CloudSigma and OpenVPN Partner to Provide Secure, Remote Access to Public Cloud Deployments

Designed for SMBs, Branch Offices and Remote Workers, New Software Appliance Provides the Same Seamless Access as On-Premise Infrastructure, but with the Ability to Leverage the CloudPalo Alto, Calif. ??? July 22, 2014 ??? CloudSigma, a public cloud IaaS provider with advanced hybrid hosting solutions, today announced that it has partnered with OpenVPN to develop a software appliance that enables the rapid deployment of OpenVPN Access Server within CloudSigma???s public cloud. Now, CloudSigma customers have secure, remote access to their cloud resources from anywhere on any device via this enterprise edition of OpenVPN.Similar to CloudSigma???s private patching technology for enterprises, the CloudSigma OpenVPN appliance gives SMBs and remote workers secure access to their public cloud deployments and resources without having unencrypted traffic traverse a public IP line. By connecting to the VLANs within CloudSigma???s public cloud, customers don???t have to expose their services over the Internet, and can instead use the VPN service to grant remote workers and branch offices more secure access. The CloudSigma OpenVPN appliance provides a bridge between a company???s on-premise servers and those within CloudSigma???s public cloud ??? whether they are connected to the VLAN or an external network ??? to offer a seamless compute environment.???Not many cloud providers allow customers to have servers residing on their internal network,??? said Robert Jenkins, CEO, CloudSigma. ???But, by allowing direct connections to our VLAN, we are creating a more secure compute environment that is as easily accessible as on-premise infrastructure, but with all the flexibility and scalability of a public cloud. Via the new OpenVPN software appliance, customers can encrypt their data in motion as it???s sent through from our cloud locations on to customer access points. There are geographic routing advantages also. For instance, they can essentially choose to route their data through our Swiss location for added protection against U.S. data privacy and access laws.???The CloudSigma OpenVPN appliance also gives IT departments the ability to better control or limit access to company data, which can be done easily through the Access Server administrative user interface and granular access control features. This is increasingly important for corporate compliance purposes, especially amid growing remote worker trends and the BYOD movement, and can be done with any Windows, Mac OS X, iOS or Android device.???The CloudSigma OpenVPN virtual appliance is extremely convenient as users can be up and running with their own Access Server in mere minutes ??? and on their own network,??? said Francis Dinha, CEO, OpenVPN Technologies, Inc. ???There are many VPN services out there, but the majority make customers use the provider???s network whereas we allow users to connect their machine directly to their own network, providing more secure and controlled cloud connectivity and resource management. Together with CloudSigma???s high quality, innovative cloud platform, our award-winning OpenVPN software is advancing remote access capabilities for today???s agile business environments.???For more information, please visit: https://www.cloudsigma.com/landing/private-openvpn-server-in-the-cloud/.
