Oracle Virtual Desktop Client App for iPad Brings Highly Secure and Mobile Access to Virtual Desktops and Enterprise Applications
Oracle today announced the availability of Oracle Virtual Desktop Client App for iPad that enables secure access to virtual desktops managed by Oracle’s Sun Ray Software and Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.
Bringing full session mobility, Oracle Virtual Desktop Client App supports a broad range of enterprise applications, including network-intensive applications and those requiring full desktop browsers, such as Oracle’s Siebel CRM. By being hosted in the data center and rendered over the network on the iPad, no local data is stored on the device, which increases the level of security.
Utilizing built-in VPN functionality of iOS, user sessions are protected, including those over public Wi-Fi connections, by using 256-bit AES encryption, ensuring secure access to corporate desktops and applications.
The App supports gesture based and multitouch operation with rich virtual keyboard support, including CTRL, ALT, ESC, Insert, Delete, Tab, Home, End, Function, Paging, and cursor keys.
“With the introduction of Oracle Virtual Desktop Client App for iPad, we continue to offer customers innovative ways to access a broad range of virtual desktop environments and enterprise applications,” said Wim Coekaerts, SVP, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle. “When used in conjunction with Oracle’s Sun Ray Software and Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, customers benefit from enhanced security, centralized administration, lower cost, and better access to their corporate data from iPad.”
The Oracle Virtual Desktop Client App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
