Remote.it, the softBank-funded private network provider is launching a new way to create completely private network overlays, enabling secure connectivity for routers, connected devices, as well as cloud, container, web and edge applications and devices. Since it is a software-only solution, it can be rapidly deployed to manage existing as well as new assets.
SoftBank Corp is reselling remote.it and soon expects to resell into other geographies. It was also the lead investor of remote.it’s $9M Series A round. Remote.it VPI eliminates the threat of hackers exploiting global IP addresses and open communication port. The VPI provides globally manageable private network solution that works over mobile networks, making them impervious to global IP-based attacks
Hosted network provider remote.it announced the global commercial availability of its enterprise Virtual Private Internet (VPI) solution. VPI is a new way to create completely private network overlays, enabling secure connectivity for routers, connected devices, as well as cloud, container, web and edge applications and devices.
Remote.it, Inc. is a secure connectivity software company based in Palo Alto, California, which has developed a new model for secure, private connectivity for devices, open ports, cloud services and websites. Pronounced ‘remote it’—the 3 in the name signifies that its technical solution operated at layer 3 of the OSI networking model. For companies seeking to securely connect computers and edge devices or protect access to websites and web and cloud services, remote.it provides a Virtual Private Internet solution that is built in the OSI network layer.
“Thanks to the Internet, the world is now always connected. But, unlike the public Internet, enterprises need a globally accessible network that is fundamentally private, while simultaneously being easily deployable and accessible from anywhere,” shared Ryo Koyama, co-founder and CEO of remote.it. “remote.it’s Virtual Private Internet solution does exactly that, and since it is a software-only solution, it can be rapidly deployed to manage existing as well as new assets.”
SoftBank Corp is reselling remote.it VPI in Japan and in Germany, and soon expects to resell into other geographies. SoftBank Corp was also the lead investor of remote.it’s Series A round.
“As enterprises begin to move networking to the cloud or the connected edge, they require the solutions be fundamentally private, with the ability to be easily deployable across existing devices in the field” said Sadahiro Sato, Senior Vice President and Deputy Head of the Enterprise Business Unit for SoftBank Corp. “remote.it’s VPI solution is the exact solution that our enterprise customers are looking for, and since it can be deployed through software only, our customers can bring the power of modern cloud connectivity and security very rapidly to all of their existing devices in the field.”
The remote.it VPI has the following enterprise capabilities:
Unencumbered connectivity for edge, IoT, Raspberry Pi or M2m devices
Open port threat elimination
Open port and connected device management: empowering the secure and remote deployment of networked devices for field or internal use, while maintaining full control of permissions, access and manageability
Secure communication without the need to modify existing applications.
