It appears that almost every company involved in VDI and Terminal Services is coming out with an HTML5 remote access client. In reality, this is not the case. There are, in fact, only a few HTML5 remote access clients that are actually available for use at this time. The rest are just betas or tech previews, or even just videos showing a proof of concept or a mock-up. Either way, a release date for an actual product is usually unavailable. As a result, we generally encounter little or no competition for Ericom AccessNow.
Still, prospective customers often do ask us how Ericom AccessNow compares with other HTML5 remote access products (existing or vaporware.) For this reason we have created a checklist that can be used for comparison and evaluation. Given the rapidly growing interest in this type of offering, I have decided to publish this checklist here. I’ve pre-filled the AccessNow column, and have set aside an additional empty column for whichever product you choose to evaluate:
I hope you find this checklist useful. Please let me know if you think I’ve left anything out.
