Sirius Computer Solutions has several projects in progress that are behind a firewall and must stay protected from external traffic. The company had tried a number of solutions on the market, as well as some in-house solutions — but the authentication pieces were not working the way they needed. Sirius Computer Solutions needed a secure solution that would prevent unauthorized access to the developer’s environment.
Even greater levels of oversight and network control. That’s Access Server.
“We used to use a modem connection, but it was very slow and had a lot of security and connectivity problems. We needed a better and stronger connection to allow the company to grow.”
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.
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.
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.
