Connectify Launches Speedify 10 VPN Service That Uses All Your Internet Connections at Once
  • Connectify today announced the launch of Speedify 10, the latest version of its revolutionary VPN service that lets you use all your internet connections at once.

  • Regardless of which network is being utilized at a given moment, Speedify’s industry-leading encryption provides increased security and privacy for all user data flowing through the VPN tunnel.

  • Speed, stability, and security are enhanced as internet users transition between wireless, wired and mobile internet during the pandemic and beyond.


Connectify today announced the launch of Speedify 10, the latest version of its revolutionary VPN service that lets you use all your internet connections at once. With version 10, Speedify has been reimagined to solve the challenges remote workers and other heavy internet users face in the current environment.

Built in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Many Americans are still weeks to months away from returning to the office, and nearly 70 percent of remote workers face connectivity issues when working from home, according to Independence Research. Adding to their internet woes, data from M-Lab revealed that more than three-fourths of U.S. states are experiencing slower internet speeds as the crisis has accelerated.

 

The pandemic has reshaped our expectations for internet access. People are hosting video calls, live streaming, and playing online games like never before to digitally engage with the world. However, despite how essential the internet is to our daily lives, connectivity technologies are failing users in critical moments. Speedify 10 is the remedy, because it lets users bond all of their available connections for increased performance as well as transition seamlessly between them without missing a beat,

Alex Gizis, CEO of Connectify.



Enhanced Features, Better Internet

From home internet to mobile data and public Wi-Fi networks, almost everyone has more than one readily available internet connection that traditional VPNs do not capitalize on.

Speedify 10 removes the friction that prevents internet connections from working together. It empowers a seamless and secure remote work experience, enhances streaming, and adds resiliency for users who cannot afford to be offline.

It stabilizes internet connections by ensuring failover between Wi-Fi and mobile internet without dropping a data stream or disconnecting a user in their networks’ dead zones. Regardless of which network is being utilized at a given moment, Speedify’s industry-leading encryption provides increased security and privacy for all user data flowing through the VPN tunnel.

Speedify 10 improves streaming by automatically detecting and prioritizing real-time streams such as video calls and VoIP, using multiple connections at once to increase reliability or provide an extra boost of speed when necessary.

Key new features of Speedify 10 include:

• Higher quality, more reliable video calls and live streaming – Achieved by bringing multiple connections together to improve performance and speed

• At-a-glance connection statistics – Performance data is front and center, enabling users to understand their connections in new ways

• Reimagined Interface – Users can easily connect, customize, and optimize their remote access experience

• Smoother connections – Support for navigating captive portals and guest Wi-Fi logins without disconnecting

 

When streaming live video or working remotely, technological problems are always looming. Live streaming is all about reaching your audience now, which you can’t do if your internet connection is slow or fails. Speedify provides peace of mind by using all of my available internet connections to keep me connected and streaming wherever I am. Battling internet issues is a thing of the past with Speedify — I can’t recommend it enough,

Chris Carson, owner of SteadiReadi.



Available Now, with a Limited Time Sale

In conjunction with the launch of Speedify 10, Connectify is having a special sale through June 30th on yearly and multi-year subscriptions, where users can experience its latest connectivity solution for an additional 50 percent off of annual and multi-year plans. The app is now available for download on iOS, Android, macOS, Windows and Linux.

Scale Computing Continues to Deliver High-Performing, Scalable Edge Computing and IT Infrastructure to the Government Sector

