IT Weekly Roundup, Jan. 21

From the business wires this week: a solution to launch applications remotely but securely, a remote PC management suite, and more.

Tarantella’s Secure Global Desktop Enterprise Edition (EE) 4 solution features enhancements in enterprise integration, security and ease of use. The secure application access software’s Web services APIs can be integrated with portals and Web applications, as you can launch applications via URLs. EE4 also has improved infrastructure security, including support for the AES encryption algorithm, and provides client drive mapping for additional clients with support for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris and Macintosh platforms. http://www.tarantella.com

Two new services have been added to the on-demand PC management suite Everdream Control Center from Everdream Corporation. Administrators can now secure and access remote PCs on their network with RemoteAssist, while Network Scanning enables IT staff to scan the network for all devices connected to it. http://www.everdream.com

Establish better control over your network’s resources, computers and servers with the latest firmware upgrade for ALTUSEN CN6000 KVM on the Net, an IP-based KVM solution from ATEN Technology. The upgrade enables multiple-user access to the CN6000, with capacity for up to 16 simultaneous users. Another key feature is the ability to adjust the size of the Console Viewing screen on the user’s desktop, allowing system admins to monitor other IT operations and switch between local and remote viewing. ATEN is also releasing a new enterprise-class combo KVM switch that allows secure access to up to 128 servers through cascading. Network admins can access any computer from any station connected to the network through the KN9116 16-Port KVM on the Net’s built-in LAN port. The KVM solution is priced at $2,499 MSRP. http://altusen.com
