Stoneware’s webRDP HTML5 Gateway Enables End-Users to Access Windows from Any Device

Stoneware, a provider of solutions for unified cloud computing, recently released its new webRDP HTML5 Gateway (News Alert), which is capable of letting end-users enjoy access to Windows from any device.

Rick German, CEO at Stoneware, commented, “This release of webRDP marks a significant step in the evolution toward a web-everything world. The ability to deliver access to Windows applications through an HTML5 Gateway opens up new possibilities for customers seeking to move to the web, but that still need to provide access to legacy applications.”

webRDP from Stoneware is designed to deliver secure, remote access to Terminal Servers and Windows programs from any Web browser. It supports standard RDP features such as compression, encryption, cut/paste, authentication, configurable display settings and branding and the product is available in two versions – the new HTML5 Gateway and as a Java plug-in.

According to Stoneware, the webRDP HTML5 Gateway is software designed to connect remote end-users with Windows desktops and Microsoft (News Alert) Terminal Servers using just a Web browser. The product is termed as a “gateway” for its capability to translate the HTML5 code within the Web browser to Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol.

While the Java plug-in was specifically designed to improve the performance, reliability and functionality of remote desktop connectivity on Windows and non-Windows platforms such as Linux and Mac OS X, Stoneware advises users to prefer the HTML5 Gateway version unless they have the requirement to embed the Java plugin into their applications.

Some of the notable features of the webRDP HTML5 Gateway include no client-side software required, no browser plug-in needed, the ability to access remote Windows desktops from any device, including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones, supports Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS and Android (NewsAlert), installs in minutes, supports Proxy and SOCKS for greater security and all passwords are encrypted to ensure security.
