Stocks in this article: ELNK

ATLANTA, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EarthLink, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELNK), a leading IT services and communications provider, today announced that longtime customer the Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC) has added EarthLink Cloud Hosting to support its critical applications and upgraded to a private EarthLink MPLS network for voice and data to run its statewide operation and keep pace with the increasing demand for its services.

While April is Autism Awareness Month, the need for support from the Autism Society of North Carolina, one of the oldest non-profits serving families and individuals on the autism spectrum, is year round and growing by the day. With recent studies indicating that 1 in 70 children in N.C. will be affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), more and more families rely on the advocacy, training, education and direct supports that ASNC provides. The Autism Society of North Carolina, an EarthLink customer since 2004, recently added EarthLink Cloud Hosting placing its fundraising, finance and database applications securely in the cloud, to improve access to critical applications and boost employee productivity. To keep up with demand, ASNC also now leverages a secure, robust EarthLink 10-site private MPLS network featuring Voice over IP, 4 digit inter-office dialing and data sharing.

"The cloud has definitely changed the way that we do business because being able to access data remotely is a much more efficient use of time," said Tracey Sheriff, CEO of the Autism Society of North Carolina. "From an employee standpoint, it's much more productive because they can now work and access data from home or different office locations."

ASNC's MPLS network not only reliably and cost-effectively delivers the voice and data services needed to conduct its statewide mission, but it also ensures HIPAA compliance and privacy for its clients' medical records. Depending on the size and needs of each ASNC site, whether Camp Royall, the country's oldest autism camp, a regional service office or the Raleigh headquarters, EarthLink customizes the bandwidth for each location.

"We receive more than 12,000 calls annually for assistance, and EarthLink is the key vendor that ensures that we are responsive to those calls," Sheriff said "We rely on the EarthLink team to help us stay connected to our clients and families, and fulfill our mission."
