Apr 02, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Ericom Software, a supplier of Application Access and Virtualization solutions, has announced the general availability of the new version of its HTML5-based RDP client Ericom AccessNow version 2.0.
In a release, the Company said that Ericom AccessNow provides browser-based access to applications and desktops running on Windows Terminal Services / RDS, virtual desktops on Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESX and other hypervisors, and VDI platforms including VMware View, Quest vWorkspace and Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect.
AccessNow runs entirely within a browser and works natively with Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and any other browser with HTML5 support. As a true zero RDP client, Ericom AccessNow requires no software installation or any underlying technology on the end-point device, such as Java, Flash, Silverlight, etc. This simplifies and lowers the IT department maintenance and support workload and makes Ericom AccessNow an ideal solution for over-extended IT admins and helpdesk staff, which are expected to support an ever-increasing variety of user devices, the Company said.
Ericom AccessNow also enables Cloud hosting companies and DaaS providers to deliver virtual desktops as a service to any end-user device at any location, supporting the BYOD trend. In addition, it enables ISVs to SaaS-enable their Windows Client / Server applications, in support of customers that are migrating to a Cloud infrastructure.
"Agosto is one of the nation's oldest, most progressive and fastest-growing Cloud and Google Apps consulting firms. As we move more companies to the Cloud, and our clients become increasingly device-agnostic, we believe that Ericom's products, particularly Ericom AccessNow will be a key part of our strategy," Irfan Khan, CTO of Agosto, Inc. said. "We're witnessing a tectonic computing paradigm shift, as more and more organizations transition to Google apps and other Cloud services, while still having to retain use of their Windows-based applications. Ericom AccessNow helps bridge the gap and enables our clients to get the best of both worlds"
