EarthLink Launches VPN Service

EarthLink launches a virtual private network service that targets small and midsize businesses looking for secure network access for traveling workers and employees working from home or remote offices.

EarthLink Inc. on Monday launched a virtual private network service that targets small and midsize businesses looking for secure network access for traveling workers and employees working from home or remote offices.

The Atlanta-based Internet service provider is offering both client-based and web-based VPN products, which are powered by Positive Networks, a provider of managed remote access services.

The EarthLink VPNLink client provides network access to remote computers. The VPN WebLink product provides access through any computer with a web browser.

The service, which is offered on a subscription basis starting at $100 a month, provides access to corporate-network resources, such as file sharing, applications, e-mail and a company's intranet.

Positive Networks, based in Overland Park, Kan., provides technology that lets information-technology managers centrally manage all policies relating to security, resource controls and end-user experience. The company also provides tools for monitoring PCs and laptops accessing the corporate network, as well as anti-virus, anti-spyware and other security services.
