Nivio All-in-One Business Platform Revolutionizes IT for SMBs
PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Nivio, a cloud computing company providing IT solutions to small and
medium businesses, announced the release of its new comprehensive IT
offering, Nivio for business. The integrated platform combines Windows
desktops, networked storage, easy user management, and an app store that
enables instant provisioning of essential business applications such as
Microsoft (News - Alert) Office.
Nivio for business addresses a prominent issue for all organizations:
mobile access. With analysts projecting tablet sales in excess of 1.2
billion in 2013, all SMBs are trying cope with providing a consistent
BYOD strategy without threatening security or adding complexity. Nivio
users can quickly and easily access their cloud-based Windows desktop,
plus all their files and software, on nearly any device; from iOS and
Android (News - Alert) tablets and smartphones to Chromebooks, Kindle Fires, and even
public or shared computers.
Nivio provides maintenance, security, licensing, and upgrades. All
business IT needs are covered end-to-end with minimal setup or
management. "SMBs are faced with technology problems that are
increasingly complex and costly to manage - everything from BYOD and
mobile access, to dealing with security threats and different versions
of different software," said Frank Houghton, CEO of Nivio. "Solving
these challenges is nearly impossible without a dedicated IT department,
and few SMBs have that luxury. Using Nivio, businesses can concentrate
on what they do well and leave the rest to us."
From an IT standpoint, setting up an office could easily take days, but
with Nivio, businesses can get set up in minutes without any hadware or
infrastructure. Administrators can use the control panel interface to
add users, set storage permissions, and instantly give staff access to
more than 40 software applications and suites like Microsoft Office. The
end user just logs in to Nivio to access their Windows computing
experience on the device of their choosing.
Mobile and remote access is also a seamless experience. Users simply
download a small app to their device or log in to their Nivio account
through the HTML 5 web interface to access their fully-functional
Windows desktop, files, and full versions of all their software.
In the face of a rapidly changing technology environment, SMBs need
reliable systems at a fixed cost. "With Google (News - Alert) charging for Google Apps,
it only underscores the importance of what SMBs have known all along:
that having a premium and reliable service available when you need it is
worth paying for. The SMB is an important market sector for technology
as they tend to be more nimble and take savvy approaches to solving
every day business problems," said Houghton. "Online productivity
applications have their place, but typically offer a compromised
experience. Users need a seamless experience where they can easily
interact with other applications; a Windows-based hosted desktop with
integrated shared storage and mobile device support. Nivio does just
