MANCHESTER, N.H., March 16, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As COVID-19 forces businesses en masse to work remotely, Minim— the AI-driven smart home security and managed WiFi platform— today offers 4 months of free services to its customers and companies around the globe. Minim for Remote Workers is a WiFi system that helps employers and employees ensure quality, secure, and supported connectivity in the home.

"During this unprecedented time, we want to help companies like us who are making the responsible choice to go fully remote," said Gray Chynoweth, CEO of Minim. "Minim can transform home WiFi into a business-grade network that supports reliable video conferencing, secures devices, and bridges the gap with the company's IT department. We hope offering Minim for Remote Workers for free will help our customers and many other businesses safeguard continuity."

Remote workers can plug a Minim-enabled router into their existing home gateway and connect productivity devices to a new network that is co-managed by their employer. With the Minim mobile app, employees can run speed tests, check device signal strength, get automated network recommendations, see a timeline of network events, and review security scans. For the employer, the Minim web app grants the same view, plus device bandwidth usage over time, router changes, router settings management, and more.

"Forcivity's national customer base depends on our staff to help them optimize vital sales and support operations," said Steve Baines, CEO of Forcivity, a new Minim for Remote Workers customer. "As a company, we are planning and executing contingency plans to enable remote work for an unknown period of time. With tools like Minim, we're able to ensure that this shift to working from home doesn't compromise security or worker productivity."

Minim's AI-driven cloud platform performs real-time monitoring for comprehensive network-level protection from router attacks, ransomware, network intrusions, trojans, botnets, worms, spyware, known exploits, and SSID spoofing.

"As a certified partner of Minim, we are pleased to extend this offer to our customers," said Gerry Ford, President of DoubleRadius. "DoubleRadius is an employee-owned business that cares about the health and safety of our team. As our employees go remote, we plan to expand our internal Minim usage to ensure a quality at-home working experience. We will encourage our community to do the same."
