A device to securely connect computers and the internet has been developed and launched by a Bradford IT business.
Exa Networks, based at Cottingley Business Park, near Bingley, has developed the Exa Static 3G SIM card which combines three capabilities to allow computers to work remotely to access the internet without being connected by a phone or broadband line.
The product also enables wireless computers to connect to an organisation’s internal computer network.
Exa Networks is targeting firms in the construction and security sectors, as well as schools and other academic institutions.
The company, which employs 16 staff, specialises in IT connectivity, networking and specialist software for businesses and the education sector, was founded in 2003.
Managing director Mark Cowgill said: “We’re very proud of Exa Static 3G. In the IT world it’s a real breakthrough which can be put to good use in many different industries.
“Exa Static 3G gives all the flexibility of 3G mobile broadband – computers which work almost anytime, anywhere, plus access to secure and filtered networks only usually available to people logging on through a land-line with a static IP address.”
