Cortado Sets User Experience Standard for Cloud Desktop Services with Cloud Partnership Program
Cortado, the leading provider of cloud desktop services, today at VMworld announced a new Cloud Partnership Program to improve business users’ cloud desktop services experience and productivity while maintaining security needs required by IT departments.
“Existing solutions for consumerization of IT are limiting and don’t always address the needs for the current market,” said Henning Volkmer, president and CEO of Cortado, Inc. “Through the Cloud Partnership Program, service providers and VARs can compete with unmanaged, self-provisioned cloud services by providing a comprehensive solution that enables secure access and storage while maintaining an easy user experience.”
Cortado’s Cloud Partnership Program features its free cloud desktop solution, Cortado Workplace, and its enterprise cloud desktop solution, Cortado Corporate Server. Cortado has revamped its cloud service provider offerings for Cortado Corporate Server, offering cloud desktop services outside of the traditional virtual desktop at a monthly cost of $6.50 per user.
With a strong focus on channel-based software sales, Cortado is also inviting new resellers of the Cortado Corporate Server solution to become Cortado partners. Through Cortado’s program, partners gain a comprehensive set of benefits that are extended by a series of online trainings for partners joining before December 31, 2012. Unique to the North America and South America region, any partnership fees can be waived through 2013.
Benefits For Business Users
Cortado is unique in its ability for users to take action on documents, including printing, faxing or emailing documents with one easy click. Users may simply sign up for the Cortado Workplace app at http://workplace.cortado.com and upload their desired document to their own personal cloud desktop. For access on mobile devices, users can then download the Cortado Workplace app from any of the major app stores (iTunes, Android Marketplace or BlackBerry App World). The enterprise users of Cortado Corporate Server in addition enjoy access to corporate IT resources. Cortado securely integrates devices such as iPads into existing corporate IT and provides a full range of traditional desktop functions such as network/file and intranet app access, printing, faxing and more for all mobile platforms, increasing user productivity.
Benefits For IT
For IT administrators, Cortado is making deploying a cloud desktop services solution easier and safer with Cortado Corporate Server. To integrate mobile devices into the enterprise, IT now has an advanced solution that provides advanced mobile device management (MDM) while giving employees secure access to the enterprise resources on any device. Cortado Corporate Server has an open design that focuses on increasing productivity by combining the power of enterprise resources with easy-to-use and readily available resources on the user‘s device. With the end-to-end security approach, Cortado enables local encryption of documents on devices along with deleting of files or partial deleting of company files, in case of an emergency (lost device, etc.).
Cortado Workplace is available as a free app in all major app stores. More information is available at www.cortado.com/workplace. A fully functional demo version of Cortado Corporate Server 6.0, including all features, is available to download for free at www.cortado.com/corporate.
