An integrated network management service has arrived on Australian shores for SMEs.NetComm Limited, a leading provider of data communication products and solutions, has unveiled a network management service, designed to meet the specific needs of small and medium sized businesses. NetComms NetAssure is a remotely managed network service that provides businesses the security and control needed in todays business environment, to increase productivity and save money by reducing the unnecessary workload of in-house IT resources.

The NetAssure service allows businesses to link multiple sites through a secure high speed pipe between domestic and international offices.NetAssure is certainly well suited to small and medium businesses that need secure networks between multiple offices, but also has application for those with single offices and for larger Enterprises, said Danny Morrison, General Manager of NetComm.Network deployment in a typical organisation comprises a number of different hardware and software components that require IT professionals to configure to ensure secure connectivity.  NetAssure rolls software and hardware elements into one system that is simple to deploy and manage.  Real time reports can easily be obtained by non-IT staff and automated, so they are generated periodically and emailed to the appropriate staff, said Morrison.  Organisations are growing more and more vulnerable with the increased usage of electronic communication, said David Stewart, Managing Director of NetComm.The NetAssure service is a field proven solution that has been successfully deployed overseas. NetAssures primary central management servers are hosted in a secure data centre in the Sydney CBD, with secondary servers in different locations for backup. With Enterprise level security and certification by ICSA labs, NetComms NetAssure service will reform business networking throughout Australia, said Stewart.NetAssure operates in conjunction with any broadband technology and ISP, meaning organisations are not required to make huge changes to its existing Internet services. Customers can select the length of their commitment based on their own preference with 12, 24 and 36 month terms available. Importantly, there is no upfront investment required with the service. NetAssure partners with preferred System Integrators to deploy the equipment required to enable the service, and the customer simply pays a fixed service charge each month for the length of the agreement.NetComms NetAssure service will officially launch on May 20, 2008 and will be exhibited at Cebit 2008.
