Iomega has launched its OfficeScreen managed security service products for small and medium-sized enterprises in Europe.

Iomega has launched its OfficeScreen managed security service products for small and medium-sized enterprises in Europe.

The products are already available in the US and will be available in the UK and beyond through Iomega’s channel partners, including telecom providers.

Officescreen is designed to provide enterprise-quality perimeter security and secure remote access for SME enterprise networks, helping to protect small businesses from data theft and liability.

SMEs use Officescreen as a secure, outsourced network security and VPN service. Such a system is less expensive as it doesn’t require upfront hardware expenses, dedicated IT resources or large IT budgets.

OfficeScreen’s firewall/VPN, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and IPSec (IP security) bundles help create secure wide area networks that connect remote offices and workers to applications and data at a company’s headquarters, while keeping out hackers.

The market Iomega is entering is now becoming crowded, with the likes of BT already offering such services to SMEs.
