Exertis has added the Parallels remote network management technology to its enterprise portfolio in the UK, with a focus on the Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) VDI solution.
Parallels RAS is an all-in-one remote working system that enables companies to gain secure access to virtual applications and desktops on any device, anywhere. It enhances data security by centrally monitoring and restricting access, and is designed to enable customers to quickly scale their IT infrastructure on-demand with auto-provisioning.
With 100% focus on the channel, Parallels gives organisations the tools to quickly adapt to continuous workplace changes and demands for new applications or desktop types, said Exertis. One licence covers access for on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments, with free demonstrations and a 30-day free trial available. RAS ensures customers’ assets are protected from data leakage and malicious activity with granular permission policies, secure sockets layer (SSL) and Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 encryption and multi-factor and smart card authentication.
“Through the deployment of our cross-platform solution users will be able to gain access to any Windows application from any device,” said Matthew Molloy (pictured), channel sales manager for the UK and Ireland at Parallels. “Working with a well-respected distributor like Exertis allows us to deliver this solution effectively to the UK market. Their experience and expertise in the UK make them an ideal Parallels partner, capable of channelling our expertise to meet the dynamically changing needs of the market.”
Adam Blackwell, general manager for software defined storage at Exertis Enterprise, added: “With the ongoing focus on remote working for many, a safe and secure remote working solution has never been more important.
“Parallels delivers IT agility whilst reducing complexity and costs - customers can easily scale up and down and only paying for what they use. We have complementary vendors in our enterprise portfolio to create a compelling offering.”
Earlier this year, Exertis announced a distribution partnership with Fitbit, being tasked to drive the Fitbit health gadget and services range into alternative business channels. Such channels include the corporate well-being, salary sacrifice and gift-with-purchase markets.
