Get anytime, anywhere access to the programs and files
you need every day - whether you're in the office or on the go.
Does the above slogan seem like something you would be interested in? LogMeIn has announced a solution to help Windows and Mac users make this happen with their new Ignition remote desktop solution.
Announced this morning at WES 2009, LogMeIn has introduced Ignition for the BlackBerry Storm. Currently in Alpha stages at this point with a release to beta expected soon, Ignition looks to be well underway and even in its Alpha form I can see me replacing at least 2-3 applications with this all-in-one solution. Read on for the full press release.
WOBURN, Mass. May 5, 2009, Wireless Enterprise Symposium 2009 – The ability to access and control a computer from a BlackBerry Storm smartphone is coming soon from LogMeIn. LogMeIn Ignition for the BlackBerry Storm smartphone will allow users to access their Internet-connected Windows- and Mac-based computers from virtually anywhere and work as if they were sitting in front of them.
LogMeIn will demonstrate an alpha version of Ignition for the BlackBerry Storm smartphone during WES 2009 at booth #503, May 5-7 in Orlando, Fla.
“BlackBerry smartphone users are accustomed to being productive while on-the-go; LogMeIn extends users’ mobility by making their office and home computers fully accessible from their smartphone,” said Kevin Farrell, vice president and general manager, Digital Living at LogMeIn. “Ignition will be optimized for use with the BlackBerry Storm and make it easy for anyone to carry the power of their computer with them virtually anywhere—without the weight.”
Key features planned for LogMeIn Ignition include:
BlackBerry Storm smartphone users can access files and programs on any remote Internet-connected computer as if they were sitting in front of it. LogMeIn Ignition is compatible with Windows PCs running LogMeIn Pro, LogMeIn IT Reach or LogMeIn Free, and Mac OS X computers running LogMeIn Free.
With LogMeIn Ignition's secure password storage, remote computers are only one click away. Eliminate the hassle and headaches associated with trying to remember multiple passwords or access codes without compromising security.
