The company downloaded Access Server on AWS using Terraform, which made it easy for DevSquad to implement.
