AppLayer was founded in 2009 to provide Cloud services to a number of verticals with specific requirements.
The primary focus is on cloud hosting, hosted desktop, cloud applications (Exchange, SharePoint, Dynamics, Lync) and services are delivered using an integrated control panel.
Trusted partners include Microsoft, Citrix, IBM, Trend Micro and McAfee. Their core management tools include the use of Microsoft System Center 2012.
A central factor in AppLayer’s success has been through Security - offering solutions for both external and internal threats.
In 2011 AppLayer launched White Label Box - a partner focussed offering. Partners can resell a variety of services from Hosted Desktop to Private Cloud. This is managed by a central Cloud Control Panel which can also handle end-user billing.
In 2012 AppLayer released its first vertical specific service - RecruitBox for the recruitment sector. In addition to cloud services, recruitment application hosting and professional services - RecruitBox also offers tools to manage employee turnover, data theft prevention and employee monitoring as well as additional security regarding static vs mobile employees.
In 2013 the focus has been on Industry Clouds - developing cloud services which benefit the often unique needs of specific industries.
In 2014 AppLayer began work on their second generation control panel.
