Many corporations and companies prohibit employees from installing outside software on company computers. That prohibition has long been a problem for digital editions that require users to install a such application such Newsstand, Inc., or Zinio. Newsstand responded today with iBrowse, its version of browser-based digital editions that don’t require installing such software.
- “iBrowse is especially appealing for controlled circulation magazines whose readership is often based in small businesses or large corporations, including those using Apple’s Macintosh. For subscribers working in companies with rigorous IT security standards, iBrowse eliminates firewall and administrative rights issues that would otherwise inhibit downloading an executable reader to an employee’s desktop, laptop or tablet PC,” said Newsstand, Inc., CEO Kit Webster in a press release.
