What’s the difference between CloudConnexa and Access Server?

OpenVPN® Inc. offers two secure networking solutions for small, medium, and enterprise businesses. CloudConnexa™ provides secure communication between an organization’s distributed workforce, IoT/IIoT devices, and the online services they rely on daily, with a secure virtualized network offered as a service. OpenVPN Access Server, our self-hosted solution, simplifies the rapid deployment of a secure remote access solution with a web-based graphic user interface and built-in OpenVPN Connect Client installer.

Both products are based on the market-proven OpenVPN protocol and trusted by some of the world’s most renowned brands for their unmatched flexibility, scalability, and ease of use. 

MSPs may find CloudConnexa preferable due to simpler access, configuration, and ability to toggle between clients without needing to login to a separate server. Additionally, CloudConnexa users can access our Cyber Shield feature. This built-in feature of CloudConnexa is an easy-to-use, customizable IDS/IPS and Content Filtering feature that protects remote access.
