ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dispersive Technologies today introduced Dispersive™ Connect, a software-only solution designed to replace legacy VPNs for mobile applications. Dispersive™ Connect delivers an unprecedented level of speed, security and reliability to mobile users connecting over the internet by leveraging a Dispersive™ Virtualized Network platform and extending its capabilities to the mobile edge.
The announcement was made at the October 2016 Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando, Florida.
Dispersive™ Connect is the industry's first edge-to-edge platform, enabling out-of-office users to easily and effectively communicate with each other and with their company offices over the internet – while providing protection against cybersecurity threats. Users can now securely access all of their enterprise network services, including cloud applications, via their laptops, tablets and mobile phones, without degradation in application performance.
According to Robert W. Twitchell, Jr., president and CEO of Dispersive Technologies, Dispersive™ Connect will displace VPN, a troublesome and outdated security technique.
"VPNs have become an attack surface of choice for hackers," said Twitchell. "Many enterprises use VPNs to conduct business, connect users and give third-party entities access to their networks and services. Unfortunately, VPNs are now exposing their employees, customers and partners to emerging cyber threats, in addition to the reliability and poor performance issues that are well understood and documented."
Dispersive™ Connect employs the latest encryption standards, multipath, split-traffic networking techniques and software-defined perimeters to thwart the threats of DoS/DDoS, unauthorized access, and man-in-the-middle attacks.
In addition to superior security, Dispersive™ Connect also provides faster throughput with customers reporting up to 10 times faster data delivery relative to their legacy VPNs, including delay sensitive, real time applications such video conferencing.
"For the first time, mobile and remote workers can connect to enterprise resources without losing productivity," said Douglas Dimola, Dispersive senior product manager. "This allows employees to spend less time connecting and more time connected. With Dispersive™ Connect, enterprises can finally deliver in-office performance to out-of-office performers."
The company will demonstrate Dispersive™ Connect at Booth #237, which is located in the Atlantic Hall of the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel.
