Critical Links Announces Supplier Partnership with Enflux Technologies

FAIRFIELD, NJ, March 16th, 2010 - Critical Link, a global provider of unified voice, data, security and IT solutions for small and medium businesses (SMBs), today announced a supplier partnership with Enflux Technologies, an SMB-focused, value-added supplier of integrated information and communication technology solutions in Northern Illinois.

Enflux Technologies is the latest addition to Critical Links’ impressive supplier network in the U.S. and especially in the Midwest region. Through this agreement, Enflux Technologies' efforts to bring edgeBOX-based solutions to SMBs in this region will be fully backed by Critical Links, including 24/7 support and various SLAs (service level agreements) customized for specific SMB needs.

The edgeBOX unified communications solution for SMBs includes a full-featured IP telephony system, smoothly integrated with email and web services, network access controls, contact database, calendars, security, router, VPN, file sharing, and more. The voice and data services integration improves employee productivity, simplifies installation, maintenance and upgrades, and dramatically reduces equipment, communications, and maintenance costs for SMBs. It is available on a range of scalable platforms for companies with 10 to 300 users. edgeBOX can be fully managed remotely through a web browser, which makes it especially suited for system integrators that provide managed services to their SMB customers.

"More than ever, businesses are demanding outstanding solutions that trim their information technology expenses and take advantage of economies of scale through consolidation of their IT assets. The edgeBOX solution allows our customers to very quickly realize increased efficiencies, reduced complexity, and drastically lowered ongoing service costs," said Mike Hanson, president of Enflux Technologies. "We are excited to work with Critical Links to offer the edgeBOX solution to the under-served small and medium business segment in the Midwest. The edgeBOX platform affords our clients the opportunity to embrace cutting edge capabilities at an affordable price."
