"Our whole company just moved to Twingate, and we are loving it!"
Usability was an issue with Perimeter 81. Some sites I needed to use on a daily basis were not accessible when I was connected to Perimeter 81, which disrupted my workflow. With Twingate, we are now also seeing much better network performance when connected compared to the previous solution.

We looked at several other vendors, including Perimeter 81. Twingate was the best match for us because of how simple it was to set up and how easy to use it was for users. The support and responsiveness we got from Twingate was also outstanding!
