Ericom AccessNow 3.1 Brings Unprecedented Performance to HTML5-based Clientless Remote Access to Windows Applications, from Any Device, Anywhere

Ericom Software, a global leader in Application Access and Desktop Virtualization solutions, today announced the release of Ericom AccessNow 3.1. The latest AccessNow release provides secure and easy-to-use and deploy browser-based access to Windows applications and desktops running on Windows Terminal Services / RDS, physical and virtual desktops, and on VDI platforms including VMware View, Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect, Citrix XenApp and others.

AccessNow 3.1 sets a new standard in performance and usability which exceeds that of many native, device-specific RDP clients. Powered by pure HTML5 technology, AccessNow completely eliminates the need to download, install or configure any software on the end-user device. This fact simplifies and lowers maintenance and support load for IT admins and helpdesk staff who feel overburdened by having to support an ever-increasing variety of user devices.

The new version also delivers dramatic improvements in productivity and user experience. Video is clearer and smoother and the rendering engine has been extensively optimized, so users can work at interactive speeds even when performing resource-intensive, graphics-rich tasks. AccessNow 3.1 also incorporates enhanced compression and acceleration technology developed for the newest release of Ericom Blaze version 3.1.

Other notable features in this release include:

  • Time zone redirection – uses client time zone in remote applications or desktops
  • Print screen functionality is available within the remote session via keyboard shortcut
  • Additional touch and tap gestures are supported (e.g., hold and swipe to drag an object)
  • Enhanced multilingual support

Eran Heyman, Ericom Software’s CEO commented: “AccessNow 3.1 continues to cement Ericom’s position as the clear leader among browser-based remote access solution providers. With Ericom AccessNow, the vast majority of end-users and IT staff have all the reasons to reap the benefits of a secure, mobile, zero-overhead web client, and very few reasons to rely only on native RDP and other remote access clients.”
