EINSTEIN by Polkast - New, High-Security Private Cloud for Business - Available Today for Public Preview!

Connects mobile devices directly to Windows Servers, Saving Big Money on Cloud Storage Fees

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Polkast announced today that Einstein, the first major B2B release of the private cloud company, is available as a free trial on the Polkast website (polkast.com).

Polkast has ended months of anticipation for Einstein, the high-security private cloud that connects Windows Servers directly to mobile devices. With more than 50 targeted business features, Polkast Einstein enables content and mobile device management for an affordable price. Key features include remote file access, permissioned sharing, on-premise file storage, remote wipe capabilities, centralized IT control, and a live-feed of file usage. Polkast Einstein is offered as a 30-Day Free Trial, with a one-time purchase price starting at only $499 after the trial. Server download is available on the Polkast website (polkast.com) and mobile download is available via Apple, Google Play, and Amazon (pending) App Stores.

Einstein is a welcome addition to the IT ecosystem. It's easy-share technology removes the pain of Sharepoint, while eliminating the security risk of public clouds like Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive.

And Einstein's introductory offer is only one-tenth (1/10th) the cost of Box!

"Don't change what you're doingthat's the best part about Polkast. You still have all your stuff, you still own it, and then Polkast comes in and extends the reach of your content so you have more options. It gives you the freedom to store, access, and share everything, without disrupting current operations or messing with your security framework. The convenient manner in which you can enable your users while maintaining the integrity of your architecture is very appealing!" – Timothy Joyce, CTO, iNETWORKS Group

Security. Businesses use Einstein as an answer to NSA PRISM. It allows them to gain control and regulate policy over confidential data. Unlike public clouds like Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive, files remain on-premises and approved devices and applications, never on the internet.

Simplicity. Einstein takes two minutes to setup on the server, and users can be fully functional with the click of a button. No syncing devices. No uploading files. And it's much easier to use than Sharepoint.

Savings. There are two big opportunities for savings. Einstein allows companies to take advantage of existing hardware by turning Windows legacy systems into a robust private cloud. Businesses can also reduce reliance on public cloud solutions like Box and Dropbox, resulting in significant savings.

Total Product Cost over Four Years (40 employees, 1 server)
This little genius could save you over $25,000, in the next four years!

"We had a few companies preview Einstein over the holidays, and they were impressed! Some of these guys are so looking forward to Einstein, they have already downgraded their Box accounts by a hundred GBs or so, in anticipation of the Einstein release. It's really going to save people a TON of money!"  Hong Bui, CEO and Founder, Polkast

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.
