Client VPN Services at No Extra Charge
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-Based VPN with Certificate-based Authentication
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.
Self-Service IPsec Point-to-Point Tunnels
IPsec offers 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.
High Performance Throughput
IPsec Point-to-Point tunnels support up to 10 Gbps, while client VPN support to up to 1Gbps.
