A Cloud-based Virtual Networking Platform with Unmatched Ease of Use, Usability, and Functionality
OpenVPN Cloud is designed to deliver ease of use and usability in equal measure. This ensures it’s not just easy to use, but also helps you get up and running, operating your network, and immediately delivering value.
ZTNA or Zero Trust Network Access is a network security model that operates on 3 core principles:
- Always verify – Do not assume an entities identity
- Least privilege – Give access to only the resources the user, device, or application should have
- Assume breach – A proactive approach to network security that includes reducing the attack surface and isolating potential threats
OpenVPN Cloud allows Owners and Administrators to:
- Use SSO Authentication with LDAP, and SAML to connect to their WPC.
- Limit access to only specific resources by configuring access controls to select User Groups, Networks, or Hosts with Access Groups.
- Provide access to applications using domain names instead of the network to reduce your attack surface — eliminating lateral movement to other network resources from potential threats.
In OpenVPN, an Access Group is a configuration control that specifies the access relationship between Sources (i.e. Who?) and Destinations (i.e. What?). Sources are either the Users belonging to specific User Groups, Networks or Hosts. Destinations can be set to :
To configure an Access Group, sign in to your OpenVPN Cloud administration portal OpenVPN Cloud.
Navigate to Access. Click Create Access Group. enter the access group name and description. Select the source and destination mapping, and click Create.
OpenVPN Cloud creates a virtually dedicated worldwide private network exclusively for your use. This virtual overlay network is called a Wide-area Private Cloud (WPC). The WPC is identified with the Cloud ID. This network is dedicated to connecting your distributed applications, private networks, and users while providing the built-in security services for IDS/IPS, Content filtering, firewall, and access control. See, Wide-area Private Cloud (WPC) | OpenVPN Cloud.
A Setup wizard is a tool that simplifies a configuration process. OpenVPN Cloud has three such Setup wizards located within the administration portal:
- Shield Setup wizard: Located in the Shield module of the administration portal, this tool streamlines the Domain Filtering and Traffic Filtering configuration process by grouping granular configuration details into a high-level, easy-to-use template
- Network Configuration wizard: Located within the Network module of the administration portal, this template helps guide the user through creating and deploying a Connector to a private network connected to a WPC based on the use case for connecting that network
- Host Configuration wizard: Located within the Host module of the administration portal, this template helps guide the user through creating and deploying a Host to a private network connected to a WPC
A VPS or Virtual Private Server is a dedicated hosted virtual machine offered as a service to an end user.
