GoRemote Launches Comprehensive Enterprise Application Deployment and Patch Management Solution

GoRemote Express Accelerates Deployment Time Frame From Months to Weeks With One-Click Installation Process

MILPITAS, Calif., March 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GoRemote Internet Communications, Inc. , a leading provider of managed secure remote access solutions, today introduced GoRemote Express(TM), a comprehensive, non-intrusive solution for managing enterprise applications and patch deployment. Through a one-click, end-user installation process, enterprises can enforce security policies for updating security software, operating system patches, anti-virus definition files, and other software updates required for continuous security compliance and accelerate the deployment time frame from months to weeks.

By simplifying the deployment process through a reduced number download and installation steps, GoRemote Express can help companies more rapidly realize the value of GoRemote Mobile Office(TM), GoRemote Teleworker(TM), and GoRemote Total Security Protection(TM). GoRemote Express enables companies to manage and have complete visibility to the entire deployment process from a single Web portal, eliminating the need to send out large file attachments or CDs to thousands of users. GoRemote Express deployments can centrally be managed and configured by the IT department, eliminating the need for end-users to self-manage complex download and installation procedures. Additionally, for large application deployments, GoRemote Express completely manages the download process and will resume download and installation if the connection is interrupted due to various causes, including poor network connectivity or lack of time.

"GoRemote Express enabled Sun Healthcare to successfully deploy pre-configured mobility software to nearly 1,000 people in 3 weeks, which would have been impossible with our previous system or with traditional deployment methods," said Zachary Grant, senior network engineer, overseeing the Network Operations for Sun Healthcare Group. "GoRemote Express has given us significant cost savings and provides the most effective approach to manage our deployment process, enabling Sun Healthcare to focus on our ability to deliver quality healthcare products and services to thousands of people on a daily basis."

"Deploying and upgrading internal applications, especially those pertaining to security policies, has always presented many challenges to IT managers, and those challenges become magnified with remote access solutions," said Tom Thimot, President and CEO of GoRemote. "GoRemote Express addresses these 'pain points,' and enables organizations to re-focus IT resources on mission-critical issues instead of managing and troubleshooting deployment problems. Already recognizing the benefits of the GoRemote Branch Office solution, Sun Healthcare was able to replace their existing mobility system and to begin experiencing the value of GoRemote Mobile Office in a matter of weeks by using GoRemote Express."

Simplified Software Download and Installation

Whether using PCs or laptops, end-users typically go through multiple steps to complete the download and installation of new software. This time-consuming process carries a high potential for errors that can trigger multiple calls to already overburdened IT help desks. With GoRemote Express, the end-user receives a URL and registers to download a small file. Once the download is complete, the user can initiate and complete the installation in one click by launching the downloaded file. For patch deployment, the process is further simplified and requires minimal user intervention.

Improved End Point Security with Patch Management

Deploying new patches is a critical step in assuring that all end points maintain the necessary security software to minimize vulnerability. The GoRemote Express patch management module provides customers with a Web portal where the administrator can post patches to be deployed and view, in real time, the list of users that have installed the new patch. End point reports permit the administrator to have visibility to all the applications that are currently running on each laptop or desktop. Auditing this list allows customers to set targeted updates and facilitate end-user support.

GoRemote Express features include: -- Application Auto-launch via a Split File Process -- With only 140KB published to the desktop, the end-user experience is simplified and reduces IT support time while accelerating deployment time. -- Installation Sequencing -- The process is simple: uninstall legacy software, install the new program or install multiple programs, and reboot the system. For organizations, this dramatically accelerates the deployment process for a fast return on investment. -- Patch Management -- IT and network managers can enforce security compliance by easily posting, deploying, and viewing installation progress report for patches. -- Detailed End Point Reporting -- IT and network managers can remotely receive an inventory of software and hardware of the organization's computer pool. This simplifies end-user support and provides important data for system upgrade planning. -- Real-time Reporting -- Through the GoRemote Universal Remote Control(TM) Web portal, IT and network managers have real-time access to the status of downloads throughout the enterprise providing for efficient enterprise application deployment. Real-time reports include the user name, date, name of downloaded file, time of download, and method of connection. -- Hosted Service -- An option for storing large applications, this service frees the enterprise from the cost and time of self-hosting. -- Support of Large Deployments and Bandwidth Management -- Several thousand users can be deployed within a few weeks, and the download agent will resume an interrupted download from point of interruption. -- Microsoft Windows Support -- With support for Windows 98, 2000, XP, and Windows Server 2003, GoRemote Express easily integrates with Windows to facilitate quick and easy installation.

"As the only single-source provider of comprehensive solutions for mobile workers, teleworkers and branch offices, GoRemote continues to expand our proven track record of providing rapid return on investment with GoRemote Express," continued Thimot.

