TMCNet:  Vir2us Launches Automation Technology to Empower Firms Adopting

Vir2us Launches Automation Technology to Empower Firms Adopting "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) Strategies to Realize Dramatic Cost Reductions

San Francisco, California, Aug 28, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Over 60% of companies have implemented or are planning some implementation of BYOD. The reasons for this trend are improved mobility, communication and creativity and innovation, according to CIO Magazine(1Aug2013) which recently published the results of a survey of over 500 companies about their BYOD plans and experience. California based Vir2us is realizing success with IT service providers and companies that are looking to BYOD strategies and outsourcing to solve the rising cost and complexities of IT. The company's Genesis product line automates IT services for virtually all brands and models of computers and can even allow corporate users to self-service their computers. Vir2us boasts reductions of up to 70% in IT service costs, and a more than 10X improvement in service delivery times. "Genesis was designed to meet the needs of corporate computer users. Customers have been delighted with the speed, efficiency and comprehensiveness of the services," said Anthony More, Vir2us Chief Technology Officer. "User satisfaction with corporate IT services has been elusive in many firms. BYOD is bringing this issue into sharp focus." Not surprisingly, the CIO Magazine survey highlights some significant challenges BYOD is creating for IT managers whose corporate culture has often favored tight controls over user flexibility. Making the transition from a few models of computer systems to perhaps hundreds of different devices is causing many internal IT departments to become overwhelmed and seemingly unresponsive to demands of the business. This comes at a time when failing cyber security strategies are only exacerbated by the introduction of a seemingly unlimited set of variables.

"BYOD has also exposed internal IT processes that are largely manual and people dependent, which begs for the level of automation and self-service that Vir2us is able to provide," said More. "Customers who have implemented Vir2us automation services are telling us that they can't imagine how they ever delivered computer services without us." About Vir2us: Spawned in Silicon Valley in 2001, Vir2us is a privately held company that provides outsourced expert management and protection of global digital assets, and critical infrastructure systems for financial services, energy markets and telecommunications worldwide. The company delivers patented and proprietary technology solutions based on next-generation cyber security designed by the firm's research and development division. Vir2us' patented technology specifications have been cited by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in recommendations for securing the nations power grid infrastructure as part of the Government's Smart Grid initiative (July 2010). Vir2us technology has been dubbed "game-changing" by government cyber security insiders including NSA and White House cyber security experts.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
