Rome, Italy, Feb. 16, 2010 – This winter, blizzard-like conditions have
been blasting regions of the United States and Europe, debilitating
travel by car, train or plane, causing businesses and schools to close
and drastically reduce productivity. NoMachine NX enables both workers
and students to remotely access their desktops and applications from
anywhere to maintain their daily routine, regardless of weather
conditions or travel restrictions.
Logging the heaviest winter
since 1884, Washington D.C.'s record snowfalls are causing airports to
shut down, leaving travelers stranded. Faced with massive amounts of
snow and damaging high winds from storms this month, federal offices
and schools throughout the area were forced to close for days and many
residents were snowbound. This blizzard affected much of the nation and
caused the closing of schools and airports in New York City, Baltimore,
Philadelphia and many other cities.
Likewise, Europe is also
experiencing an unusually harsh winter. Snow paralyzed Great Britain,
Germany, Poland and France for days and Rome even saw snow for the
first time in 26 years. With new storms bringing a massive disruption
to transportation, children remain at home due to school closings and
commuters work remotely if possible.
Whether stuck in the
airport, out of town or at home due to severe weather conditions,
NoMachine NX will provide the remote access needed to programs,
documents, files, data and e-mail applications residing on the school
or office servers. Reducing the negative effects of winter weather on
businesses and schools alike, NX ensures continuous access to project
work and collaborative activities.
A business continuity
strategy must include a way to provide secure remote access to critical
data and applications during a crisis. NX provides unlimited access,
performing in real-time with any operating system and over any type of
connection. Once the NX Client is installed on the remote PC or device,
the user simply logs in to their session hosted remotely on the NX
NoMachine's web tools further facilitate access to
remotely-located users. NX Builder, for example, provides users
one-click access to hosted desktops and applications via the Web
without the need for user configuration. With NX Web Companion,
corporate applications can be published on the Internet, ensuring
secure, on demand access.
When severe weather strikes or
emergencies arise, with NX, businesses and schools can maintain
productivity, allowing workers and students to be operative remotely.
Employees are provided with a virtual office and students with a
virtual classroom without requiring them to travel anywhere. Serving as
a business and education continuity plan for unexpected disruptions, NX
remote access and hosted desktop technology has become a necessity
rather than a simple convenience.
