iWay Africa introduces business server

Leading Internet Service satellite provider on the continent, iWay Africa Nigeria Limited (INL) has introduced the ‘iWay Business Server’ (IBS) into the market.

This, the company said, is a product that will save business customers time and money.

A press statement made available to ITRealms Online from the company quoted the General Manager, iWayAfrica Nigeria Ltd, Mr. John Ugbe, as saying that iWay Business Server is a feature rich software bundle that is a self-contained “network in a box” targeted at the Small, Medium Enterprise (SME) segment.

He also said that the business server incorporates a full set of security services such as anti-spam, virus protection, firewall, intrusion detection and prevention and access control as well as business critical applications including email server, Domain Name System (DNS), web server, file and print services, web proxy, web filtering and Virtual Private Network (VPN) services among others.

As said by him, for a company to assemble the similar functionality critical for running a business, it takes time and could cost a company thousands of dollars to acquire and maintain.

“The iWay Business Server is an ideal complement to our award winning Internet products as iWay focuses on delivering reliable, secure Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services to our customers,” he said.

Additionally, he said, this was another way in which iWay tends to add value to customers’ businesses.

“The Business Server is scalable and can be implemented in very small companies as well as larger companies of up to 100 employees,” he asserted.

He emphasized that iWay understands that different companies have different needs, so, some companies may already have many of the components of the iWay business server whilst others may have none.

“Our approach is to understand the specific ICT needs of our customer before implementing the solution. That way each business server is tailor made for our customers where we can implement the full extent of features available on the Business Server or implement a sub-set as required by our customer,” said Ugbe.

He also noted that the solution is simple to setup and configure with many standard parameter already preconfigured by iWayAfrica.

“There is an extensive self-help library to ensure for quick and easy configuration and trouble shooting. iWayAfrica Nigeria Ltd also offer extensive professional services around the product which includes telephonic support and remote access support,” he said.

Marketing Executive, iWayAfrica Nigeria Ltd, Mrs. Muyiwa Esomojumi, said “Business Server allows our users to manage and control their employees’ bandwidth usage and extract detailed reports on employee internet usage which allows for greater cost control to our clients’ business.”
