Ericom AccessNow extends the Keepod desktop with anywhere, anytime, browser-based access to hosted Windows applications and desktops
Closter, NJ and London, UK, February 14, 2013 - Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and desktop virtualization solutions, and Keepod Ltd, the producer of the award-winning Keepod desktop, today announced a partnership which provides customers and partners with high performance HTML5 browser-based RDP access to centrally, and cloud-hosted, Windows desktops and applications running on Windows Terminal Servers / RDS / VDI, from Keepod devices.

Deploying the Keepod desktop enhanced with Ericom’s HTML5-based zero-client RDP access solution (AccessNow) helps organizations reduce the costs of enterprise desktop acquisition, operating, and management.
