With Ericom AccessNow, a wide variety of HTML5-enabled end-user devices, including Chromebooks, iPad/iPhone, Android-based devices and RIM Playbook, can be used for accessing virtual and session-based desktops and applications

 
Ericom Software, a leading global provider of application access and virtualization solutions, today announced that Ericom AccessNow — its pure HTML5 RDP client — can now access the Remote Desktop (RD) Connection Broker in Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services. With Ericom AccessNow, RD Connection Broker enables organizations of all sizes to deliver secure and centrally managed, on-demand access to Windows applications and virtual desktops delivered through Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services, from any HTML 5-enabled device supporting the WebSocket protocol.
 
With more organizations giving their user base access to centrally hosted applications and virtual desktops, the combination of Ericom AccessNow and Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services offers a solution that improves remote worker efficiency while simplifying regulatory compliance. In addition, this solution allows a broad range of client devices to access a remote desktop environment, increasing deployment flexibility.
 
"This offering increases productivity and benefits IT organizations and users alike," said Eran Heyman, Ericom founder and CEO. "We remain fully committed to our market and vision of Simplicity, Speed and Ubiquity, providing a full featured and cost-effective solution unifying access to computing resources using the widest possible variety of end-user devices."
 
Ericom AccessNow provides the following IT benefits:
 
Support for user devices running Windows, Linux, Mac, Chrome OS, Chromebooks, iPad / iPhone, Android, Playbook and any other OS that supports an HTML5 compatible browser. This support is independent of whether the device is Intel x86, ARM or any other CPU architecture.
 
IT staff do not have to manage or maintain separate product versions and updates for an ever-increasing variety of end-user devices; an HTML5 browser that supports WebSockets is all that is required.
Companies with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies can continue to use the Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services platform.
 
"Consumerization of IT requires IT departments to manage and support an increasing variety of end-user computing devices, while protecting access to corporate data and staying compliant with regulatory requirements," said Manlio Vecchiet, Director, Windows Server and Virtualization, at Microsoft. "Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services enables secure access to Windows applications and desktops in the datacenter, and Ericom AccessNow offers additional device support and deployment flexibility."
