Ericom Releases AccessToGo™ - Fastest RDP Client for iPad, iPhone and Android
Delivers unparalleled acceleration of screen displays with complex graphics such as maps, photos, radiology images, 3D images, movies, Adobe Flash and PDF files
Closter, NJ, (June 21, 2011) - Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and desktop virtualization solutions, today announced the release of Ericom AccessToGo™, a mobile client that provides secure, on-demand access to Windows applications and desktops running on terminal servers, virtual desktops and workstations. Powered by Ericom Blaze™ RDP compression and acceleration technology, Ericom’s mobile client accelerates complex graphic displays on iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android tablets and phones, up to speeds ten times faster than other mobile RDP clients. Ericom’s customer base currently includes thousands of companies that are using Ericom Blaze to improve RDP performance from Windows, Mac, Linux and Windows CE clients.
In addition to providing secure mobile access to physical and virtual desktops and to terminal servers, Ericom AccessToGo delivers a unique offering provided by no other mobile RDP client vendor – an SSL gateway at no cost. Ericom Secure Gateway is a fast and flexible SSL gateway that is easy to install and configure. Ericom Secure Gateway supports any target Windows OS including XP, Windows 7, 2003, 2008, 2008 R2 and does not require any additional Microsoft licensing.
Eran Heyman, Ericom Software’s CEO explained: “In launching AccessToGo, Ericom is expanding our exemplary RDP client portfolio with a mobile client offering that accelerates the delivery of graphics-rich applications and content via a consistent user interface, to the most popular smartphones and tablet platforms from Apple and Google. AccessToGo provides best-in-class performance for viewing and interacting with maps, photos, radiology images, Acrobat files (.pdf), and other graphics-rich applications over low bandwidth and high latency networks, including WAN, and remote or cellular connections.”
AccessToGo is currently available via Apple Store/iTunes and Google Play App Store. Ericom expects to make further announcements regarding the availability of AccessToGo clients for additional mobile platforms in the coming months.
Ericom AccessToGo reduces IT overhead for organizations supporting users with a variety of mobile device types (BYOD), as it provides the same UI across iOS (Apple), Android and future platforms. When working in standard RDP mode, Ericom AccessToGo is free and is as fast as, or faster than other mobile RDP clients. When working in Ericom Blaze mode, Ericom AccessToGo is up to 10x faster than standard mobile RDP clients. To take advantage of Ericom Blaze technology, one needs to install the Ericom Blaze Server component on the target machine.
“Our implementation of Ericom Blaze has been a huge success.” said Jeff Lake, Systems Administrator at FCX Performance, Inc. “Many of our smaller branches with low bandwidth connections have seen major improvements with websites that have Flash and other heavy graphic content.”
Lake concluded, “We plan to continue rolling out Blaze software to all thin clients, laptops and PCs in the company, including iPad and Android devices.”