Let's do a visualization exercise. Imagine it's December 31, 2018, and you're ringing in the New Year with your friends and family. You think back on everything that you accomplished in the last year: your company's revenue is through the roof thanks to the success of your product, and you were promoted to Lead Developer. 2019 is poised to be an even bigger year for your company because you have the tools and insight to scale as quickly as demand requires. You're a happy human, and it's not just...
"Opsani helps the enterprise adopt containers, help them move their infrastructure into this modern world of DevOps, accelerate the delivery of new features into production, and really get them going on the container path," explained Ross Schibler, CEO of Opsani, and Peter Nickolov, CTO of Opsani, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Cavirin Systems has just announced C2, a SaaS offering designed to bring continuous security assessment and remediation to hybrid environments, containers, and data centers. Cavirin C2 is deployed within Amazon Web Services (AWS) and features a flexible licensing model for easy scalability and clear pay-as-you-go pricing.

The nature of test environments is inherently temporary—you set up an environment, run through an automated test suite, and then tear down the environment. If you can reduce the cycle time for this process down to hours or minutes, then you may be able to cut your test environment budgets considerably. The impact of cloud adoption on test environments is a valuable advancement in both cost savings and agility. The on-demand model takes advantage of public cloud APIs requiring only payment for t...
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
identify the sources of event storms and performance anomalies will require automated, real-time root-cause analysis. I think Enterprise Management Associates said it well: “The data and metrics collected at instrumentation points across the application ecosystem are essential to performance monitoring and root cause analysis. However, analytics capable of transforming data and metrics into an application-focused report or dashboards are what separates actual application monitoring from relat...
The benefits of automation are well documented; it increases productivity, cuts cost and minimizes errors. It eliminates repetitive manual tasks, freeing us up to be more innovative. By that logic, surely, we should automate everything possible, right? So, is attempting to automate everything a sensible - even feasible - goal? In a word: no. Consider this your short guide as to what to automate and what not to automate.
We just came off of a review of a product that handles both containers and virtual machines in the same interface. Under the covers, implementation of containers defaults to LXC, though recently Docker support was added. When reading online, or searching for information, increasingly we see “Container Management” products listed as competitors to Docker, when in reality things like Rocket, LXC/LXD, and Virtualization are Dockers competitors. After doing some looking around, we have decided tha...
It’s “time to move on from DevOps and continuous delivery.” This was the provocative title of a recent article in ZDNet, in which Kelsey Hightower, staff developer advocate at Google Cloud Platform, suggested that “software shops should have put these concepts into action years ago.” Reading articles like this or listening to talks at most DevOps conferences might make you think that we’re entering a post-DevOps world. But vast numbers of organizations still struggle to start and drive transfo...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
Many enterprise and government IT organizations are realizing the benefits of cloud computing by extending IT delivery and management processes across private and public cloud services. But they are often challenged with balancing the need for centralized cloud governance without stifling user-driven innovation. This strategy requires an approach that fundamentally reshapes how IT is delivered today, shifting the focus from infrastructure to services aggregation, and mixing and matching the bes...
"Codigm is based on the cloud and we are here to explore marketing opportunities in America. Our mission is to make an ecosystem of the SW environment that anyone can understand, learn, teach, and develop the SW on the cloud," explained Sung Tae Ryu, CEO of Codigm, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Lucas, Senior Staff Engineer at Optimizely, discussed how by using ne...
"CA has been doing a lot of things in the area of DevOps. Now we have a complete set of tool sets in order to enable customers to go all the way from planning to development to testing down to release into the operations," explained Aruna Ravichandran, Vice President of Global Marketing and Strategy at CA Technologies, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
DevOps teams have more on their plate than ever. As infrastructure needs grow, so does the time required to ensure that everything's running smoothly. This makes automation crucial - especially in the server and network monitoring world. Server monitoring tools can save teams time by automating server management and providing real-time performance updates. As budgets reset for the New Year, there is no better time to implement a new server monitoring tool (or re-evaluate your current solution)....
While we understand Agile as a means to accelerate innovation, manage uncertainty and cope with ambiguity, many are inclined to think that it conflicts with the objectives of traditional engineering projects, such as building a highway, skyscraper or power plant. These are plan-driven and predictive projects that seek to avoid any uncertainty. This type of thinking, however, is short-sighted. Agile approaches are valuable in controlling uncertainty because they constrain the complexity that ste...
"This all sounds great. But it's just not realistic." This is what a group of five senior IT executives told me during a workshop I held not long ago. We were working through an exercise on the organizational characteristics necessary to successfully execute a digital transformation, and the group was doing their ‘readout.' The executives loved everything we discussed and agreed that if such an environment existed, it would make transformation much easier. They just didn't believe it was reali...
"We're developing a software that is based on the cloud environment and we are providing those services to corporations and the general public," explained Seungmin Kim, CEO/CTO of SM Systems Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud revolution in enterprises has very clearly crossed the phase of proof-of-concepts into a truly mainstream adoption. One of most popular enterprise-wide initiatives currently going on are “cloud migration” programs of some kind or another. Finding business value for these programs is not hard to fathom – they include hyperelasticity in infrastructure consumption, subscription based models, and agility derived from rapid speed of deployment of applications. These factors will continue to...
