NetConnect facilitates end-to-end mobility deployments with full mouse functionality on iOS devices
Laptop-like experience now available on iPad and iPhone with full mouse functionality within NetConnect on iOS
Sydney, Australia – 17 May 2018. Northbridge Secure systems and Swiftpoint Limited announce that their partnership has realised full support of the Swiftpoint GT mouse on Northbridge Secure’s secure remote access software – NetConnect – on the iOS platform. Users of NetConnect on iPad and iPhone devices can now achieve higher levels of productivity with full mouse functionality. This innovation is paving the way for end-to-end mobility deployments with consistent user experience across all popular platforms.
Michael Harte, Chief Executive Office, Northbridge Secure Systems, says, “Our partnership with Swiftpoint Limited and the joint development efforts in the integration of the Swiftpoint GT mouse with NetConnect mean that our solution can now be used to usher in a truly complete mobility deployment. iPad and iPhone users are no longer limited by the touch-only ecosystem of their devices. Full laptop-like mouse integration is extremely important when it comes to securely accessing and using desktop environments within an iOS device via NetConnect.”
Harte goes on to say that NetConnect not only supports bring your own device (BYOD), remote working, mobile office, and deskless office solutions but much more. With data security at the core of its design, NetConnect provides persistent and dependable secure remote access to corporate resources across a range of platforms, always with user experience at the forefront. The addition of full Swiftpoint GT mouse support enhances the solution by further expanding the range of devices that provide a consistent NetConnect experience to the users.
Mike Chisholm, CEO of Swiftpoint says, “We’re delighted with the partnership established with Northbridge Secure to promote the Swiftpoint GT’s functionality on iOS. Northbridge Secure’s NetConnect secure remote access solution makes working away from the office easy. While the iPad continues to be one of the world’s favourite devices, the reality is that touch is simply not as efficient as a mouse when working on Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents – and now, with the GT and NetConnect software, iPad users have the perfect solution. NetConnect allows iPad users to easily access their entire office environment while working remotely and, with the GT and a keyboard, to essentially replicate a Windows laptop or desktop experience.”
The award winning Swiftpoint GT is designed in New Zealand and engineered from the ground up for mobile workers. The pocket-sized mouse is supported on Mac, Windows, Android and iOS and has both Bluetooth 4 and USB dongle connectivity. Boasting an ergonomic design, it’s also conducive to extended periods of computer use. With its patented GesturePoint™ technology, the mouse can perform touch gestures without the user touching the screen. And with its patented RapidCharge™ technology the mouse only takes 30 seconds to store enough power to provide an hour of computer use, or 2-4 weeks of use after a full 2-hour charge.
NetConnect and Swiftpoint GT mouse can now be jointly procured via NetConnect reseller partners.
