Closter, NJ, (July 29, 2008) - Ericom Software, a global leader in Application Access and Virtualization solutions and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, today announced that PowerTerm® WebConnect, Ericom’s presentation virtualization (SBC) and desktop virtualization (VDI) solution, now integrates with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager, which manages virtual machines running on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 and VMware ESX Server.
As an intuitive and cost-effective solution, Ericom’s PowerTerm WebConnect accelerates virtual desktop deployments to meet the expanding virtualization needs of today’s organizations. PowerTerm WebConnect provides secure and centrally managed access to Virtual Desktops, Windows Terminal Servers, Blade PCs, Remote Workstations and legacy host systems. By integrating PowerTerm WebConnect with Microsoft’s System Center Virtual Machine Manager, IT administrators will be able to centrally manage and deploy System Center managed virtual machines to users across the organization.
