VPN Replacement

Twingate enables employees to remotely access the office network, cloud VPCs, and other private corporate resources from their computers and mobile devices.

Benefits of using Twingate instead of a VPN

  • Better, more modern security. In contrast to VPN gateways, Twingate’s architecture does not require any open network ports to work, eliminating a common vector for attacks from the public internet. VPN gateways need to be rigorously patched to protect them from frequent vulnerabilities. Additionally, Twingate provides more granular application-level access controls instead of the wide, network-level access that VPNs expose. This reduces the risk of lateral movement attacks and keeps your network and resources hidden from the public. Twingate can also provide additional protection for third party SaaS apps with multi-factor authentication and device posture checks - something not possible with traditional VPNs.
  • Low risk, rapid deployment. Twingate can be deployed in under 15 minutes with a lightweight Connector component, deployed on a single host within a network. There is no hardware to procure, or network configurations to change. Twingate can be tested without having to rip out an existing VPN solution, and integrates with popular Identity Providers like Okta, JumpCloud, Entra ID (formerly Azure AD), OneLogin and Google for a fast end-user rollout.
  • Easy maintenance. Admins use a central Admin Console to manage user access to protected resources and monitor access activity. Support for solutions like Terraform, Kubernetes, and Pulumi allows administrative actions to be automated. End users can quickly download, install, and use the Twingate Client without any technical knowledge or help from IT teams.
  • Fast performance for distributed work. Unlike VPNs that are “full tunnel”, meaning all traffic is indiscriminately passed through a VPN gateway and into a corporate network, Twingate is “split tunnel” by default, meaning only traffic that needs to reach internal resources are routed to the corporate network.
