iSimplyConnect Shows Early Promise With Over 2500 Enterprise Sign Ups in Four Weeks Since LaunchNetwork Managers Embrace iSimplyConnect's Cloud Based VPN iPad Solution Over Costly Hardware Like Cisco and Juniper for Fully Secure, Direct Network Access (June 07, 2012)
ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/07/12 -- iSimplyConnect, an Asavie Technologies Software-as-a-Service remote access Virtual Private Network (VPN) for iOS devices, today announced the company has signed up more than 2,500 businesses since the application's debut last month. Such rapid adoption underscores the mandate network administrators and IT managers have to grant workers secure remote corporate network access via their iPads and other iOS devices. As more software is successfully rolled out as a service -- like Adobe's Creative Suite -- IT managers are finding cloud based pay-as-you go options to be cost effective and more flexible than traditional, high priced VPN hardware.
iSimplyConnect's fast growing popularity comes with no regard to variables such as location and industry. The service has proved extremely popular in the United States, Europe and South Africa. Most notably, its adoption across diverse verticals like IT, law, advertising, engineering, medical and compliancy demonstrates iSimplyConnect's broad appeal for cost-conscious organizations. iSimplyConnect provides the ability to manage all activated employee devices from one central location.
"iPads are changing the way our organization works, communicates and exchanges information, making the decision to empower those wanting access to the corporate network, easier," said Tony McGovern, Partner, corporate and commercial law at Eversheds, an international law firm located in 30 countries. "This just makes sense, and to know it does the same or a better job at keeping our network secure while people access it from outside our firewalls takes a tremendous burden off our shoulders, especially when it comes to how much iSimplyConnect saves us in having to buy and manage expensive VPN equipment."
According to a recent Cisco and BT survey, 95% of IT managers polled support employees bringing and using personal devices in the workplace; and 80 percent of IT managers believe BYOD implementation holds a competitive advantage. IT managers using iSimplyConnect's service like its simple subscription with no commitments, unlimited access, no-usage restrictions and enterprise class TLS/SSL and IPSec security.
"The quick adoption of the iSimplyConnect service comes at an exciting time in the IT industry. IT managers now have options for secure, remote access to corporate networks: they can continue to purchase expensive and difficult to integrate solutions from the big name hardware vendors, or simply download an app to iPads for the same level of iron-clad remote access security," said Ralph Shaw, CEO of Asavie Technologies. "iSimplyConnect was built to easily launch, manage and connect every employee's iOS device around the world to a company network without breaking IT budgets or compromising security."
As more employees work from the road and home than ever before, and with the implementation of the iPad and iPhone into daily work routines, employees expect a simple BYOD implementation from employers. An on-demand service that provides users with a simple enterprise level security virtual private network (VPN) solution, iSimplyConnect brings instant, direct access to iPad users' office networks from anywhere in the world for pennies on the dollar with no long term commitments. Priced at $15/month for up to three users, $40/month for up to 10 users, $95/month for 11 to 25 users and $180/month for 26 to 50 users, iSimplyConnect is unlike 'screen scrapers' like LogMeIn as the service provides a secure full network connection behind your company's firewall. Employees also do not need a work computer to be turned on for the service to connect.
