Enables easy integration of Windows applications and desktops within portals, which are accessible from any end-point device, including PCs, laptops, Macs, Chromebook, iPad / iPhone, Android, RIM Blackberry / Playbook and more

Closter, NJ, (Oct 25, 2011) - Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and desktop virtualization solutions, today announced the availability of Ericom AccessNow for Enterprise Portals, the newest capability of the AccessNow HTML5 product family. AccessNow for Enterprise Portals enables the integration of Windows applications and desktops within leading enterprise portals, including IBM WebSphere Portal, Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle WebCenter Suite, Oracle WebLogic Portal, SAP NetWeaver, JBoss Enterprise Portal platform, and others.

Enterprise Portals, which provide company-wide frameworks for integrating data, people and processes across the organizational boundaries, have become vital communication and collaboration organizational resources. Portals must provide users with instant and intuitive access to IT resources, including Windows applications and desktops, from anywhere, using any device.

Ericom AccessNow for Enterprise Portals transforms Windows applications and desktops into portlets, providing users with seamless, portal-based web access to business-critical resources. Ericom’s underlying technology runs entirely within a browser and works natively with any browser with HTML5 and WebSockets support. Moreover, it does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight or any other underlying technology installed on the end-user device, significantly lowering IT overhead.

“Enterprise portals provide answers to critical business needs. They increase employee’s effectiveness, enhance the efficiency of corporate communication processes and enable productive collaboration. Consolidating access to Windows based IT resources from within enterprise portal portlets, such as Excel, Word and line of business applications, enables users to remain connected, content, and productive, wherever they are, and via whatever device they are using” said Eran Heyman, Ericom’s founder and CEO. “With the central importance of Enterprise portals, the diversity of end-user devices and the pressure to control IT expense and overhead, we strongly believe that AccessNow for Enterprise Portals brings exceptional new value to organizations of all sizes and types”.

More benefits of Ericom AccessNow for Enterprise Portals:

1. Supports client devices running Windows, Linux, Mac, Chrome OS (HTML5 client is the only way to support Google’s Chrome OS and Chromebook), iPad / iPhone, Android, RIM Blackberry / Playbook and any other OS

2. Runs as pure HTML on desktops, netbooks, laptops, thin clients, tablets and smart phones, and supports Intel x86, ARM or any other CPU architecture

3. IT staff does not have to manage / maintain separate product versions and updates for multiple clients (end-point operating systems) – an HTML5 browser is all that is required
