IceWEB Inks New IceBOX Cloud Customer
Feb 11, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
IceWEB, Inc., a provider of Unified Data, announced that it has signed another large IceBOX Private Cloud customer, a faith-based non-profit.
Initially, a 500 user license BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) rollout, the new implementation includes IceWEB Unified Storage Appliances as well and has the expectation for a far greater number of users as the systems come on line.
"We have definitely found a market sweet spot with our IceBOX Private Cloud product, serving companies that need to deploy BYOD solutions for their employees and constituents. This is the critical business pivot I have been leading the company through to add the all-important recurring revenue to our business model while also continuing to grow our hardware revenue. IceBOX is the vehicle through which that is happening, and it is happening fast. This latest IceBOX customer was especially concerned about security and our ability to rapidly deploy a turnkey system for them to operate from their own Data Center. They had a major problem with security leakage using the public cloud scenario, and they wanted to be able to control their data assets while giving their users the kind of functionality they were accustomed to having," said Rob Howe, IceWEB CEO.
"The ability for their users to access their secure IceBOX from anywhere and on any mobile device--smartphone, tablet, notebook--and any Operating System (iOS, Android, Blackberry, Apple OS, Windows or Windows Mobile) was a critical success factor for us. We are daily demonstrating that our IceWEB unified storage appliances coupled with our cloud-based ecosystem of services is a winning solution. We will be making more significant announcements about our success with IceBOX very soon--this segment is on fire." Howe concluded.
According to a release, IceBOX features very high security level availability such as forced passcode, erase data options and 256bit Encryption. IceBOX integrates with LDAP or Active Directory authentication, utilizes encryption and the broadest range of device support available (iPhone, iPad, Android Phone and Tablet, Blackberry, Windows, Windows Mobile and Kindle).
