SAN JOSE, Calf.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing, today launched
Splashtop for Business – a secure, high-performance solution for
organizations to provide and manage remote access for their mobile
workforce. Employees on the go can now remotely access office
productivity applications and data from their mobile devices as if they
were in front of their computers.
“As the consumerization of IT takes hold, technical innovation is
shifting from the data center to the employee,” said Simon Bramfitt,
founder and principal analyst with Entelechy Associates. “Individual
employees are taking advantage of BYOD programs to extend work from the
desktop to the coffee shop and to their homes. Splashtop for Business
offers businesses of all sizes a way to support the growing use of
mobile devices both in the workplace and in remote places, providing the
ease-of-use employees have come to expect, and the security controls
that a business demands.”
Splashtop for Business provides IT departments with an easy-to-deploy
on-premise solution to address the growing use of mobile devices in the
work place by combining industry leading high performance and an
intuitive user interface with a management console. As the only solution
in the marketplace with broad platform support including iOS, Android,
and Windows 8, Splashtop for Business is the perfect bridge for users to
access their data and programs while ensuring interoperability.
“Given the sensitivity of our data it was essential we find a remote
desktop solution that allowed secure access to our system both in the
field and in the courtroom,” said Velta Moisio, Information Technology
Director for the Lake County Juvenile Court in Painesville, Ohio.
“Splashtop for Business not only provides our employees with the
flexibility to safely access their computers but it also allows us to
stay within our budget by eliminating the need for additional server
resources or licensing expenses. By improving our efficiency and
reducing our operating costs, we are able to more effectively put
taxpayer dollars to use in our community. ”

version of Splashtop for Business through its Early Access Program. In
just a few months, an astounding 10,000 businesses joined the program.

With its broad device support, Splashtop for Business also allows IT
