New York, New York (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Today marks a milestone 14 months in the making for BetterCloud, a provider of cloud management and security software for Google Apps. The company’s flagship product, FlashPanel, which in its short history has been installed by over 20,000 domains with more than 14 million end users, graduates from beta today.
According to BetterCloud’s Founder and CEO, David Politis, “Keeping FlashPanel in beta for over a year allowed us to gather feedback from our customers, make product roadmap decisions in an open format and add features more quickly - in just 14 months, we’ve built over 100 new features into FlashPanel.”
As part of removing the application’s beta tag, BetterCloud is also introducing FlashPanel Enterprise, the company’s paid product offering.
While all users have the ability to upgrade to FlashPanel Enterprise today, BetterCloud is also giving each and every customer an extended 30-day trial of FlashPanel Enterprise to facilitate a smooth transition to the paid version. The company is offering three pricing levels to suit the needs of its diverse customer base as well as FlashPanel Basic, a completely free product. FlashPanel Enterprise for Google Apps for Business, Nonprofit and Education cost $10 per user per year, $5 per user per year and $2 per user per year, respectively.
“FlashPanel has evolved from a simple directory management tool to a powerful management and security application for the entire Google Apps suite,” added Politis. “FlashPanel is at a point where we can truly defend its value and we’re certain that the application is saving tens of thousands of IT administrators countless hours of work every week, protecting their domains from potential exposures and giving them in depth visibility into domain activity.”
This past June, FlashPanel became EU Safe Harbor and TRUSTe certified and successfully completed SOC 1 SSAE 16 examination, further proving the product’s enterprise readiness.
“Taking off the beta tag today doesn’t mean FlashPanel will stop evolving,” noted Politis. “It means BetterCloud is more committed than ever to our customers and partners. We plan to continue to engage with our users to deliver more product functionality in the future - it’s really just the beginning.”
