Ericom Announces Next Generation Desktop Virtualization Solution


Empowers virtualization across the organization

Closter, NJ (July 17, 2007) - Ericom Software, a leading provider of Enterprise-Wide Application Access solutions, today announces the release of its next generation desktop virtualization solution, PowerTerm® WebConnect DeskView. Ericom's solution provides secure anywhere, anytime access to virtual desktops running on industry leading virtualization platforms including VMware, Microsoft, Xen and others.

PowerTerm WebConnect DeskView enables companies to achieve 100% effective desktop virtualization by complementing Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI) with Windows Terminal Services. For organizations implementing Terminal Services, typically only 70-80% of users are able to fully leverage its benefits. The remaining percentage of users cannot leverage Terminal Services because of application compatibility issues and underlying IT requirements. Alternatively, organizations with VDI environments are often prevented from deploying enterprise-wide virtualization due to high costs, power consumption and space requirements.

The PowerTerm WebConnect product line empowers organizations to implement a combination of Virtual Desktops and Windows Terminal Servers, enabling virtualization across the organization in the most cost-effective manner. By implementing enterprise-wide desktop virtualization, organizations can reduce the cost of managing PCs, provide secure remote access, and facilitate business continuity and disaster recovery implementations.

PowerTerm WebConnect features include:

  • Enterprise-wide Application Access: Virtual Desktops, Windows Terminal Servers, Legacy Hosts
  • Centralized Administration and Management of Virtualization Platforms
  • Management of Virtual Desktops and Desktop Pools
  • Portal Integration: Application access from within IBM WebSphere Portal, IBM Lotus Expeditor, Oracle Portal and other JSR-168 compatible portals
  • Enhanced Security: SSL VPN integration, two-factor authentication, RSA SecurID® support
  • Windows / Linux Desktop and Thin Client Support

Eran Heyman, Ericom Founder and CEO commented, "Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect DeskView provides organizations with a robust and cost-effective solution for virtual desktop deployments. By supporting a mixed infrastructure of Virtual Desktops and Windows Terminal Servers, PowerTerm WebConnect bridges the gap between partial and complete virtualization - empowering any organization to virtualize its entire IT environment."
