A FULL-FEATURED SOLUTION TAILORED TO MEET YOUR VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK (VPN) NEEDS
OpenVPN is the author of the open source Virtual Private Network (OpenVPN) software, which has emerged to establish itself as the de-facto standard in the open source networking space. OpenVPN is also the provider of multi-platform OpenVPN applications across all OS platforms, addressing the market demands for Remote Secure Access, Access Control, and Cybersecurity — protecting businesses of all sizes, all around the globe.
OpenVPN Access Server
OpenVPN Access Server is a set of installation and configuration tools designed specifically for businesses. Access Server secures data communications, provides internet privacy and remote access for employees, secures IoT, and provides secure access to on-premise, data center, or public cloud resources — essentially creating a virtual private network. These tools come in a single package to simplify the implementation of a VPN remote access solution.
Access Server Key Features:
Economical licensing model based on the number of concurrent connected devices
Rock solid, hardened, and scalable VPN server that is easy to set up and manage
Ability to set up fine-grained access controls at user and group levels
Cloud Application Marketplace availability for AWS, GCP, and Azure
Support for both site-to-site and remote access virtual networking
Easy distribution of VPN clients and connection profiles
Access Server is free to install and use for a maximum of 2 simultaneous VPN connections, so you can try it without having to pay first. If you need more connections, the cost is a $15.00 license fee per connected device per year — all updates and 24/7 support included.
Provides Layer 3 virtual private networking using OpenVPN protocol. OpenVPN protocol uses SSL/TLS with client and server certificates to perform key exchange and mutual authentication. OpenVPN is firewall and web proxy friendly as encrypted traffic is tunneled via UDP or TCP.
OpenSSL provides the core for secure communications and cryptography. The crypto suite can be customized to suit your needs, the defaults are AES-256-CBC cipher for encryption, HMAC-SHA256 for authentication, Diffie-Hellman Group 1 4, and 2048-bit RSA key length.
Supports local user database, Pluggable Authentication Modules(PAM), LDAP, secure LDAP, Active Directory, and RADIUS
X.509 certificate PKI solution is built-in. Integration with external PKI is available
‘MAC address lock’ as an additional security method is supported
Multi-factor authentication is supported in various forms. For example, Google Authenticator is built-in, and two-factor authentication using smart cards, Duo Security, or other TOTP based token generator can be added as a plug-in
1 . The ability of the Client to execute code is dependent on the device's OS and required code execution privileges. Mobile Operating Systems are not supported.
2. This is an estimate. User capacity will also depend on the bandwidth consumed per user and the system's total available bandwidth. A typical server is considered to be one with at least an 8-core CPU and 8 GB of RAM.
