Share Article

MegaPath Inc., the leading provider of managed IP data, voice and security services in North America, today announced at the Gartner Enterprise Networking Summit the availability of MegaPath Business Continuity SSL service, which provides workers with secure remote access to the enterprise network and information systems in the event of a business disruption, such as a power outage, natural disaster or other unforeseen incident. MegaPath's Business Continuity SSL delivers enough capacity to handle instantaneous peak usage, so that employees and other network users can gain access to business-critical applications from any Internet connected device, anywhere in the world.

To remain competitive in today's 24x7 business environment, companies need to ensure that their employees are productive at all times, and as the leading provider of managed IP solutions, MegaPath is dedicated to providing them with the latest technologies and services to do so

    Unlike most business continuity plans that require investments in additional equipment, MegaPath's Business Continuity SSL service instantaneously scales to meet a customer's business continuity demands without any capital investment. MegaPath proactively monitors the service 24x7x365 to ensure that it is always ready and available, so there's never any delay or interruption in access when an event occurs. It's just one less thing to worry about in a time of crisis.

According to Gartner Vice President and Distinguished Analyst, John Girard, "If your disaster recovery (DR) plans do not include remote-access coordination steps, no amount of cool technology will save your operations. Even if the DR plan accounts for people getting connected immediately after the disaster, delays in establishing access rights can damage the business recovery process. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPNs can be particularly helpful because end users can be enrolled quickly, and browser-based security tools can protect the company, even if the user is working from an unmanaged PC."

MegaPath's Business Continuity SSL service delivers anytime, anywhere connectivity with unmatched reliability and performance. Leveraging the latest Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology, the service combines clientless access, dynamic policy management and 3DES encryption to deliver secure and easy-to-use remote access, allowing customers to retrieve critical information and utilize business applications without having to install any client software or undergo any special training ahead of time. Employees simply go to a web site and enter the same username and password that they use to log-on to their PC every day in the office, and they instantly have access to all of their network files and applications - just like at work. So, they can continue to do their job from their home, a friend or relative's house, a hotel or anywhere there is an Internet connected computer.

"To remain competitive in today's 24x7 business environment, companies need to ensure that their employees are productive at all times, and as the leading provider of managed IP solutions, MegaPath is dedicated to providing them with the latest technologies and services to do so," said Jim Cragg, President and Chief Operating Officer at MegaPath. "MegaPath's Business Continuity Service provides the continuous network connectivity today's leading companies require, so that they can continue to operate effectively, even under the most challenging circumstances."

As a leading provider of managed IP services, MegaPath combines best-in-class VPN and security technologies with unmatched design, deployment, monitoring, management, reporting, support and global remote access capabilities. All of this helps businesses to effectively achieve their objectives -- even when their employees are working remotely anywhere in the world.
