Protect your data across the public Internet with desktop virtual private network (VPN) software via a self-service, persistent network-to-network tunnel
Each account gets its own isolated client virtual private network at no charge, and users can manage their VPN settings (e.g. maximum number of connections, Microsoft Active Directory configuration options) and server.
Client virtual private network is based on OpenVPN and authenticates users with certificates. Two-factor authentication is available for customers with Windows Active Directory as their user repository.
IPsec offers the ability to create persistent, secure tunnels across a public network. The CenturyLink Cloud supports connections between networks (“gateway to gateway”) as well as connections between users on untrusted networks and their secure applications ("host to gateway"). Users can quickly provision a site to site VPN via the self-service Control Portal.
Remote users who need access to applications running on the CenturyLink Cloud platform. These users can run the OpenVPN client software on a variety of operating systems.
Use IPsec to extend customer networks to the CenturyLink Cloud platform without requiring client software.
Deploy backend systems to the CenturyLink Cloud platform while presenting a single network for end users to access.
