Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

BT has hopped into bed and under the duvet with Microsoft to offer small businesses access to broadband and all sorts of saucy trimmings.

The package - BT Connected & Complete - provides small businesses with broadband access, applications, services, support and maintenance, all from a single source and on one bill. From around £50 a month per employee, small businesses can get broadband, Microsoft software and someone to install the gear and make sure it works.

"This one-stop shop approach answers the cries of SMEs nationwide who are struggling to take advantage of all the opportunities that IT presents," said BT Openworld MD Duncan Ingram. It will provide much-needed peace of mind with an affordable, predictable monthly charge for a more robust, secure IT infrastructure - and from having a trusted local resource to handle all installation, maintenance, and training issues."

Some £17m has been set aside to market and promote this new scheme, which will be available later this year. ®
