SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- IGEL, provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, and Ericom Software, a leader in secure web and application access solutions, today announced an expanded partnership focused on delivering modern and secure access to server-based applications and legacy host systems. As a result of the agreement, Ericom's PowerTerm® terminal emulation solution, part of its portfolio of remote application access and remote browser isolation solutions, has been embedded into IGEL OS and integrated with IGEL software-defined endpoints, giving mutual customers secure and seamless access to legacy applications through an easy-to-use, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI).
"Many customers across industry sectors including retail, manufacturing, and transportation and logistics, continue to rely on legacy host systems and applications and need to access those applications simply and seamlessly," said Simon Townsend, Chief Marketing Officer, IGEL. "With our extended Ericom partnership, IGEL is asserting its commitment to companies that want to simplify and extend legacy access functionality while improving endpoint manageability and control. By integrating Ericom PowerTerm technology with IGEL OS and IGEL endpoint devices we are helping these customers meet their security and access needs with a modern solution that is both secure and productive."
Ericom PowerTerm terminal emulator solutions are available in multiple software editions to support the host, security, server, and productivity needs of any environment. Embedded in IGEL software-defined endpoints, Ericom PowerTerm streamlines terminal emulation workflows, automating repetitive tasks, and freeing valuable time.
Ericom PowerTerm's terminal display emulation mirrors the display of the chosen host terminal, presenting host applications exactly as they appear on an actual terminal. Once the endpoint device connects to a host computer, you can perform all host operations as if the endpoint device is an actual host terminal. See more information here.
