SMBS REPLACING CLOUD SERVICES WITH SELF-HOSTED PROXY PRO FOR SECURE REMOTE SUPPORT
December 16, 2015
Boston, MA – December 16, 2015 – Proxy Networks, a leading provider of secure, self-hosted remote support and remote access solutions, today announced that Smith Brothers, a furniture manufacturer in Berne, Indiana for over 80 years, has selected PROXY Pro for its remote support needs. After evaluating numerous options, Smith Brothers decided to replace its Logmein annual subscription with PROXY Pro, which is available on a perpetual license model.
“We have been searching for a prospective replacement to Logmein for a few months. The replacement had to meet a few criteria, including comparable price and no loss of features. We finally found a suitable winner: PROXY Pro from Proxy Networks,” said Derek Augsburger, Director of IT for Smith Brothers.
In addition, the move from a public cloud service to a self-hosted, internal solution allows Smith Brothers to regain control over data and security for their remote support sessions. “PROXY Pro gives us fast remote control inside our network, and its secure web gateway gives us secure, reliable remote control outside of the network too. With PROXY Pro we only rely on our networks, and will no longer be tied to any outside servers that are not under our control,” he said.
“We are seeing more businesses switch from public cloud services like Logmein and Teamviewer to self-hosted options like PROXY Pro for remote support every day,” said David Franklin, Technical Support Manager at Proxy Networks. “Because PROXY Pro is hosted in-house, customers get better performance for remote access to machines inside their firewall, without sacrificing the security and reliability they need for remote access to machines outside their firewall,” he said.
PROXY Pro, which can be self-hosted on-premise or in the cloud, allows organizations to enjoy the best of both worlds: Fast, reliable remote support with the ease-of-use of a cloud service but the fine-grained control and security of an in-house deployed solution. In addition, PROXY Pro is available through a perpetual license model, which translates into lower costs and higher return on investment over time versus recurring fee models of cloud services. PROXY Pro is an ideal choice for SMBs and enterprises looking to lower costs, keep access rights, screen data and file transfers in-house, and streamline the delivery of remote support services.
