Vancouver, Washington – (The Hosting News) – October 16, 2007 – Wholly owned subsidiary of EarthLink Inc., New Edge Networks, has been placed on the Gartner Analyst Firm’s ”Magic Quadrant” for its remote access and mobility services.
New Edge Networks was listed among 10 communications providers, by the Gartner Inc. global information technology and advisory company based in Stamford, Conn. The category assessed solutions providers based on ability to execute and completeness of vision. Gartner’s Magic Quadrants are visual snapshots of market direction, maturity and participants.
Gartner’s ”Magic Quadrant for U.S. Managed Remote Access and Mobility Services, 2007” was authored by Eric Paulak, its managing Vice President of network services and infrastructure.
Greg Griffiths, Vice President of marketing for New Edge Networks remarked, ”Inclusion in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant I think underscores the recognized value of our ReadyOffice solution for businesses with distributed workforces that need easy and secure access to corporate information systems.”
In response to customer interest, New Edge Networks introduced ReadyOffice in October 2006 to complement its suite of wide area network services. ReadyOffice offers an easy-to-implement ”software as a service” solution with no upfront capital investment.
