Local Internet securer launches its ASP

A LOCAL networking and Internet security company is throwing its hat into the Application Service Provider market at the inaugural Business to Business Trade Show.

BASScom managing director Rob Bass said the company would launch its Apps Online service at the 21 to 23 September show.

ASPs deploy, host, manage and rent application software to clients from centrally managed data centres. Clients access the applications through a browser or dedicated leased lines.

A rapidly growing group of software and hardware vendors, network service providers, Internet service providers and systems integrators are developing variations on the ASP theme.

“We are confident Apps Online offers our clients convenient and cost-effective access to technology and applications not previously available to them because of a lack of funds or in-house information technology expertise,” Mr Bass said.

“A monthly rental, when compared to the cost of purchasing, upgrading and supporting applications themselves, proves very attractive.”

IT trends forecaster International Data Corporation recently predicted spending in the high-end ASP market would reach $2 billion by 2003, representing a 91 per cent four year

compound annual growth rate.
