Enables secure access to business applications and offers simultaneous multi-desktop viewing, transforming the iPad into a complete business tool
MILPITAS, CA - May 26, 2010 - Array Networks Inc., a global leader in secure application delivery, today announced the launch of the DesktopDirect iPad application, which enables full remote desktop access for enterprise users. Businesses can now provide employees with direct access to their work computers and all Windows applications via the iPad, without risking data leakage - effectively transforming the iPad into a comprehensive business tool. Designed specifically for the iPad, the application takes advantage of the iPad’s full screen size to provide a complete view of remote computer desktops, thereby greatly enhancing productivity for users accessing business applications that are not available for the iPad.
Array Networks designed the DesktopDirect iPad application with two key enterprise challenges in mind: full application availability and security. With just a few clicks, iPad users can work within the familiar environment of their office desktops, from any remote location. Because the application only transmits video, keyboard, and mouse information, Windows compatibility problems and security risks are eliminated completely. Applications and data stay on the office computer, extending existing security and compliance standards to the remote employee’s location.
The DesktopDirect iPad application also supports access for multiple desktops, boosting productivity for even those users managing more than one corporate computer. The application saves time by enabling multi-tasking among corporate computer desktops, and also enables users to access computers when they’re turned off – saving energy costs while providing 24/7 access.
“The iPad provides a lightweight, elegant computing platform for consumers,” said Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks. “With the DesktopDirect iPad application and multi-desktop viewing, businesses can cost-effectively provide those same consumers, who are also their employees, a secure way to get work done from outside the office.”
The DesktopDirect iPad application is currently available on the Apple iTunes Store.
