Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2011
Cloud networking company, Yoics, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of its second generation portal at yoics.com. Featuring support for native RDP connectivity, computers using the popular Microsoft Remote Desktop software or terminal services, can now be securely connected to from any Java enabled browser. “Everyone and everything is connected to the Internet, but legacy methods for connectivity like port forwarding leave networks vulnerable to malicious port scanning attacks, and VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) are too complex to setup for the mass market,” Said Ryo Koyama, CEO and co-founder of Yoics. “Yoics changes all of that by providing a secure, private way of connectivity that can be setup in minutes.”
Available now as Beta
The Yoics 2.0 portal is available now as Beta, and free users will be able to connect to their desktops remotely for 30 minutes and are able to share it with up to two friends. Yoics Pro subscribers for $24.95/year, will be able to connect for up to two hours and can share with up to ten friends. During the beta period, subscribers to Pro can receive two years for the price of one by entering the coupon code NO.MORTO at checkout.
Setting up Yoics for RDP is easy. Users download the free Yoics Desktop software program, setup a Yoics account, enable RDP on their machine using Windows, then enable RDP in the Yoics desktop, all of which can be typically done in under five minutes. No router configuration or other setup is required. Secure connections are established through the Yoics portal at http://www.yoics.com.
The Yoics desktop can also be used to make files, services, or any LAN resource available securely across the Internet.
Yoics also powers secure cloud networking in a number of stand alone network devices, including Cisco’s Smart Storage Network Area Storage devices, the Mole camera from Astak, various network surveillance products from Lorex Technology Inc., and the iZON remote room monitor from Stem Innovation. Yoics powered products can be found at many mass market retailers, including the Apple Store, Best Buy, Costco, Amazon and Frys.
Yoics exists because network configuration is too hard for the mass market and too prone for mistakes that leave dangerous security vulnerabilities. The Company is a five person angel backed start-up based in Palo Alto, CA, that provides cloud based secure networking services to consumers, device makers and software publishers.
