The iPad continues to be the leading tablet for consumers and businesses. And for business professionals who want to use their iPads and still access their corporate networks securely, LogMeIn, GoToMyPC and similar solutions all help you access your computer from a remote connection.
A new technology, from iSimplyConnect, says it’s an better solution – instead of a “screen scrape”, iSimplyConnect is a virtual private network (VPN) solution that gives you direct access to the files on your corporate network. It’s $15 a month and might make IT managers heroes to their colleagues.
“We recognized the iOS tablet as a real game-changer for today’s employee. Why should the remote worker carry a heavy laptop everywhere when their own iPad has, with a little help – the potential to provide access to all the same information?” said Ralph Shaw, CEO of Asavie Technologies. “Today, employees aren’t asking, they’re demanding full access to their applications, intranet and the ability to work from thousands of miles away. Today’s companies need an easily adaptable, secure, cost effective way to meet those demands – and that, my friends, is where iSimplyConnect comes in.”
