Picture this: a growing web content publishing company provides content for high-traffic websites and portals.

A majority of their employees are freelance and/or remote, so they use OpenVPN Access Server to provide VPN access to their HQ corporate network systems, which run the publishing workflow, timekeeping, and payroll services.

They have plans to expand worldwide and adopt SaaS tools — like Adobe Creative Cloud — to replace some of their legacy systems.

The problem is, as the number of their employees grows, it’s becoming more and more difficult to maintain user accounts in local OpenVPN Access Servers — and complexity will only increase as they add new locations.

So how exactly can this company:

  • Centrally store employee information?
  • Manage access between employees and contractors?
  • Simplify login for their team?
  • Make sure their data remains secure as their team grows?

The answer? OpenVPN Access Server combined with JumpCloud’s LDAP-as-a-Service solution.


JumpCloud’s LDAP authentication system can be used to enforce secure passwords, add Multi-Factor Authentication, and secure SaaS applications. The Access Servers are then set up so that the contractors have limited access to services from the corporate network.

Combining this with OpenVPN Access Server means you won't have to sacrifice security for convenience – your team will get ease-of-use, but your network will be built on the strongest protocol in the business.

Plus, JumpCloud's service is a managed solution, so the IT department does not have to install, maintain or grow the LDAP servers or the rest of the directory infrastructure – it’s all built in!

All too often, a company’s network security is either too complicated — or ineffective.

But to truly be effective, it can’t be complicated.

LDAP + VPN combines the best of both worlds

Employees can use the same login info across the board — and security is stronger than ever.

LDAP-As-A-Service maximizes VPN security & simplicity

These two powerful tools combined can simplify – and secure – your network resources.

Do more for your team with LDAP + VPN authentication

Ease of use for your team and a powerful resources for IT.
