Why DPC was needed
“Our organization had been trying to replace MS Direct Access for more than two years. As a smaller organization, we did not have SCCM or Intune deployed which made our AOVPN transition extremely difficult.
Last year, we spent several more months trying to make AOVPN work internally, then partnered with PowerON and Richard Hicks.”
How DPC helped transition from Direct Access to AOVPN
“The transition from Direct Access to AOVPN feels like it is geared toward larger organizations with enterprise level deployments. PowerON DPC bridged the gap to allow our organization to make a full, secure AOVPN deployment using Group Policy integration.
Under Direct Access we had remote computers tombstoning in Active Directory quite often. AOVPN with DPC’s configuration has kept our devices on the network. Devices stay healthy with Group Policy updates and are easier to support as they are now part of our extended network. We were able to implement AOVPN without a reduction in our security posture.”
