IDrive ASP Web Enables QuickBooks, Access, Act! and Other Multi-user Applications

IBackup(http://www.ibackup.com), the leading Online Storage service provider for consumers and small businesses has unveiled an ASP offering called IDrive ASP that web enables popular office applications including QuickBooks, Act!, Access and many others.

(PRWEB) May 18, 2005 -- "Standard Microsoft Office applications such as Microsoft Access, Excel (with Microsoft Access backend), Act! From Best Software, QuickBooks from Intuit and many other office applications provide multi-user access to the source data on a LAN. We simply web-enable these applications using IDrive ASP technology. So instead of being available on your Local Area Network, you can access the source data from anywhere, as long as you have the necessary Application available on your machine, and have a good Internet Connectivity, preferably, a DSL or Cable connection." says Shyam Appali, COO of Pro Softnet Corp.

"IDrive ASP is the latest offering in the Online Storage field by IBackup. Extending IDrive to support office applications as an ASP was a major challenge. These applications require locking mechanisms to work properly, and we were able to achieve that by extending the LAN functionalities to the web. We once again showed that we have the cutting edge technology in Network Drive field." said Raghu Kulkarni, President and CEO of Pro Softnet.

ASP solutions for office applications have a subscription price point that are much higher than IBackup subscriptions. Also, ASP solutions are still evolving, but LAN based office applications are mature, market-hardened products that are ready to use, have been around for years. IBackup does not make or offer Office Applications, IDrive ASP simply web enables users existing office applications.

Data access using IDrive ASP is encrypted during transit with 128-bit SSL encryption, so users need not worry about security of data while it is being transmitted over Internet.

Once users install and run the IDrive ASP application that creates a mapped network drive, they will just need to move their application data to the drive, and point their application to use this data.
