GFI Software’s new cloud delivery platform makes it easy for small and medium-sized businesses to adopt critical IT services
GFI Software today announced the availability of GFI Cloud, a ground-breaking platform for the delivery of cloud services via a Web-based user interface, accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection, at any time. GFI Cloud permits IT administrators within small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to manage their IT systems more easily and efficiently, freeing up time and resources so they can focus on higher value and more critical tasks.
Initially, GFI Cloud will include GFI VIPRE Business Online, for delivery of advanced antivirus and anti-malware protection, and GFI Network Server Monitor Online, giving administrators the ability to monitor the health of their networks and optimise server and workstation configurations to improve performance. In the coming months, GFI LanGuard technology will be added to the roster of services, helping IT security staff to automate software patching and vulnerability assessment via the same centralised Web portal. Additional services from the GFI Software product portfolio will be added in coming months as the company continues its investment in this revolutionary platform.
GFI Cloud gives SMBs with limited IT resources and budget easy access to GFI’s award-winning solutions via a cloud-based portal that, in 10 minutes or less, lets them start to manage their whole IT network.
“With GFI Cloud we are integrating our on-premise security and infrastructure products in a unified cloud-based platform to enable IT administrators to manage their systems more easily and efficiently,” said Walter Scott, CEO of GFI Software. “Many businesses have been hesitant to migrate core applications to the cloud because they are unsure about moving away from proven solutions on which they have relied to date. The beauty of GFI Cloud is that it is based on GFI’s existing, tested and proven technology so users know they are getting a product in which they can have confidence from day one. GFI Cloud was built with simplicity in mind – these services can be up and running in 10 minutes or less so businesses with limited IT resources can easily and confidently deploy key security, asset tracking and network monitoring solutions in the shortest time possible.”
