DROITWICH and BRACKNELL, England, April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Ericom's pure AccessNow HTML5 based client enables browser-based access to both Cloud apps and hosted Windows Applications, from PCs, Macs, Google Chromebooks, Apple iPad / iPhone and Android Devices
Ericom Software, a leading global provider of application access and virtualization solutions and Ancoris, a leading UK-based Google Apps and Cloud Services Provider today announced a partnership agreement that gives Ancoris the rights to resell Â Ericom's AccessNow, a high performance HTML5 RDP zero client and PowerTerm WebConnect, a centralized management solution and the #1 Alternative to Citrix - to organisations that are turning to native cloud applications but still relying heavily on Windows-based applications and desktops. As an Ericom reseller, Ancoris will sell Ericom products for deployments both internally/on-premise and in the Cloud.
Ericom AccessNow provides access toÂ Cloud-hostedÂ and on-premise Windows resources from any end-point device running an HTML5 compliant browser (Chrome, Safari, IE, Firefox, etc). As a zero client, AccessNow runs entirely within the browser and does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight or any other underlying technology installed on the end-user device, significantly lowering device management costs and complexities. Â
"Ancoris is excited about enriching our offering with Ericom's pure HTML5 RDP client. Today's businesses need to support user mobility and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies which are having a major impact on IT," says David McLeman, Managing Director. "Our clients are switching their messaging and collaboration applications to cloud services such as Google Apps for Business which they can access directly through the browser on any device (PC, Apple Mac, iPad, Google Chromebook, Smartphones). Ericom AccessNow is the ideal solution enabling IT to support their legacy Windows applications in the same environment without having to install client software." He added, "It's simply the perfect solution for on-the-road enterprise workers and organisations across the board."
Ian Platt, Ericom Managing Director for the UK explained, "Ericom is delighted to partner with Ancoris as one of the most prominent Google Enterprise Partners in the UK.
