Challenge

Akari Software was installed on secure physical servers at different universities, but they were difficult to manage. If a problem arose, it could take time to determine responsibility.

Our team expanded globally and we needed a cloud solution. In 2013 we started using AWS for hosting the infrastructure and we were looking for a secure and easy way to access it remotely.

Solution

GoodAccess has a strong encryption and it also helps us comply with data protection regulations. It demonstrates to our customers that we can be trusted.

We access the same cloud infrastructure from 14 different time zones and work effectively as if we were in an office. Also perfect for home office during COVID-19.

GoodAccess simplifies managing the access rules. Only authorzed users can access data and service around the world with a few clicks.

Key benefits

GoodAccess is straightforward to use. We got a gateway with a few IPs to whitelist. We don't have to whitelist every member separately anymore.

And still we have the possibility to see who's doing what, where and when. It's used only in bad situations, but having it running in the background brings a peace of mind.

And a bonus is the really attractive price point. Finding a secure private access gateway for this price is very difficult.
