SILICON VALLEY, Calif., April 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Join™, which delivers on-demand networking as a service to owners and tenants of Class A buildings to enable Smart Buildings and Smart Workplaces, is pleased to announce a new VPN service launching today in Beta free of charge to users. Join Extended Workplaces brings the security of Smart Workplaces to employees who are working from home.

The product is specifically for employees who work for building owners or who work for companies that are tenants in those office spaces. With a simple install of the VPN client application on their device, they can use the same authentication and login credentials from the office when working at home. This service gives them access to all the benefits of commercial internet and cloud applications while protecting their work from attack and intrusion.

By leveraging internet and cloud access technologies, advanced cybersecurity, and points of presence around the country that make up the Join™ cloud, and tunneling technology from the open source leader, Wireguard, Join Extended Workplaces VPN provides a fully supported solution for enabling working from home during the coronavirus crisis, and beyond, as employees return to the office, business travel, and flexible work arrangements. Join adheres to the highest data privacy standards, including those mandated by the strongest legislation in the country, the CCPA from California, where Join is headquartered.

"We want to help our customers and the entire community during this unprecedented crisis, and feel fortunate to have the assets and capabilities in place to be helpful to our community in this difficult moment," said Join Founder and CEO Karl May. "Our mission has been to create great customer experiences for professionals who rely increasingly on digital tools to do their work, and now we are extending the secure workplace to the home office. We are including this in all of our existing Smart Building and Smart Workplaces subscriptions, and offering it at no charge to our partners and to owners and operators in our commercial real estate community. In addition, we are reaching out to state officials for ways to serve during this crisis."

"During this time of unprecedented challenges confronting all of us, it's companies like Join that truly inspire me," stated Michael Beckerman, CEO, CREtech. "With so many things on all our minds right now, safely connecting to our work should be the last thing to worry about and thanks to Join, there is one less thing to stress about. Offering both short term relief during the pandemic and terrific long term strategic vision for our sector, I admire and appreciate all that the team at Join is doing to help so many people during this crisis," Beckerman concluded.

"Join is rising to the occasion to provide VPN at no charge for all of their commercial real estate clients and the broader community during this difficult time," said Mariel Ebrahimi, Co-Founder & CEO of DisruptCRE. "They are the hero and trusted advisor for companies who are now able to set up their teams at home with secure access to all the applications and tools they use in their office workplaces. Kudos to Join."

"Join has been a valuable thought leader with us at Realcomm including with the Real Estate Cyber Consortium (RECC) in the areas of Security and Privacy," said Jim Young, Founder and CEO of Realcomm. "We are certainly seeing security challenges explode with everyone working at home. I am very pleased to see Join making VPN capabilities available at no charge. It's great to see them not only continuing to show leadership, but also helping out the CRE community at this challenging time."
