PORTLAND, Ore., June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Uplevel Systems has added highly innovative Virtual Private Network (VPN) capabilities to its hybrid managed service platform to help providers differentiate and increase profitability. Ideally suited for the networking needs of smaller companies, Uplevel's VPN capabilities revolutionize the managed service provider (MSP) model with unprecedented affordability and ease of use and configuration.
"Users at smaller companies need secure access to office facilities from home, coffee shops, and other public places every bit as much as employees at large companies, if not more," says Don Monteith, Owner of Compudoc Computer Services in Weatherford, Texas. "These businesses need to keep costs low and security high as they allow mobile workers to print to office printers and access files on the company network. The Uplevel solution equips them to do all this and much more in exchange for a low, risk-free monthly subscription."
Uplevel managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering equips MSPs with a turnkey platform for scaling their business while bringing better business outcomes to customers. Uplevel delivers the core information technology (IT) elements small businesses need most – wired and Wi-Fi networking, storage and backup, and security—through one powerful, simple device installed at the customer site and managed by providers via the cloud.
Secure Remote Access Made Easy
The newly available VPN capabilities enable small business employees to work from anywhere, without compromising security or breaking a sweat. The newly available VPN capabilities enhance resellers' competitive differentiation and profitability by making VPNs:
- Easy to use
- No third-party software to install on user devices Works with native VPN drivers on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS
- Provides secure access to remote desktops, storage, printers, servers, and other onsite IT resources
- Easy to sell
- Pure subscription with no upfront purchase, or hidden maintenance or support fees, and no "per user" fees
- Sold on a per-site vs. per-user basis
- No need to pay ISP for static IP addresses – makes service essentially "free" to providers
- Easy to support
- Provision in 1 minute
- Fast and easy user training
- Users automatically maintain same level of security remotely as they do onsite
"Where setting up a customer VPN has traditionally been roughly a ten-step process, Uplevel offers a quick two-step configuration," says Glenn Chagnot, Vice President of Marketing, at Uplevel. "Our unique architecture makes our VPN solution radically simpler than alternatives and allows partners to offer SMBs more for less while expanding their own profitability and value proposition. The new VPN capabilities introduce significant breakthroughs that exponentially improve upon the traditional MSP offering."
