Symantec Debuts Cloud-Based Online Workspace

Symantec Corp.(SYMC) has announced the availability of the Symantec GoEverywhere beta, a secure online workspace that allows users to access their Web applications anytime, anywhere, using almost any device enabled with a Web browser.

The GoEverywhere beta provides small businesses a secure and scalable computing environment that reduces costs related to hardware, software, storage and IT management, said Symantec. The beta service allows customers to reach their online Web applications from a centralized location and choose from a selection of third-party Web-based applications for word processing, slide making, spreadsheet work and Web-based e-mail. GoEverywhere removes the need to switch between multiple Web sites to access preferred Web-based applications and eases online file management by providing a single aggregated view of multiple third-party online storage accounts.

GoEverywhere is hardware and operating system-independent and uses multilevel password encryption and two-factor authentication.

“As the use of Web-based applications increase, there is a need for our desktop or computing environment to also adjust and become Web-based. We believe this will lead to a paradigm shift in desktop computing,” said Don Kleinschnitz, vice president and general manager, Symantec GoEverywhere. “The GoEverywhere beta is incorporating next-generation cloud computing and Web 2.0 concepts in innovative ways to enhance customers’ choice of how and when they want to access information.”

U.S. users can sign up for a free trial of Symantec GoEverywhere online.
