  • Enterprise-wide Access

  • Full support for Microsoft RemoteFX, enhancing the user-experience
    Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with Microsoft RemoteFX provides a great user experience over the local area network (LAN) and very fast WAN. To complement this, PowerTerm WebConnect's Ericom Blaze technology delivers a great user experience over the WAN, WIFI, GPRS and other networks, making it a perfect technological complement to RemoteFX.      Learn more
  • Enhanced Security
    Provides enterprise-level security measures with comprehensive security features. These include real-time intruder monitoring, logging and event recording, Single Sign-On and Kerberos. For an additional layer of security, integrates with leading SSL VPNs and RADIUS, RSA® SecurID®, SecurEnvoy® SecureAccess and SecurICE two-factor authentication support within PowerTerm WebConnect's Windows native client, and more. With built-in support for SSL, all connections from the client to the Terminal Servers can be encrypted, making them secure across public networks; other SBC solutions offer a secure server specifically as a stand-alone server only. Moreover, with built in SSL, administrators can permit secure connections to servers that do not support SSL connections.      View Demo | 30-day Free Trial
  • Ericom Blaze - RDP compression and acceleration.

Ericom Blaze delivers superior local PC-like experience and fast remote desktop connections, while reducing RDP bandwidth consumption by up to 10 times - across WANs and congested LANs. Ericom Blaze acceleration can be applied to both published desktops and published applications (seamless windows).      View Demo | 30-day Free Trial
  • FIPS Support
    PowerTerm WebConnect uses Microsoft's RDP client - the de facto standard remote desktop protocol client in FIPS 140-2 compliant WinXP SP3 and Win 2003 software, and higher.
  • Integrated with Microsoft App-V
    Fully integrated with Microsoft's leading application streaming and virtualization platform to seamlessly and easily stream virtual applications to clients and servers. Easily publish and launch packaged applications, from a browser-based interface (Application Portal), rich client interface (Application Zone) and Desktop and Start Menu icons. Applications can be streamed to run locally, on a Session Host (Terminal Server) and on a remote virtual or physical desktop.
  • Load Balancing
    The PowerTerm WebConnect Load Balancer is an easy to use MMC snap-in module, featuring an administrative interface that allows for easy management and monitoring of configured Terminal Servers. PowerTerm WebConnect Enterprise allocates the most appropriate server, optimizes server connection sessions, and prevents server overloads and downtime, improving productivity and workflow. As an enterprise-wide offering, PowerTerm WebConnect can easily handle load balancing for up hundreds of Terminal Servers.      Learn more about Ericom's Load Balancer
  • Universal Printing
    Ericom provides the option to integrate with leading universal printing solutions, including triCerat and Net2Printer.
  • Extended LDAP Support
    PowerTerm WebConnect supports Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and most LDAP compatible directory servers such as Novell eDirectory and OpenLDAP. PowerTerm WebConnect also supports untrusted domains as well as one-way trust and child domains. PowerTerm WebConnect Enterprise can maintain its own database of users and groups, but also automatically identifies user definitions. Using LDAP, the system administrator can import the existing network configuration, removing the need for manual rekeying and saving significant time in the initial setup. Moreover, PowerTerm WebConnect Enterprise can also identify a user for authentication even if moved between OUs (Organizational Units). If the network user is disabled, then the WebConnect server will not allow this user to log into the system.      View Demo | 30-day Free Trial
