Chromebooks Now Have Easier Access to PC Apps

Do you really need to use Windows applications to be productive at the office or at school? If so, Ericom’s AccessNow offers Chromebook users straightforward access to those tried and true PC applications on virtualized desktops – right now!

Productivity with Chromebooks is now a reality for the business-conscious and the cost savings from maintaining PCs and updating software will start kicking in immediately for small businesses and larger enterprises.

Ericom’s AccessNow runs entirely within a browser and works natively with Chrome, Safari, IE (with Chrome Frame plug-in), Firefox or other browsers with HTML5 and WebSockets support. Java, Flash, Silverlight or any other underlying technology need not be installed on the end-user device.

Eran Heyman, Ericom Software’s CEO says: “Ericom AccessNow overcomes an inherent IT challenge. It finally enables organizations to deliver access to computing resources from anywhere, using an ever-increasing variety of end-point devices, including those that only have a browser rather than a full operating system, such as Chromebooks. We are seeing tremendous interest in this new product. Through this innovative product release, we are enabling access to hosted applications and virtual desktops to become more secure, flexible and, above all, simple — regardless of the hosting platform.”
