ANXeBusiness Urges Companies to Prepare for Surge in Remote Access Requests as Workers Stay Home to Avoid Swine Flu.

Health Crisis, Terrorism, Severe Weather Require Comprehensive Business Continuity Solution for Secure Remote Access to Business-Critical Data and Applications

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (May 1, 2009) - ANXeBusiness Corp., a leading provider of networking and security managed services, today warned corporate IT departments to prepare for a dramatic increase in remote access requests as employees opt to work from home during the Swine Flu outbreak. The company offers its PositivePRO hosted managed service for secure remote access as a fast and easy way for IT departments to deploy a highly scalable SSL VPN solution without buying, installing and configuring an appliance.

PositivePRO is one of several high-demand Managed Network Service, Transaction Delivery Service, and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) products ANXeBusiness provides for customers in a variety of vertical markets. As one of Michigan''s leading technology companies, ANX works with companies in the automotive original equipment and aftermarket industries, healthcare, ducation, government, financial and aerospace industries as well as other manufacturing sectors.

“With the publicity surrounding new confirmed cases of swine flu, we're helping our customers in corporate IT departments prepare for secure remote access to business-critical resources in the wake of this health crisis or in the event of a natural or man-made disaster,” said Jim Michels, vice president of marketing, ANXeBusiness. “We can help our clients provide secure access to their networks for remote and mobile employees who require network data and applications.”

According to Michels, many organizations are simply not ready for the influx of employees seeking remote access to business-critical data and applications. A dramatic increase in remote access requests can cause a huge network bottleneck and slow productivity down to a crawl. PositivePRO helps IT organizations pre-determine their secure remote access requirements to optimize network performance even with a high number of users and significant bandwidth usage.

“We're working with a number of customers now to run through any situation that can cause a spike in remote access usage to help them scale up their remote access as quickly as they need to,” said Michels. “Most corporate executives and IT managers are worried about the impact of the Swine Flu with employees working from home. ANXeBusiness is well suited to help IT departments work through this issue and other matters that impact their business continuity plans.”

PositivePRO is a fully managed service for secure remote access for remote and mobile employees. Authorized end-users can securely connect to the company network and Intranet from anywhere outside of a company’s four walls, and functions as an extension to services provided by corporate IT managers and CIOs. Because PositivePRO adheres to corporate security policies for compliance and auditing compared with consumer remote access technologies often installed without IT permission or support, corporate IT and security personnel have confidence in the product along with its ease of use and flexible policy capabilities. PositivePRO can be used with company-owned laptops, home PCs, and other remote devices that use multiple remote access methods such as client-based access, Web-based access, and/or remote desktop control.
