Western Financial Group Replaces Citrix with Ericom's Server Based Computing Solution

Leading Canadian Insurance, Financial and Banking Services Provider Reduces IT Infrastructure Costs - Deploys Ericom for Remote

CLOSTER, N.J. and WORCESTERSHIRE, U.K., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Financial Group, a leading Canadian Insurance, Financial and Banking Services provider, has decided to replace its current Citrix Presentation Server(TM) environment with PowerTerm(R) WebConnect by Ericom Software, a leading provider of server-based computing and virtualization solutions. As the alternative to Citrix, PowerTerm WebConnect provides centrally managed access to Windows Terminal Servers, virtual desktops and legacy host systems.

With over 80 branch offices, Western Financial Group evaluated and selected Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect based on its cost-effectiveness, ease- of-use and solid reputation. Beyond providing secure remote access to Western Financial's core Windows Terminal Server-based insurance application, Ericom's solution addresses the organization's wide range of technical and financial needs:

* Enterprise-wide Access: Anywhere, anytime access to business-critical applications enables information sharing among geographically distributed agencies and branch offices. * Enhanced Security: Built-in encryption ensures privacy of corporate and customer information. Additionally, centrally monitored access to applications reduces fraud and security threats. * Centralized Management: Centralized administration console reduces the cost and complexity of locally managing applications and desktops. * IT Optimization: Built-in productivity tools such as Load Balancing, remote user support and Session Reconnect prevent user downtime.

"Citrix provides a hundred different bells and whistles with their product, but we don't need all those features," said Doug Bennett, Western Financial Group's IT Manager, Networking & Technology. "PowerTerm WebConnect definitely hits all the features we need, and more, at a fraction of the cost of Citrix."

"Ericom provides a Server Based Computing solution at a price point that promotes enterprise-wide deployments," said Ilan Paretsky, Ericom's VP of Marketing. "The intuitiveness of Ericom's PowerTerm WebConnect facilitates a simple and quick implementation, with minimal user re-training for a seamless transition."
