Masergy Introduces Secure, Network-Embedded Remote Access

Masergy, a global service provider specialising in simplifying business networks for enterprises, has introduced its Managed Remote Access in the Cloud service for enterprise customers to experience the benefits of SSL VPN (Secure Socket Layer Virtual Private Network) Remote Access without considerable capital and operating expense and without reconfiguration of the corporate network and applications.

Masergy’s Remote Access in the Cloud solution simplifies remote access for customers, telecommuters and partners by offering access to corporate files, applications and resources through an easy–to–use portal from a standard Web browser. Masergy’s offer enables enterprises to reap the benefits of SSL VPN without the headache of owning, maintaining and monitoring the typical hardware, software and licenses.

“Masergy is committed to offering advanced network-embedded solutions. To supplement our successful Service Control Center and Network Analyst products, we now offer this customisable Remote Access solution to enterprises requiring secure, mobile access to the network,” said Scott Brothers, director of product management at Masergy. “With the Managed Remote Access in the Cloud service, enterprise employees working remotely are also protected by the security and reliable performance of the MASERGY network.”

Benefits for enterprises implementing Masergy’s Managed Remote Access service include:
Protection of corporate network from security risks, advanced security with end-to-end encryption and data integrity, increased productivity with network access through a standard Web browser and rapid implementation and infinite scalability.

Since the Remote Access solution is embedded in the Masergy MPLS network, the connection is 100-percent secure and offers remote users a virtual office from any location. Users can make VoIP phone calls and participate in video conferences; and company intranet, extranets and network file folders are as accessible as if the user was sitting at his desk.
