Ericom Delivers Secure Office Applications Access to Barnsley College Teaching Staff

Ericom's Server-based Computing solution gains further recognition in the education IT domain

Droitwich, Worcestershire, UK (July 17, 2007) - Ericom is pleased to announce it has been selected to supply its PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView product to Barnsley College as part of the college's infrastructure, to deliver secure remote application access to teachers and staff. Barnsley College is an independent Further Education (FE) Corporation located in South Yorkshire, United Kingdom and provides A levels, vocational and higher education courses to approximately 8,000 students. It also has specialist facilities for Arts, Music and Music Technology, Sports and Physical Education and has links to the University Centre Barnsley.

Working in conjunction with Barnsley's IT service provider and Ericom Platinum partner, IT Solutions of Leeds, Barnsley's IT department reviewed several solutions, rejecting Citrix on the basis of cost, Sun's Tarantella on ease of use and Sonicwall on capabilities. Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView was a clear front runner when cost, features and ease of use were taken into the equation.

Phase one of deploying PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView will allow teaching staff to gain secure on-demand access to a range of windows based applications across the campus.
