Users of the world’s premier open-source kernel can now enjoy powerful and convenient network security with the release of the NordLayer Linux app.
While manual configuration remains a key feature in our Control Panel, our Linux app expands our VPN offerings to the millions of businesses running devices on Linux-based operating systems.
With a full suite of VPN features, our cloud-based solution allows users to conveniently access secure gateways around the world, including private gateways through dedicated servers available in dozens of locations around the world.
Just like all our applications, our Linux offering can be set up and deployed hardware-free in just minutes, giving your teams secure remote access and powerful data traffic encryption.
Similar to the the robust feature set offered across our applications, NordLayer for Linux features:
Powerful command line interface
Full IKEv2 integration (OpenVPN coming soon)
Auto-connect on app startup
Auto-connect on untrusted networks
Secure private gateways
SSO integration with GSuite, Okta, and Azure AD
One of the biggest benefits of our Linux app is its ease of installation and customization. Set up secure remote access and network security with no hardware and 24/7 expert support. Here’s how you can get Linux workstations set up today:
