VXL is helping organizations shift rapidly to homeworking, by offering a low-cost, 6-month license for software which easily converts current desktops and laptops – including home PCs – into secure corporate endpoints.
The rapid and unexpected shift to homeworking has been a challenge for many organizations. Although employees can work from home, often it’s by using unmanaged home computers – creating all kinds of security issues.
VXL Software has announced that it can help organizations, via a new 6-month license which enables organizations to adapt rapidly, helping them to get through this unprecedented upheaval.
Using one of VXL Software’s two homeworking solutions – one for virtualized Windows environments and one for virtualized Linux environments – organizations can instantly convert a home PC into a totally secure corporate endpoint. The user can access corporate data and applications, but that access is securely ringfenced.
Frank Noon, VP Worldwide Sales at VXL Software, says that “Simplicity is key. Our Fusion SecureDesktop Windows solution runs as an application, while our CloudDesktop On the Go Linux solution boots from a USB drive. In either case, the host device is totally untouched – and for the duration of the session, people work as they would normally via a secure, managed connection. When they quit, they are returned to their home PC. There’s no data crossover.”
Recognizing the need for organizations to adopt what may be a temporary change, VXL Software has created a special 6-month license for just $15 USD per device. “It’s the full product,” says Noon, “and includes support. It’s designed to last for the duration of the lockdown, but it can be upgraded without the price penalty should customers wish.
“It’s not an understatement to say that these are challenging times,” concludes Noon, “but technology does enable many organisations to keep going. Companies such as VXL Software are at the forefront of enabling a shift to a new way of working that, for many, will be the norm for quite a while.”
Like many organisations, VXL Software has shifted to homeworking. “We’re pleased to say that VXL Software is operating almost as normal,” concludes Noon. “We’re helping customers via telephone, video calls and e-mail. Likewise, product support is fully operational.”
