Ericom Extends its Leadership in HTML5 Browser-Based RDP Zero Client Technology -- Releases Version 2.0 of AccessNow

Ericom AccessNow™ delivers unprecedented flexibility in accessing hosted Windows applications and desktops from the widest variety of end-point devices

CLOSTER, N.J., March 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ericom Software, a leading global provider of Application Access and Virtualization solutions today announced the general availability of the new version of its HTML5-based RDP client – Ericom AccessNow version 2.0.

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. Devices supported include Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs, and any device that supports an HTML5 web browser (e.g., iPad / iPhone, Android, Google Chromebook, RIM Blackberry and Playbook, etc.).

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 growing BYOD trend. In addition, it enables ISVs to quickly SaaS-enable their Windows Client / Server applications, in support of customers that are migrating to a Cloud infrastructure.

Ericom AccessNow version 2.0 includes major enhancements and dozens of new features, for example: 

1.    Printing – print from the remote host to the end-point device.

2.    File Transfer – upload and download files between the remote host and the local, end-user device.

3.    HTTPS communication – AccessNow automatically switches to HTTPS communication if WebSockets are unavailable or cannot be used:

 

a.    Enables support for most SSL VPNs, such as Juniper and Cisco

 

b.    Supports browsers that don't implement WebSockets, such as Android native browser and Microsoft IE9 (previously IE9 required installation of Google Chrome Frame)

4.    Extended usability with finger gestures for touch devices – making it easy to page through presentations, quickly scroll through documents, and more

5.    Support for multiple keyboard locales

6.    URL redirection – clicking a web link in the remote session optionally opens it in a tab in the local browser

7.    Auto Full-Screen - automatically enter and leave full-screen mode

8.    Performance - improved display and audio performance

Ericom partners comment on this new release:

"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. commented,  "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" 

"As the leading provider of cloud-based solutions and services to government and corporate customers, and a Google Apps Premier Reseller, we're committed to supporting our customers' needs to access both the new generation of Web Apps, as well as their existing, Windows-based productivity applications," said Tony Bianco, President of Onix Networking's Cloud Computing Group. "Ericom AccessNow is an ideal solution as it enables our customers to take advantage of both infrastructures while protecting their existing IT investments.  Additionally, the solution offers our customers the benefit of new and flexible ways to carry out their tasks while lowering the support and IT workload."

"This new release of our zero-client, browser-based RDP client represents a major leap forward in extending and underscoring our technological leadership in this market," said Eran Heyman, Ericom Founder and CEO. "AccessNow version 2.0 demonstrates Ericom's vision of high performance, any-device, anywhere access to hosted Windows desktops and applications, and enables and accelerates the adoption of BYOD and other advanced working modalities and trends." Heyman concluded, "Last but not least, AccessNow empowers DaaS providers to deliver Cloud-based virtual desktops anywhere and on any device, and enables ISVs to easily SaaS-enable their Windows applications for the Cloud."

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
