Ericom AccessNow™ Enables the City of Panama City, Florida to Roll out Chromebooks and BYOD

Ericom's HTML5 RDP zero client enables browser-based access to Windows applications and the Cloud from Chromebooks, iPads, Androids, Laptops; No software installation required on end-user devices

CLOSTER, N.J., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and desktop virtualization solutions, today announced that the City of Panama City, Florida has chosen Ericom AccessNow to empower city employees with remote, browser-based access to mission-critical municipal and other hosted Windows applications from Chromebooks, laptops and mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones and Android smartphones and tablets.  The solution, which is supported on Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and other HTML5 browsers, does not require Java, Flash, or any other underlying technology on the end-user device, and enables successful Chromebook and BYOD implementation.

Richard Ferrick, Network Administrator for the City of Panama City said, "My team is privileged with introducing the city to cloud computing and other technologies. Rolling out Chromebooks with AccessNow HTML5-based access presents a big asset to the City. We have been evaluating AccessNow on Chromebooks and other devices for remote access to various Windows-based apps and Google Apps for Government, and just love it."

Ferrick added, "The overall cost and ease of administration makes the Chromebook-AccessNow solution a winner. Our objective is to offer users simple and flexible remote access into our systems, from any location." Ferrick continued, "Using Chromebooks and other devices, our department heads and staff, including a team with the critical responsibility of monitoring lift stations, can attend meetings throughout the City, log in remotely and take care of business as if they're sitting in the office."

Brian Berns, Ericom Software's President and COO said: "With the City of Panama City as a new customer, we're thrilled that another government agency is benefiting from the combined Chromebook and AccessNow capabilities. A growing number of government, education, healthcare and other types of organizations find AccessNow to be of great value in facilitating quick and easy roll out of Chromebooks, BYOD initiatives and remote access in general. In addition, many sites which have been evaluating Chromebooks require our HTML5-based access solution to access Windows applications and desktops from Chromebooks and any other device types without having to install any software on the end-user device."

Ericom AccessNow (www.EricomAccessNow.com) eliminates the need to install and maintain remote access client software, and provides direct cost savings, ease of implementation, enhanced security, and greater flexibility provided by a pure browser-based solution.

Ericom AccessNow provides multiple benefits to organizations of all sizes, including: 

  • Support for browser-based access from anywhere and almost any user device, including Chromebooks, Windows and Linux PCs and laptops, Mac, iPads / iPhones, Android devices and others
  • Same look and feel on all supported device types, reducing training and help desk costs
  • Enables IT staff to publish Windows applications and desktops to Chromebooks (which do not natively support access to Windows-based resources)
  • Deployment support for locked-down end-points, kiosks and computers for which the user does not have administrative privileges
  • Simple, easy and inexpensive to maintain; does not require any infrastructure for deployment, upgrades or patches; simply put new version on the server

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long dev...
Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed.
