Advanced Grid Architecture 

Ericom Connect uses grid technology to provide high availability, super scalability, and enhanced performance across all management servers / connection brokers. The distributed nature of the grid platform allows for scaling to support thousands of hosting servers and hundreds of thousands of user sessions - in fact, Ericom Connect can manage 100,000 users per management server vs. 1,000 users with Microsoft RD Connection Broker. Moreover, all business logic, state information, and health status is shared across each member of the grid.

Centralized Administration and Management 

Easy-to-use, web-based administration allows executive & technical staff to control who has access to what, while making sure everyone has access to the parts of the systems, resources and business tools they need in order to do their job on a daily basis.. This allows the IT Administrator to publish Windows applications and desktops as well as Linux desktops, customize the user environment, manage group policies, configure and monitor resource access, closely monitor user behavior and easily identify intruders. Additionally, customizable, delegated administration allows IT to assign rights and privileges to a variety of users in accordance with security profiles and organizational hierarchy, easily and efficiently. Multi-language support for the Administration Console, includes Asian and other languages.

Multi-tenant Ready 

Leverage one scalable installation (rather than installing several disparate silos) to deploy multiple private Ericom Connect tenant environments. One installation reduces IT overhead, configuration, and maintenance. Each tenant environment receives a dedicated URL and can manage isolated environments based on line of business, geographical locations, etc.

Easy End-user Analysis 

End users may use several Ericom portal interfaces to sign in to Ericom Connect and launch published resources.

  • AccessPortal - modernized web-based portal, which provides HTML5 browser-based access.
  • AccessPad - a native client that displays applications or desktops using server-side configuration settings. This client supports Ericom Blaze acceleration and non-accelerated mode.
  • AccessToGo - a native mobile application for iOS, Android and BlackBerry operating systems.

Enhanced Security 

Provides enterprise-level security measures with comprehensive security features, including real-time intruder monitoring, logging and event recording, Single Sign-On and Kerberos. For an additional layer of security, Ericom Connect integrates with leading SSL VPNs and RADIUS, RSA® SecurID®, SecurEnvoy®SecureAccess and SecurICE two-factor authentication support within Connect's Windows native client, as well as with special proprietary customer security systems. Additionally, built-in support for SSL / TLS 1.2, enables all connections from the client to the Terminal Servers to be encrypted, making them secure across public networks; other SBC solutions offer a secure server specifically as a stand-alone server only. Moreover, with built in SSL / TLS 1.2 administrators can permit secure connections to servers that do not support SSL connections.

Enhanced BI Reporting & Monitoring  

Ericom Connect provides powerful built-in tools for tracking, monitoring, measuring and troubleshooting, including rich visual reports and trends, dashboards, alerts, and more. You can log all user and session activity to provide business with a thorough view of how resources are used. Such data is useful for many use cases such as:

  • Tracking subscription based usage of applications and desktops
  • Monitor user productivity
  • Measure system workload and health
  • Troubleshoot issues (connectivity, assignment, errors, etc.)

Universal Printing 

Ericom bundles UniPrint, RDS-based leading printing solution, as part of its product installation and end-user software client. Additionally, Ericom provides the option to integrate with other leading universal printing solutions (e.g., triCerat, Net2Printer and others).

Microsoft Compatible 

Ericom Connect integrates with Microsoft's Active Directory for user authentication. If the network user is disabled, then the Connect server will not allow this user to log into the system.

  • Windows 10 Ready

File Collaboration with the Ericom Team Client 

The Ericom Team client allows multiple users to view and collaborate on files via a single remote session; perfect for remote learning and team projects. Each participant can take control of the live session when they have something to contribute, while others can view the ongoing session in real time.

Ericom Connect...The whole thing just feels really intuitive. You can create groups of applications, groups of servers, and groups of users that you then manage as a group. So you can associate a group of apps with AD items and apply groups to hosts
