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 Cloud

Palo 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."

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...
