MegaPath Business Continuity Service Adds Real-time Scalability Option to Support Usage Spikes
New Rapid License Control Service Complements Company's Business Continuity SSL Offering for Improved Scalability During Network Disruptions and Natural Disasters
COSTA MESA, CA, April 27, 2009 – MegaPath Inc., the leading provider of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, today announced its new SSL VPN service – Rapid License Control. As an additional option to the Company’s existing Business Continuity SSL service, and available for Corporate Access SSL customers, Rapid License Control is a scalable, service designed for businesses with disaster recovery or business continuity requirements.
Rapid License Control enables users to add increased user licenses to their VPN and Internet connections in real-time, so that they can easily and seamlessly support increases in usage requirements. This service addresses situations where the primary data center is still operational, but a business requires additional capacity due to a temporary spike in remote users because of natural or weather-related disasters, manmade events or other situations that keep employees offsite.
MegaPath’s fully-managed Business Continuity SSL with Rapid License Control gives businesses the flexibility and portability of the Internet, while at the same time providing a scalable solution to account for a sudden increased demand in network access. Now, employees or business partners can securely access sensitive corporate and customer data that exists on an enterprise network from remote locations.
Features of MegaPath’s Business Continuity SSL Service include:
- Clientless access to network resources via a Web browser
- Scalable infrastructure to handle spikes in traffic
- Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol with 3DES encryption
- Security policy enforcement at the user and application level
- Proactive monitoring, testing and maintenance 24 hours a day, seven days a week
- Automatic failover and load balancing on high availability or enterprise CPE models
- Detailed auditing and compliance regulations reporting
- Instant deployment with no need to pre-install software
“In an emergency, it’s all hands on deck to ensure that the lines of communication between corporate and employees, as well as with customers and suppliers remain operational,” said Beth Tyebjee, SVP of Marketing at MegaPath. “Regardless of the type or size of a business, our new Rapid License Control service is insurance that, regardless of the disruption, employees can work effectively and securely from remote sites to maintain business as usual.”
