DALLAS, February 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

2X Software, a global leader in virtual desktop and application delivery solutions, today announced that the company has launched the free 2X Client for RDP / Remote Desktop application for Google Chrome. The 2X Client for Chrome provides you with simple and secure remote access to your Microsoft Windows desktop using RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) whenever you want, wherever you are.

The 2X Client for RDP / Remote Desktop is specifically designed for Chrome, making it compatible across different platforms such as Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Chrome OS. The 2X Client for Chrome provides a direct connection without using a public gateway, making your computing experience secure and private. It's the first self contained, fully installable Chrome application allowing RDP connections. Additionally, as a user you can have multiple connections running concurrently and even use the application offline.

"We are very excited for the full version launch of the 2X Client for Chrome app. Our goal was to develop an easy to use, secure way for mobile device users to connect to their desktop and applications. It was equally important for us to provide the app for free, and I'm happy that we have achieved both objectives. We are proud to supply the Chrome user community with a 2X solution which will hopefully improve their computing experience."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real?

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...

Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.
