EarthLink addresses business cloud security with new workspace service suite

EarthLink (Nasdaq: ELNK) is giving its business customers another option to secure their internal applications in the cloud with the launch of its Cloud Workspace service, the company announced today.

Building on its recently debuted EarthLink IT services package, Cloud Workspace is a hosted desktop service that the company says enables customers to control business applications and data with secure access for their employees over any device and via any Internet or private MPLS connection.

Functioning as a virtual office from any location, it currently supports 250 traditional administrative office applications such as files and e-mail. As a customizable solution, it also allows customers to add their own applications that relate to the needs of their specific business needs.

EarthLink said the service is ideal for businesses that range from 50-600 employees that lack a large IT staff or the capital to invest in managing on-site servers and storage. Along with enabling cost savings, the new product ensures security of critical applications by disabling them on an employee's device that may have left a company, for example.

Users can also access EarthLink's IT Services product suite via the myLink customer portal using a centralized IT Services Center dashboard.
