OpenVPN Accelerates Next-Gen VPN Innovation and Business Momentum.

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.

Leostream Enhances Security and Management of vSphere Hybrid Cloud Deployments

Business Wire | January 29, 2024

Leostream Corporation, the world's leading Remote Desktop Access Platform provider, today announced features to enhance security, management, and end-user productivity in vSphere-based hybrid cloud environments. The Leostream platform strengthens end-user computing (EUC) capabilities for vSphere users, including secure access to both on-premises and cloud environments, heterogeneous support, and reduced cloud costs. With the Leostream platform as the single pane of glass managing EUC environments, any hosted desktop environment, including individual virtual desktops, multi-user sessions, hosted physical workstations or desktops, and hosted applications, becomes simpler to manage, more secure, more flexible, and more cost-effective. Significant ways the Leostream platform expands vSphere’s capabilities include: Security The Leostream platform ensures data remains locked in the corporate network, and works across on-premises and cloud environments, providing even disparate infrastructures with the same levels of security and command over authorization, control, and access tracking. The Leostream platform supports multi-factor authentication and allows organizations to enforce strict access control rules, creating an EUC environment modeled on a zero-trust architecture. Multivendor/protocol support The Leostream platform was developed from the ground up for heterogeneous infrastructures and as the connection management layer of the EUC environment, the Leostream platform allows organizations to leverage vSphere today and other hypervisors or hyperconvergence platforms in the future as their needs evolve. The Leostream platform supports the industry’s broadest array of remote display protocols, including specialized protocols for mission-critical tasks. Consistent EUC experience The Leostream platform enables IT to make changes to the underlying environment while ensuring the end user experience is constant, and to incorporate AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, or OpenStack private clouds into their environment without disruptions in end-user productivity. By integrating with corporate Identity Providers (IdPs) that employees are already familiar with, and providing employees with a single portal they use to sign in, the Leostream platform offers simplicity to users too. Connectivity The Leostream Gateway securely connects to on-prem and cloud resources without virtual private networks (VPNs), and eliminates the need to manage and maintain security groups. End users get the same seamless login and high-performance connection across hybrid environments including corporate resources located off the internet. Controlling cloud costs The Leostream Connection Broker implements automated rules that control capacity and power state in the cloud, allowing organizations to optimize their cloud usage and minimize costs, such as ensuring cloud instances aren’t left running when they are no longer needed. The Connection Broker also intelligently pools and shares resources across groups of users, so organizations can invest in fewer systems, reducing overall cost of ownership. “These features deliver a streamlined experience with vSphere and hybrid or multi-cloud resources so end users remain productive, and corporate data and applications remain secure,” said Leostream CEO Karen Gondoly. “At a time when there is uncertainty about the future of support for VMware’s end-user computing, it’s important to bring these options to the market to show that organizations can extend vSphere’s capabilities and simultaneously plan for the future without disruption to the workforce.” About Leostream Corporation Leostream Corporation, the global leader in Remote Desktop Access Platforms, offers comprehensive solutions that enable seamless work-from-anywhere environments for individuals across diverse industries, regardless of organization size or location. The core of the Leostream platform is its commitment to simplicity and insight. It is driven by a unified administrative console that streamlines the management of users, cloud desktops, and IT assets while providing real-time dashboards for informed decision-making.
