Several companies have already announced that they will reform their afterhours by never or just partly coming back to office. Flexibility will change working culture all around the world, but organizations’ IT systems need to be ready for that. Softline offers several Microsoft solutions to remote working from SMB to multinational organizations. One of the best and easy-to-manage solution to provide access to corporate data and applications for your remote users without any extra infrastructure, is Microsoft Always On VPN.
Secure remote access is one of the key components of remote work and empowering the mobile workplace. Always On VPN is the replacement for Microsoft’s DirectAccess remote access technology and helps to provide the encrypted and secure private tunnel via Internet from any place to corporate data and applications. It is an easy-to-manage solution that provides access remotely without any extra infrastructure. For IT staff it helps to control the access for different groups of users and nominate the access based on Active Directory access lists. Always On VPN is designed to be implemented and managed using a Mobile Device Management platform.
Always On VPN has several benefits. Always On VPN is a Windows 10 feature that enables the active VPN profile to connect automatically and remain connected based on triggers—namely, user sign-in, network state change, or device screen active. The technology has advanced security capabilities to restrict the type of traffic, which applications can use the VPN connection, and which authentication methods you can use to initiate the connection. Always On VPN allows administrators to specify routing policies at a more granular level and supports both IPv4 and IPv6 that results in improved network performance and application compatibility. It is infrastructure independent, which enables deployment flexibility, while changing the system to VPN infrastructure is much less disruptive to clients in the field. The elimination of Network Location Server (NLS) provides better and more reliable connection.
Softline has supported several organizations integrating Always On VPN through all the steps. First is the plan of Always On VPN deployment, then comes the configuration of Always On VPN server infrastructure and configuration of the Remote Access Server. Following the installation and configuration of NPS Server, configuration of DNS and Firewall Settings, configuration of Windows 10 Client Always On VPN Connections, finally if necessary the configuration of conditional access for VPN connectivity.

Hybrid work has become the new normal for organizations, and for many of them the process of moving workloads to cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) quickly and with minimal changes was a valuable tactic to speed cloud adoption. Migration unlocks innovative practices as organizations adopt cloud IaaS technologies and cloud operations models, which pave the way for further innovation by modernizing with PaaS and fully managed services. In this article we summarize Microsoft’s ebook about cloud migration and modernization journey to Microsoft Azure.
