PHILADELPHIA -- WorldExtend, the remote access and network security specialist, today announced that it has increased its customer base to over 500 users since the launch of its software-based SecureIDA free managed VPN and remote access service on April 10, 2007. In response to such rapid growth, WorldExtend has appointed Barry Porozni as Chief Operating Officer. Porozni will oversee WorldExtend's continued growth strategy. The arrival of Porozni, who has vast security, mobility, operations, and application development experience, underscores WorldExtend's commitment to its rapidly-expanding client community.
"While most organizations recognize the productivity benefits associated with simple and secure remote access, WorldExtend understood that many lack the technical expertise, infrastructure, or budget to implement such a solution," said Terry Bienstock, CEO, WorldExtend, LLC. "As the rapid increase in SecureIDA sales since its launch a month ago underscores, the response from organizations has been extremely positive across all industries," Bienstock continued. "Appointing a dynamic IT professional like Barry Porozni as Chief Operating Officer underlines WorldExtend's commitment to continue to provide its burgeoning client community with the very best in products and support."
SecureIDA's simple and cost-effective secure remote access has been warmly welcomed by such diverse sectors as healthcare, telecommunications, retail, business services, and manufacturing.
"We were looking for a managed remote access solution that would make it simple and cost effective for staff to centrally manage appointment scheduling and all applications," said Alvin Felman, President & CEO of USPT's affiliate, Hamilton Physical Therapy. "As a healthcare practitioner it was critical to meet the strictest security standards to ensure the safety of all patient records and full HIPAA compliance," Felman continued. "WorldExtend's excellent support staff made it simple to meet all our criteria with SecureIDA."