Scale Computing | September 23, 2021

Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, announced ongoing momentum with customers in the public sector. The company’s HC3 Edge and IT infrastructure solutions continue to enable municipal institutions of all sizes to optimize operations with self-healing, automated infrastructure for all applications while protecting sensitive government data. “In today’s world, IT management is tasked more than ever with simplifying infrastructure and delivering solutions to employees and citizens that mitigate risks in a whole new way. IT departments need to ensure that hardware and software are reliable, remotely accessible, and protected against cyberthreats,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing. “Scale Computing meets the complicated IT infrastructure demands of state and local governments. Our agile, reliable platforms can replace traditional IT infrastructure across any agency, any department, or any system, while driving out the high costs of downtime and system administration.” Scale Computing brings municipal institutions, including governments, government agencies, and other public institutions, into a new era of computing by revamping IT operations with a solution that simplifies management, protects sensitive government data, and helps deliver smart, digital services. Kitselas First Nation is a self-funded and self-governing nation, and one of the 14 Tsimshian tribes in British Columbia. After experiencing a flood, Kitselas First Nation needed new servers and a modern solution for simplicity, scalability, availability and disaster recovery. With only one person on the IT staff, they were also in need of powerful systems capable of running workloads with efficiency and speed, as well as an affordable, easy-to-use solution capable of maximizing uptime. Kitselas First Nation selected Scale Computing’s HC3 platform which provides them with simplified, highly affordable IT infrastructure with improved performance. Since implementation of Scale Computing HC3, Kitselas First Nation saved resources and 15% of time spent managing infrastructure, leading to an increase in time spent working on other projects. Scale Computing’s HC3 solution also provides Kitselas First Nation with disaster recovery and the ability to manage IT infrastructure without the need for local IT staff. Don Agnew, IT support and asset management officer at Kitselas First Nation, says, “We have an on-site backup and a Google Cloud Platform in Quebec. If another disaster strikes, the hardware component fails or the entire HC3 appliance breaks down, we’re covered. The Scale Computing HC3 cluster is highly available and keeps our systems running with no downtime. HC3 won’t let us down.” The Summit County Board of Elections in Ohio is responsible for securely managing the records of 370,000 registered voters and over one million citizen records. As Ohio’s fourth most populous county, the Summit County Board of Elections' entire network infrastructure is managed by a team of just two full-time IT professionals. With an aging server infrastructure and a heavily scrutinized Presidential election fast approaching in 2020, this IT duo needed to modernize their systems, comply with strict new security directives, and do so in an expedited time-frame. After selecting Scale Computing’s HC3 solution, the Summit County Board of Elections was able to consolidate seven servers to a cluster of three HC3 notes in less than seven months, implement automated snapshots of servers that are backed up to a remote cluster providing full system redundancy, simplify management and operations so their two-person IT team could focus on operational priorities, and comply with new state and Federal security directives. As Kevin Moreland, Network & Systems Administrator, Summit County Board of Elections says, “Every decision we make comes down to, ‘can you make it through a Presidential election’? We knew we needed something that was intelligent, scalable, had built-in redundancy, and was cost-effective. Scale has delivered on all of these and more. We went from an environment where we had about seven physical servers to a three node cluster. From that three node cluster, then we can spin up as many virtual servers as warranted by demand – this not only simplified our operational workload but it also dramatically shrunk our eco-footprint.” Chris Iseral, Chief Information Officer of Madison County, Kentucky, was challenged with upgrading old infrastructure in an affordable way. The infrastructure in Madison Country includes 700 users in 26 different facilities across the country, accounting for 23 different departments or agencies. Chris’ challenges included multiple vendors and an expensive, complicated, and aging infrastructure. Madison County, Kentucky partnered with Scale Computing to deliver high quality, responsive, and budget friendly infrastructure that simplifies management, protects sensitive government data, and helps deliver smart, digital services anywhere, anytime. As Chris Iseral says, “We wanted something highly available, redundant, scalable, affordable, and easy-to-use. We’re happier than we’ve ever been. Scale Computing has been an awesome product.” About Scale Computing Scale Computing is a leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions. Scale Computing HC3 software eliminates the need for traditional virtualization software, disaster recovery software, servers, and shared storage, replacing these with a fully integrated, highly available system for running applications. Using patented HyperCore™ technology, the HC3 self-healing platform automatically identifies, mitigates, and corrects infrastructure problems in real-time, enabling applications to achieve maximum uptime. When ease-of-use, high availability, and TCO matter, Scale Computing HC3 is the ideal infrastructure platform
