The rise of remote work has been a game-changer for businesses worldwide. However, with this newfound flexibility comes the challenge of maintaining high-speed and secure connections for remote workers. Many organizations have relied on traditional VPN hardware to provide remote access, but as demand surges and hardware gets overloaded, performance bottlenecks become all too common. In this blog, we’ll delve into the issues related to managing and supporting VPN hardware, and how Cloudbrink’s software-only solution revolutionizes remote work connectivity.
The Struggles with VPN Hardware and PoPs Overload:
VPN hardware and Points of Presence (PoPs) are essential components of traditional remote access solutions. However, as remote work becomes more prevalent, these hardware-based systems often struggle to keep up with the overwhelming demand from dispersed employees. Overloaded hardware, network congestion, slow connections, and limited bandwidth hinder productivity and create a frustrating user experience. Moreover, managing and maintaining VPN hardware can be resource-intensive and time-consuming for IT teams.
The Need for a High-Performance Solution:
Enter Cloudbrink—a revolutionary software-only solution that addresses the shortcomings of traditional VPN hardware. Unlike hardware-based VPNs, Cloudbrink’s cutting-edge technology boosts individual user bandwidth significantly, unleashing up to a 30x performance improvement for power users. This performance enhancement not only benefits those users directly but also alleviates the strain on the old VPN hardware, leading to improved performance for the users who remain on the traditional system while companies wait for their VPN hardware to end of life. This also protects the investment made in legacy VPN technology for companies who do not need high performance for all the employees.
No More Hardware Costs or Management Overhead:
Cloudbrink’s cloud-native architecture eliminates the need for costly VPN hardware, saving organizations from the financial burden of purchasing and maintaining physical infrastructure. The solution’s seamless scalability ensures that as your remote workforce expands, you won’t encounter the hardware limitations or bottlenecks faced by traditional VPNs. With Cloudbrink, adding new users is a breeze, IT does not need to concern itself with designing more capacity, it comes automatically as new users are added. This makes growth and flexibility a breeze.
Enhanced Security with Mutual TLS 1.3 End-to-End:
Security is paramount when it comes to remote access solutions. While traditional VPNs can pose potential security risks (such as the recent Fortinet issues), Cloudbrink sets new standards for secure remote access. Its mutual TLS 1.3 end-to-end encryption ensures robust protection for data in transit, safeguarding sensitive information from prying eyes and its Automated Moving Target Defense (AMTD) mitigates generative AI attacks. This elevated level of security makes Cloudbrink stand out among VPN, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) solutions.
Elevating Remote Work Experience:
By adopting Cloudbrink, organizations can elevate their remote work experience to unprecedented levels. Employees no longer have to deal with slow connections and network hiccups that hinder their productivity. With Cloudbrink’s high-performance bandwidth, remote workers can seamlessly collaborate, access resources, and stay productive from anywhere, as if they were in the office.
As the world continues to embrace remote work, the demand for efficient and secure remote access solutions is at an all-time high. Cloudbrink’s software-only solution provides the ultimate remedy for the struggles faced by traditional VPN hardware. With its high-performance bandwidth, effortless scalability, and top-notch security, Cloudbrink empowers organizations to thrive in the new era of remote work.
