CAMPBELL, Calif., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- hopTo Inc. (OTC-QB:HPTO), developer of the most comprehensive mobile productivity workspace, is announcing hopTo Work, a secure mobile productivity platform for small and medium sized businesses (SMB) and enterprise level companies.
With the mobile workforce estimated to top 1.3 billion in 2015 and tablet sales set to surpass PC sales by 2015 (according to IDC), mobile workers are looking to leave their PCs behind and "travel light," using smartphones and tablets as their primary productivity devices while on the road. For businesses, this creates substantial security and workflow challenges.
With hopTo Work, SMBs and Enterprises that have been struggling with the integration of mobile devices into the daily workflow will be able to offer their mobile employees a secure, capable, and flexible solution for securely accessing corporate email, the corporate storage network, editing documents, and much more.
hopTo Work is a platform that will address the mobile access challenges that modern businesses face in the post-PC era: A secure, device agnostic (supporting iOS and Android running on both tablets and smartphones), bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution that provides secure and flexible file access, multi-tasking, secure email, and more. The hopTo platform can be customized to meet the application and content access needs of individual users without risking data security and integrity. It will also allow the organization a fine degree of control over individual users having access to specific applications and content. Most importantly, with hopTo Work, the organization will have full control over the flow of content, so documents are never at risk from "leaking" outside of the organization.
"SMBs and enterprises have been struggling with how to create workflows and manage the security challenges that come with mobile devices that have either been purchased by the company or BYODs that belong to employees," said Eldad Eilam, President and CEO of hopTo. "We designed the hopTo Work platform for one purpose: To allow mobile business users to seamlessly make the transition from PCs to mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones."
hopTo Work was developed to be backend neutral and will function over different desktop virtualization infrastructures, such as Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, or other virtualization technologies, such as VMware. The platform was designed with the enterprise in mind by focusing on these key requirements: security, multitasking, compatibility, document management, and flexible storage capabilities.
Understanding that security is paramount, applications and content will only be accessible in a personal virtual cloud that users can access via any provisioned device. The hopTo platform can be customized to meet the application and content access needs of the user without risking data security. It will also make it easier for organizations to control application and content access from devices in real-time, without having to worry about users downloading proprietary information to their device.
"hopTo Work will support every feature required for the basic business workflow, without relying on any external device services. This guarantees not only an incredible user experience, but also enhanced security and a greater degree of control while maintaining a very low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) for IT departments managing mobile devices," continued Mr. Eilam.
hopTo Work will be released later this year, with pricing to be announced closer to the release date.
