Vordel Partners with Microsoft SharePoint Specialist, Syrinx to Improve Access to SharePoint based portals across distributed environments

Vordel, a provider of Application Gateways for Cloud and SOA Computing, today announced a partnership with Syrinx Consulting Corporation, a process-driven IT consulting and software development firm. The deal follows Vordel’s recent launch of the Vordel SharePoint Gateway solution to help enterprises make their Microsoft (MSFT) SharePoint deployments more secure, more accessible, and deliver an all-around improved user experience through increased performance. Vordel’s partnership with Microsoft SharePoint Specialist, Syrinx offers users the benefit of secure, compliant, and fast access to SharePoint based portals across distributed environments. Vordel and Syrinx will co-present on accessing SharePoint based portals across distributed environments at SharePoint Saturday in Boston on April 28, 2012.

Enterprises benefit from using the Vordel SharePoint Gateway's security integration to seamlessly share data between non-Microsoft applications, mobile workforces and the SharePoint collaborative environment. Additionally, the gateway is proven to improve Microsoft SharePoint performance by a factor of at least two times, out-of-the-box. The power of the Vordel SharePoint Gateway combined with the expertise of the Microsoft Gold certified consultants in Syrinx’s SharePoint Practice fully utilizes the platform’s potential. Additionally, due to Microsoft SharePoint's reliance on Windows and ActiveDirectory security infrastructure, enterprises often need to customize costly point solutions for mobile and remote access to Microsoft SharePoint. Vordel SharePoint Gateway helps IT integrate SharePoint into enterprise-wide mobile and remote access technologies.

“The combination of expertise offered by Vordel and Syrinx makes integrating and accessing data securely across Microsoft SharePoint and non-SharePoint environments a seamless process so users can collaborate, make decisions and close business faster,” said Ed Jackowiak, VP Sales North America for Vordel. “Because Vordel SharePoint Gateway provides out-of-the-box, agent-less Microsoft SharePoint single sign-on (SSO) integration with all the leading access management products, IT can maximize the return on existing investments and business users can continue to work in their established workflows without impacting productivity.”

“It’s clear that SharePoint offers many benefits, however many organizations still lack the awareness and skillsets to maximize its potential," said Luke Howarth, Director of Business Development, Syrinx "Vordel and Syrinx have a long history of innovation and as a result of our alliance together we can provide SharePoint solutions that can resolve the key concerns of our clients."

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
