What is Access Gateway

UTunnel Access Gateway is a Cloud VPN as a Service (VPNaaS) that facilitates effortless deployment of Cloud and On-Premise VPN Gateways. With the Cloud option, gateway deployment is fully automated, allowing you to set up your dedicated VPN server with just a few clicks at a location of your choice. Alternatively, the On-Premise or Bring Your Own Server (BYOS) option enables you to deploy your VPN server within your Cloud VPC or On-Premise network.

The solution includes OneClick Access, a feature that enables policy-based, agentless Zero Trust Application Access. Additionally, it offers the capability to easily configure Site-to-Site IPSec tunnels between UTunnel Access Gateway and other network gateways, routers, and unified threat management (UTM) systems.

As a cloud-native solution, it seamlessly integrates with various cloud providers, ensuring unparalleled security wherever applications are hosted. Effortless user management is facilitated through integration with Identity and Access Management solutions, including Single Sign-On (SSO) and 2-factor authentication.
