VPN without any issues
CarlStahl is a medium-sized enterprise specialising in producing stainless steel structures and lifting equipment for other manufacturers. Our company works with various systems and applications, such as attendance systems, CRM, electronic document circulation, project management systems, and CAD, located in our two main offices.
Previously, we only required a VPN for a few employees who travelled between branches and needed access to resources at both locations. However, even with a limited number of users, connecting to the head office resources proved challenging when more than two people logged in simultaneously. Connections often dropped, large file access became problematic, and this situation caused headaches for both our employees struggling to work effectively and our IT support staff addressing their concerns.
In the process of digitising our operations and migrating to cloud-based solutions with outsourced assistance, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic naturally led us to seek a more reliable cloud solution as our employees had to work from home suddenly. This prompted us to search for a dependable remote access solution to replace our old unstable VPN.
Key factors in our search for the perfect solution included a strong and stable connection with minimal IT support issues and reasonable and flexible pricing for active users, which would be a bonus.
Ultimately, we chose Shieldoo as our VPN solution primarily because of its innovative peer-to-peer technology. This choice perfectly fulfilled our needs. Our employees experience no issues connecting to office resources. By utilising the Single Sign-On feature, they can work efficiently, significantly relieving our IT support team. Setting up Shieldoo takes only minutes, and the user-friendly application allows our IT support staff to manage users and their access to various resources easily.
