OpenVPN Accelerates Next-Gen VPN Innovation and Business Momentum.

OpenVPN Inc. | September 02, 2021

OpenVPN, a leading global private networking and cybersecurity company, announced that businesses are rapidly adopting the company’s next-generation virtual private network (VPN) solutions to adapt to the changes in work and adoption of cloud accelerated by the COVID-19 global pandemic. Over the past 18 months, the company, at times, experienced as much as 70 percent growth, which, according to market research firms’ projections, was four times faster than the expected market growth rates. Adoption of its OpenVPN Cloud solution is growing even faster at 50 percent quarterly growth in monthly recurring revenue (MRR) over the last quarter. This rapid customer growth comes as businesses shifted IT priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic to best support remote workforces and accelerate digital strategies for growth, as well as expanding investment in the cloud.

OpenVPN introduced its next-gen OpenVPN Cloud solution in May 2020 to help businesses of all sizes to quickly, easily, and cost-effectively connect private networks, devices, and servers to build a secure, virtualized modern network--without the need for complex and expensive proprietary hardware (routers, firewalls, and other traditional approaches). For organizations that use or plan to use Zero Trust Access (ZTA), Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Software Defined Networking (SDN), next-gen VPN is a critical layer that supports and accommodates these approaches. To support the adoption of its OpenVPN Cloud solution, the company continues to increase the number of worldwide PoPs. In addition, to support current and future growth, and add innovative and differentiating features, OpenVPN is aggressively hiring the best talent worldwide.

“Sophisticated threats, regionally and remotely distributed workforces, work from home, the growth of IoT, and the move to the cloud make the old, rigid ways of connecting and insulating your assets obsolete. The days of legacy VPN as purely remote access or site-to-site are gone. Modern network architecture requires room for contemporary approaches to sit on top of a private networking foundation,” said Francis Dinha, Co-founder and CEO, OpenVPN. “Our continued and rapid growth can be attributed to our ability to help organizations secure the business at scale while providing a seamless experience even as priorities change whether it’s a pandemic, rapid rollout of digital strategies or accelerated cloud journey.”

OpenVPN’s Growth Trajectory More Than 4x Market Projected Rate
OpenVPN counts tens of thousands of businesses as customers around the world. The VPN market is expected to reach between $107.6 billion (ResearchAndMarkets.com) and $120 billion (Global Market Insights) by 2027, which represents a CAGR of between 15% and 17.2%. OpenVPN grew by as much as 70% during the last 18 months, which is four times faster than the expected market growth rate. In addition, more than 97% of its customers renew or expand the number of VPN connections. OpenVPN Cloud surpassed millions of connection hours per week, which represents 50% growth each quarter and is the company’s fastest growing solution since being introduced last year. In addition Cloud Service Providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud use the open source or commercial offerings from OpenVPN to enable secure access to its cloud services.

It delivers to its customers an elegant cloud-based solution with an adaptive and dynamic platform that can easily grow as businesses grow, whether connecting on-premises or to the IaaS cloud, which has attracted more DevOps and IT operations teams. OpenVPN Cloud helps businesses quickly, easily, and cost-effectively connect private networks, devices, and servers to build a secure and virtualized modern network. To make this possible, OpenVPN has vertically integrated technologies from advanced IP routing and secure access, threat detection and prevention, and firewall into its virtualized, mesh-connected, high-speed network platform with worldwide PoPs. The company continues to deliver enhancements to the platform with additional capabilities, including domain routing, Cyber Shield (DNS-based content filtering), and unique resource publishing and sharing.

NordVPN releases open-source VPN speed-test tool

NordVPN | January 14, 2022

Leading virtual private network provider NordVPN has developed an open-source tool and methodology that helps to objectively measure and compare the speed of different VPN services. The tool accounts for a broad array of testing use cases, allows users to add and compare different VPN services, and provides detailed reporting. Connection speed is one of the most important factors that affect user experience when they use a VPN. People want to secure their internet traffic without having to sacrifice speed. However, testing VPN speed meaningfully is a complex procedure because countless factors can impact it." Vykintas Maknickas, a cybersecurity expert at NordVPN Lack of a unified approach towards how performance is measured leads to the industry's current situation: different researchers via different outlets showcase different results ranked in different order. This conflicting information is bad for VPN users and providers alike. The confusion can make it difficult for users to make informed decisions. Likewise it can be hard for VPN providers to evaluate how their performance will measure up when they are working on improvements to their service and infrastructure. "A unified, standard speed-testing methodology would go a long way towards solving the problem for all of us. And that's what we're trying to achieve," Vykintas Maknickas adds. Community input and trust is crucial in order to reach the goal of having a standardized methodology. Therefore, NordVPN invites other VPN service providers, researchers, journalists, and tech enthusiasts to read the whitepaper, review the source code, and participate in the further development and refinement of the speed-test tool. About NordVPN NordVPN is the world's most advanced VPN service provider, used by over 14 million internet users worldwide. NordVPN provides double VPN encryption, malware blocking, and Onion Over VPN. The product is very user friendly, offers one of the best prices on the market, and has over 5,000 servers in 60 countries worldwide. One of the key features of NordVPN is our zero-log policy.

Nokia will Assist PLDT and Smart in Transforming Their Nationwide Network and Standardizing Virtualization Environment

Nokia | May 19, 2021

PLDT, the Philippines' largest, fully integrated telecommunications group, and its wireless subsidiary Smart Communications will use Nokia's Digital Operations software, cloud infrastructure software, and AirFrame servers to improve their nationwide network. PLDT and Smart will use the suite of solutions to standardize their virtualization environment for multi-vendor applications. The deployment, which is already underway, would enable PLDT and Smart's integrated network to increase agility, flexibility, and reduce operational costs and time to market while delivering new consumer and enterprise services, with the primary goal of significantly improving customer experience, delivery speed, and production cost. Nokia will use the Digital Operations software to simplify the management of network functions, as well as network- and customer-facing services, throughout their lifecycle. The solution will manage two interrelated flows as PLDT and Smart's interconnected network transitions from physical to virtual form. It will first be in charge of the network function lifecycle, from onboarding to runtime and finally decommissioning. Then it will make the lifecycle for orchestrating services and network slices across the network simpler, from design to deployment and assurance. This will enable PLDT and Smart to improve operational efficiency while still being more agile in their delivery of new market-facing services. Nokia will also standardize PLDT and Smart's Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) as the single NFVI for the implementation of various vendors' Virtualized Network Functions throughout the Philippines' South Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao areas. Nokia's NFVI cloud infrastructure and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core can be used to deploy applications, operations, and network management solutions. About Nokia We develop technologies that enable the whole world to work together. We are committed to innovation and technology leadership across mobile, fixed, and cloud networks as a trusted partner for vital networks. With the support of the award-winning Nokia Bell Labs, we create value through intellectual property and long-term research.
