GraphOn Gives the GO on Application Deployment Software

GraphOn Corp. (www.graphon.com) added several new features to its server-based connectivity software and launched GO-Global 1.6, GO-Joe 2.3 and GO-Between 1.1 today, including faster data compression, international keyboard capability, improved password security, shared TrueType font capability and support for Red Hat Linux 5.1.

GraphOn specializes in thin, server-based software aimed at deploying applications to users over LAN, WAN, dial-up connection or over the Internet without requiring users to have the specific operating system. That way, IT managers can focus on the applications and simplify network management in heterogeneous environments by providing applications from a centrally managed server.

GraphOn has made a unified GlobalHost, or Universal X Server, allowing a single version of GlobalHost to serve Unix and Linux applications to Windows PCs, Windows Terminal Server/multi-user NT and Java clients over high and low bandwidth connections.

The new releases also feature a proprietary algorithm that encrypts the client's password on the client and keeps it encrypted in transit on the server. Users can also encrypt their entire session using third-party security products. The new versions of GO-Global and GO-Between share True-Type fonts between server and client to reduce network traffic. Before, bitmaps of the font characters were sent from the server to the client. The new package installs a library of TrueType fonts on the X server and copies them onto the client system used only on demand for use as Windows fonts. The updates are scheduled to ship March 25. -- Brian Ploskina, Assistant Editor
