Nexus Group and Ericom Collaborate on Secure Application Access and Management 


The first secure access solution with built-in HTML5 remote access technology provides secure, on-demand remote access to applications, while lowering costs and increasing account control and privacy compliance

STOCKHOLM, Sweden and CLOSTER, N.J. (May 30, 2013) )
- Nexus Group, leaders in information security and identity management, and Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and desktop virtualization solutions, today announced their partnership to collaborate on delivering a new and unique offering that meets enterprise and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) demands for secure and scalable handling of application access in a world of both mobile devices and desktop computing.

This is the first available secure access solution with built-in HTML5 remote access offering to be brought to market. The solution combines the Nexus Hybrid Access Gateway, which leverages both the simplicity of Nexus’s virtual gateway appliance, and Ericom’s HTML5-based application virtualization technology. Ericom’s clientless remote access solution, AccessNow, runs entirely within any HTML5 capable browser. There is no software to download, install, or configure, significantly reducing IT support costs.

“When we first set off to design a new access offering that would meet the needs of Enterprises today and tomorrow, hybridization was a key word,” says Per Hägerö CTO of Nexus. “Enterprises are facing a challenge of providing access to on-premise applications and cloud applications from mobile and other devices in a secure and easy-to-use manner. Our new Nexus Hybrid Access Gateway with Ericom’s HTML5 technology provides a solution that makes providing access for the hybrid, mobile enterprise an easy task.”

Dan Shappir, CTO of Ericom said, “We’re very excited about partnering with Nexus. Our combined capabilities provide highly secure, browser-based access that is ubiquitous and client-free.” Shappir added, “This partnership confirms our mutual commitment to provide on-demand remote access to any client-server application, from anywhere, and any device running an HTML5-supported browser, such as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari, in a secure and simple manner.”

Nexus Hybrid Access Gateway enables the following and more:

  • Supports BYOD trend with device choice, access security and mobility
  • Eliminates the need for mobile device administration, as nothing is installed or configured on the end-user device
  • Enables access from PCs, laptops and locked down workstations without requiring local admin rights
  • Simplifies security solutions while increasing flexibility and choice
  • Provides authentication of user identify, authorization to access applications, access through encrypted connections and auditing of user activity
  • Simplified group maintenance and access rights management
