WorldExtend Adds VPN Diagnostic Tool

WorldExtend's new SecureIDA free managed VPN and secure remote access service includes self-diagnosing installation tool

PHILADELPHIA -- WorldExtendR, the remote access and network security specialist, today announced that its SecureIDAT free managed VPN and secure remote access service has introduced a new installation process that automatically diagnoses the environment where new software will be installed to ideally position the platform for further market-disrupting feature enhancements and also enabling the platform to be available for distribution on alternate sites - SecureIDA will be available for download on C/Net Networks starting July 1, 2007.

"The SecureIDA platform enables our fast-growing user community to deliver productivity-enhancing remote computing access to employees or business partners with an ease of use and administration, level of security and functionality, and price point that is unmatched in the market," said Bruce LeBuhn, Director, Marketing & Sales, WorldExtend, LLC. "Our goal is to consistently roll-out high-value, low-cost security and access features on top of a free, feature-rich, and disruptive remote access platform - basically in the same fashion that Skype did to Internet Telephony," LeBuhn continued. "What's really exciting about adding our new self-diagnosing environmental tool into our software is that we're one step closer to rolling-out additional value-add services, have made it simpler to access new distribution channels, and are better positioned to enable service provider partners to 'white label' our platform."

Downloadable in minutes from www.SecureIDA.com/pr9, and configured via an extremely-simple and intuitive wizard-driven process, SecureIDA enables any organization to set up secure access to data and applications from any location within minutes - providing the same business agility and related productivity gains previously available only to large enterprises. SecureIDA is the only service that includes free VPN and free remote desktop access as part of a complete end-to-end remote access solution.

SecureIDA's intuitive software-based platform makes it simple for an organization's employees, branch offices, suppliers, or even customers to gain simple, secure, and unlimited free remote access to shared data, such as network file folders or client server applications. Offering far greater functionality and security than other remote access services, such as GoToMyPC, SecureIDA provides free secure access to one Microsoft Windows XP Pro or Linux desktop computer for an unlimited time. The free service can also be utilized to securely share files among peers, partners or suppliers, enhance the security of client/server applications, such as e-mail or billing, while the fee-based SecureIDA Application Portal provides a far-less-costly alternative to Citrix Systems' application publishing solution (making this productive functionality available to any-sized company).

WorldExtend's vision for SecureIDA includes making it simple for customers to add additional fee-based, value-added services and enhancements that are customized to their business needs. WorldExtend's initial fee-based services include full maintenance and technical support (including a number of advanced features and functionality and access to an additional 25 PCs) and application publishing through their Application Portal, and on-net Zero-Port technology that provides enhanced security and ease of use.
