CLOSTER, New Jersey, July 13, 2011 -

Enables pure
browser access to hosted Windows applications and desktops from the
widest variety of end-point devices, using any browser supporting
HTML5, including from Chrome OS and Chromebooks.

Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and
desktop virtualization solutions, today announced the general
availability of Ericom AccessNow - Ericom’s latest HTML5 RDP client
product - following the successful completion of its beta program
for the patent-pending, market-first pure HTML client.

Ericom AccessNow provides browser-based access to applications
and desktops running on Windows Terminal Services / RDS, and VDI
platforms on Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware and other hypervisors.
AccessNow runs entirely within a browser and works natively with
Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer (with Chrome Frame plug-in),
Firefox and any other browser with HTML5 and WebSockets support.
The solution does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight or any other
underlying technology installed on the end-user device.

Eran Heyman, Ericom Software’s CEO commented: “Ericom AccessNow
overcomes an inherent IT challenge. It finally enables
organizations to deliver access to computing resources from
anywhere, using an ever-increasing variety of end-point devices,
including those that only have a browser rather than a full
operating system, such as Chromebooks. We are seeing tremendous
interest in this new product. Through this innovative product
release, we are enabling access to hosted applications and virtual
desktops to become more secure, flexible and, above all, simple –
regardless of the hosting platform.”

Additional details on Ericom AccessNow:

  1. Supports client devices running Windows, Linux, Mac, Chrome OS
    (HTML5 client is the only way to support Google’s Chrome OS and
    Chromebooks) and any other OS
  2. Runs as pure HTML on netbooks, desktops, laptops and thin
    clients, and supports Intel x86, ARM or any other CPU
  3. Can also work via Ericom’s Secure Gateway when clients are
    outside the firewall
  4. IT staff does not have to manage or maintain separate product
    versions and updates for multiple clients (end-point operating
    systems); an HTML5 browser is all that is required.
  5. AccessNow also enables companies with BYOC (Bring Your Own
    Computer) policies to continue leveraging the Microsoft RDS

In June, Ericom also announced the general availability of
Ericom AccessNow™ for VMware View™, the market’s first HTML5 RDP
client for VMware View virtual desktops. Today’s announcement
addresses the release of Ericom AccessNow, the second generally
available product among a family of HTML5 RDP client products.
