Company Background

X.COMM is a privately owned company, formed in 1987, to market established dial-up communications software in the UK. Initially, X.COMM provided products for Async dial-up to IBM mainframes and AS/400's across X.25 Public Data Networks.

By the early nineties it was clear that access to the IBM systems in isolation was no longer enough. The enormous growth in Local Area Networks and the move towards LAN based applications meant that it was desirable, if not essential, that dial-up services should provide access to the LAN. Analysis of market requirements identified that there was no single product or technology that was going to satisfy everybody. Some would require the speed of ISDN while others needed the ubiquity of PSTN. Some applications were data intensive while others were screen intensive. With the knowledge gained through experience, X.COMM became early promoters of Shiva, Citrix, US Robotics, 3Com and Eicon.

In the noughties, we championed IPSec VPN through the NetScreen product set , and complemented that with the emerging SSL VPN in Neoteris. Understanding how bandwidth should be optimised we included Funk Steel Belt Radius. We were not alone. It wasn't long before Juniper Networks understood the power and value of these individual products. They purchased the companies and brought these technologies into their stable. In 2015 the SSL VPN are of the business was acquired by Pulse Secure, who are committed to the long term development of this technology.

Palo Alto Networks emerged in the last few years as an innovator in network security, offering organisations the ability to embrace Web 2.0 and maintain complete visibility and control, while significantly reducing total cost of ownership through device consolidation.

Today, the prevalence of the Internet and the increasing availability of connectivity services bring more options to the remote business user. X.COMM has helped our customers navigate through the maze to find you the most cost effective solution to you internet connectivity. In 2011 we launched LineBroker - tell us where you are, service level required and budget and we will give you a shortlist of internet connectivity solutions.  It’s as simple as that.

The Information Age has well and truly dawned. But with this golden age comes a more invidious and faceless crime. Hacking! Loss of data can mean the difference between success or failure for most businesses. Without a well defined and implemented security policy all businesses are vulnerable.

X.COMM continues to research and add to its comprehensive portfolio of products to meet these diverse needs. These products have been carefully selected from leading vendors so as to offer a choice of solutions for most applications.

X.COMM remains firmly involved at the forefront of current and future secure remote access technologies and is committed to ensuring that our customers reap the benefits of our experience. We listen to what our customers want and go out to the marketplace to find it.
