This is a VPN for a technical user. It's not the easiest VPN to use and, while very secure, the quirks and issues it has will frustrate your standard users. It's a great backup and secondary VPN option for me as a technical user, but I think for the average user I would recommend something a bit more friendly. For all you IT folks out there or more tech-savvy people, I would definitely recommend checking it out though!

OpenVPN
We used it to connect our two offices together. It aids in secure file transfer for remote users. Some of the 3rd party software is only allowed to run on specific IP addresses due to the license and this is a way that remote users can utilize that software without being on-site

Pros
Golden Frog
  • The speed you get is actually really good. I have connected it to multiple locations and very rarely had issues with slow speed.
  • There are multiple servers across different locations. So you always have a lot of choices.
  • Simple to use. The UI is really clean and easy to navigate. Works almost with a single click.
  • You also get access to the mobile version which works really nicely as well.
  • Good support. They were really helpful and responded quickly when I contacted them.

  • some times error logs are not clear
  • Configuring 3rd party apps can sometimes be problematic
  • Limited functionality for iPhone users, but I believe that is due to an apple issue.

Alternatives Considered

I tried a few alternatives (Cyberghost, Private Internet access etc) before settling on this. Of all the different options I looked into this one performed most reliably for me. It was also the fastest of the different options I tested. It was also backed up by good reviews online and solid support team. It is a little pricier than some competitors but I feel I get good value out of it.

We found OpenVPN to be more cost-effective vs Azure. In addition, it was easier to install, deploy, and manage
