Ericom Connect 7.3 Extends Enterprise IT Infrastructure

By Michael Guta

When Ericom launched Connect in March of this year, it was the first-ever enterprise grade managed access solution serving 100,000 concurrent sessions per server: ten-fold the management capacity of Citrix and VMware. Version 7.3 of Ericom Connect delivers a new level of remote access management for enterprises and service providers.

Robert Young, Research Director, ITSM and Client Virtualization Software, IDC, commented, “Ericom Connect 7.3 stands to allow IT organizations to more effectively support large-scale deployments and manage the evolving requirements of today’s users across distributed environments, while also maintaining the simplicity that smaller-sized IT organizations require.”

Version 7.3 builds on the elastic scalability of Connect, making it possible for enterprises and service providers to distribute their IT infrastructure across multiple data center locations and expand their cloud capabilities with access management of multiple tenants on a single Ericom Connect system.

Some of the new features include:

Support for multi-datacenter architecture that lets organizations onboard branch offices and remote users from a single installation console for standalone environments and branch offices that are part of Ericom Connect Grid. Users are routed to the nearest IT resources, efficiently and securely.

Simplified deployment to the cloud with support for the SQL APIs from both Azure and AWS. The integration process in 7.3 allows customers to migrate to the cloud by standing up an environment without having to stop to set up the SQL environment. Depending on the platform, a cloud formation template can be created that sets up the entire environment.

Multi-tenancy support so service providers can start offering managed and unmanaged access solutions such as Desktop as a Service (DaaS). As for enterprises, they can use this feature to manage different businesses, locations and critical applications separately yet still manage them centrally. This not only protect segments of the enterprise that require more security, but it gives administrators the ability to assign rights and privileges to users based on security profiles and organizational hierarchy.

“Our vision, unique approach and integration with both Amazon and Microsoft Azure and cloud SQL database services, align with the kind of journey that many of today’s organizations seek - one involving an easy and gradual migration to the cloud,” said Joshua Behar, Ericom President and CEO.

Ercom Connect makes enterprise grade functionalities available in a 100 percent Web-based, client-less experience. That means web-based end user access and administrative management from any web browser - without the hassle of plug-ins and patches. And as the digital ecosystem continues to move away from on-device applications, the Ericom Connect platform delivers one of the most reliable options for users of any size.
