Nortel Contivity IPsec VPN Customers Offered "Safe Haven" by Switching to MegaPath's Managed SSL Service
MegaPath Unveils Comprehensive Migration Program, Including Free Consultation and No Cost 30-Day Migration Period
COSTA MESA, CA, January 20, 2009 – MegaPath Inc., the leading provider of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, today announced that in light of Nortel’s recent financial issues, the company is launching a migration program for Nortel Contivity customers to replace their IPsec VPN remote access solution with MegaPath’s leading Managed SSL VPN services.
MegaPath’s migration plan offers Nortel Contivity customers with a free four-hour consultation (a $500 value) and the first 30 days of service at no cost (certain restrictions apply – call (877) 835-6322 for details. This allows Nortel customers to determine the best approach and to easily move to MegaPath’s SSL VPN service at their own pace, without incurring significant upfront costs.
“If an organization’s investment in the Nortel Contivity solution is nearing end-of -life or if they are having support issues during this challenging time, MegaPath is offering the opportunity to upgrade from an IPsec to an SSL remote access solution without the risk of downtime, delays or technology obsolescence,” said Dan Foster, Senior Vice President of Sales at MegaPath Inc. “With this migration program, Nortel customers will only be billed after the first thirty days, once they are already seeing the value MegaPath delivers.”
Poor product support including dropped sessions, not only increase the number of help desk calls and create a poor user experience but it can also significantly increase management overhead. Leveraging leading technology from Juniper Networks, MegaPath’s Managed SSL VPN services provide the highest levels of performance and reliability. In addition, these MegaPath services deliver secure access to any application, on any network, and from any device, improving productivity and reducing overhead costs.
“Organizations are moving to SSL VPN technology because of the flexibility, security and reliability it offers, and Juniper leads the industry in terms of market share and technical superiority” said Sanjay Beri, vice president of Access Solutions at Juniper Networks. “We are excited that MegaPath has chosen to build its managed services environment using Juniper Networks SSL VPN platforms, the most robust in the industry. MegaPath’s migration plan gives a new group of customers the perfect opportunity to upgrade to this new technology.”
MegaPath’s Managed SSL services include client-based and clientless access with endpoint control security features to support both IT managed and non-managed devices. The latter makes it an ideal solution for Business Continuity, since employees can access enterprise applications from any PC or Mac in the event of an emergency. It also enables businesses to extend access to business partners without having to install software on their PCs.
MegaPath offers three types of Managed SSL VPN services:
- Corporate Access SSL: Allows employees and partners to access corporate applications like email, proposals, pricing, etc., over the public Internet.
- Retail Site SSL: Enables a retail owner or franchisee to access specific stores and their systems, like Point of Sale and inventory control.
- Business Continuity SSL: Enables employees to access enterprise applications remotely in the event of a disaster.
