Array provides preventative measure to avoid potential revenue loss or drop in productivity
MILPITAS, CA - May 5, 2009 - Array Networks Inc., a global leader in enterprise secure application delivery, today announced a plan to assist customers through the recent public health crisis, by offering its Business Continuity Planning (BCP) solution at no cost for thirty days to any DesktopDirect license owners. Concerns related to emergencies such as the recent flu outbreak could result in the majority of a company’s workforce suddenly working remotely. The combination of DesktopDirect’s Enterprise Remote Desktop Control (ERDC) capabilities and BCP Plan, allows all company employees to work remotely with the same desktop experience that they have at the office.
Array DesktopDirect coupled with Array’s BCP solution is deployable within 24 hours for immediate prevention of business disruption and revenue loss resulting from employee absence. Licensed customers immediately gain up to the maximum capacity of their hardware for 30 days, to easily handle unanticipated bursts in remote users, thereby eliminating the need to outlay high capital expenditures or commit to a service contract.
“Many of our customers face the challenge of responding appropriately to the flu emergency,” said Michael Zhao, Chief Executive Officer at Array Networks. “They need their remote access infrastructure to support the entire company, but they may not have the resources or near-term budget to get provisioned in time. As a responsible corporate citizen, Array’s goal during this public health emergency is to help customers through the current crisis, by quickly provisioning them to maintain company-wide business continuity, at no risk to themselves in terms of cost or long-term commitment.”
Array DesktopDirect is a unique capability of the SPX Series Universal Access Controller (UAC) that enables instant productivity for employees by allowing seamless remote control of office desktops. Users browse to a URL, enter single sign-on login credentials, click a desktop icon, and they are working within the familiar environment of their office desktop. The simplicity of this solution enables untrained users to be instantly productive with minimal support overhead. By only transmitting keyboard, video and mouse movements across the network, DesktopDirect minimizes data leakage, latency, training needs, and helpdesk calls.
Array’s BCP solution enables businesses to rapidly increase the number of remote access users without any actions required by IT during an emergency. For example, an SPX5000 or SPX6800 can burst up to 64,000 concurrent users without any IT intervention. This ensures that business continuity does not hinge on any one person or process in the face of unpredictable circumstances. It also enables a greater number of users to temporarily access applications, servers, file shares, office desktop PCs, and other corporate IT resources, based on demand.
