New Edge Networks has introduced a remote-access platform that enables workers to get fast and secure global access to their private corporate networks.
Called ReadyOffice, the platform eliminates the up-front capital outlay for a hardware appliance as well as the additional strain on IT support for initial setup and ongoing management. Businesses simply download the network connector software, define internal access policies and provide the service to their employees in as little as 36-to-48 hours.
ReadyOffice completes the full network picture, enabling businesses to get a full suite of easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy, and secure network connection solutions from a single provider, said Greg Griffiths, vice president of marketing for New Edge Networks. With ReadyOffice, we can now take care of the smallest customer with the most basic remote access needs, or the largest, national customer requiring a fully meshed data network for VoIP, and a traveling sales force of thousands.
ReadyOffice enables Web-based provisioning and installation with a choice of access types such as client, SSL browser or remote desktop. With a login name and password, for example, traveling employees could access their corporate files, e-mail, and other business applications inside the firewall from any Internet-connected PC.
The platform also features centralized, browser-based, real-time policy management and control, eliminating the need for IT staff design and management. The solution is scalable to permit any number of authorized users. Workers have round-the-clock access to tech support and help desk through a toll-free number.
Overland Park, Kan.-based Positive Networks Inc. powers the ReadyOffice engine for New Edge Networks.
