Netreo Launches IT Management Platform NetreoCloud
NetreoCloud's network management technology provides a simple, secure connection between the device and the cloud, bringing Netreo's alerts to the user's phone.Information technology management specialist Netreo announced the launch of NetreoCloud, designed for customers who use the company's OmniCenter, platform, which allows them to monitor and manage their entire IT ecosystem through OmniCenter Mobile, a secure app on their Android or iOS device. The technology allows Netreo to securely integrate the data from the customer's on-premises OmniCenter with the cloud through brokered trust, and provide that data safely to any employees using the OmniCenter Mobile app. NetreoCloud's technology eliminates most hurdles by providing a simple and secure connection between the device and the cloud, bringing Netreo's alerts to the user's phone, according to the company. "Not many IT management vendors have a story or game plan here yet because it's been a challenge to allow access to devices outside an organization's firewall," Kevin Kinsey, CEO of Netreo, told eWEEK. "Some vendors have an app, but they generally require VPNs to attach to internal NMS systems. Additionally, they require that a landing point be installed, configured and maintained alongside the NMS system, which is quite cumbersome. As such, this represents a significant differentiation opportunity for us."
To get started with NetreoCloud, users download the OmniCenter Mobile app from the App Store or Google Play, have the OmniCenter appliance generate a unique QR code, and then use the app to scan that code to instantly authenticate and connect the mobile device.
