The collaboration between the companies enables ASUS to bundle Ericom’s AccessNow software with many of its enterprise solutions available on Chromebooks, laptops, tablets, and other mobile devices.
Ericom’s AccessNow is the market’s first high-performance HTML5 RDP client, allowing users to access Windows desktops and applications from any device running an HTML5-compliant browser.
