Annual Pricing Launched on AWS Marketplace
July 15, 2014 (Pleasanton, CA): CipherGraph Networks today announced the availability of annual subscription pricing options for its Cloud VPN offering on AWS Marketplace. These options offer Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers a chance to buy Cloud VPN capacity upfront at guaranteed rates, as well as benefit from volume discounts.
The CipherGraph Cloud VPN adds an encryption layer to AWS’ secure system, allowing end-users to connect securely to regular or hybrid cloud deployments and access applications running on the backend.
CipherGraph is working to help businesses ranging from SMBs to enterprises to migrate their intranet deployment to the flexible, scalable, pay-as-you-go AWS Cloud, quickly and while reducing security and compliance concerns. CipherGraph Cloud VPN accomplishes this by providing intranet-style secure access to the cloud.
The Cloud VPN is available as a Virtual Machine that comes with value-added features including Role-Based Access Control, 2-Factor Authentication, Audit support, and Active Directory/LDAP integration.
“We are privileged to be able to offer a solution for compliance and secure end-user access to AWS customers globally. Our discounted annual subscriptions give them the power to purchase capacity for the long-term at lower rates”, said John Cabri, COO, CipherGraph Networks.
We are proud to announce the immediate availability of our new product version: CipherGraph Cloud VPN 3.0.0 on AWS Marketplace.
This release contains several updates and all new support for creating site-to-site VPN tunnels with a single step. Now it is simple to connect your AWS VPCs together or even connect your AWS to your datacenter or hybrid cloud setup. Forget setting up complex IPSec configurations and bringing them to sync, you can now create a mesh of connections across all your cloud zones and datacenters within minutes, no networking expertise required.

Startups! Startups! Startups!
There is no other segment that embraces the most cutting edge modern technology and comes up with truly domain altering ideas. Startups are often born in the cloud and need to run lean (Eric Ries!), and they need to remain incredibly efficient. AWS Activate allows them to run even leaner and we want to do the same.
One Year free usage of our award winning platform CipherGraph Cloud Access Gateway
CipherGraph is pleased to announce immediate availability of the CipherGraph Cloud Access Gateway for startups. Under this, each startup that is accepted into the AWS Activate program is offered an year’s worth of usage free ($10,000 value) and consultation on achieving a streamlined security for their AWS deployment.
Our CEO, Jitender Sharan said, “We are very committed to ensure that our technology is able to help startups concentrate on their core business and not worry about IT details, this is our way of giving back to the community which had been very helpful to us during our early years. We welcome and applaud Amazon for this effort.”
CipherGraph has been on the AWS Marketplace since June and has quickly seen adoption by companies who are on AWS completely or have a hybrid setup. Our support for unifying access to multiple AWS zones/geographies in a singular setup is a key benefit in addition to achieving PCI-DSS compliance on the cloud by many of our customers on AWS who deal with regulated data (customer data, finance, medical records etc.).
