NComputing Announces General Availability of oneSpace(TM)

First Unified Workspace Solution Designed for Small and Mid-Sized Organizations Starts at Less Than a Dollar per Day per User

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- NComputing, a leader in client virtualization solutions, today announced the general availability of NComputing oneSpace. NComputing oneSpace is a unified workspace solution that enables IT to unify and securely deliver applications and files as a service to a variety of devices, including iPad and Android tablets.

The reality of IT today is a world of hybrid devices, applications and file services. This is exacerbated by the accelerated growth of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) initiatives. Therefore, IT departments need a simpler way to orchestrate and deliver essential business assets to their end users. Until now, IT departments within small and mid-sized organizations have not been equipped with the right tools to aggregate and provide secure access to all applications and files from mobile devices.

With NComputing oneSpace, IT can unify the delivery of Windows, Web and SaaS applications, and both on-premises and cloud file shares to tablets without having to re-write applications or make costly changes to their existing infrastructure. All of this is delivered to mobile users via a single oneSpace mobile app with a common user experience across tablet devices. This results in improved end user productivity while allowing IT departments to maintain control of their internal applications and data.

NComputing oneSpace represents another step forward in NComputing's mission to deliver the most innovative client virtualization solutions to the market today. As the only unified workspace solution designed specifically for the needs of small and mid-sized organizations, NComputing oneSpace delivers the ultimate unified workspace solution starting at less than a dollar per day per user to meet even the most demanding IT budgets.

Alternative solutions are not designed to meet the needs of small and mid-sized organizations and often require forklift infrastructure upgrades, data migration, application re-writing, deep IT budgets, and a large number of IT staff to implement and manage. NComputing oneSpace allows IT to eliminate these high costs through a unique formula of simplicity, performance and value.

100 Percent Cloud or On-Premises Deployment Options

Key Capabilities and Benefits of NComputing oneSpace:

  • Mobilize applications with a rich user experience: With oneSpace, IT can package and mobilize Windows, Web and SaaS applications and deliver them to mobile devices -- including iPad and Android tablets -- with a rich, mobile-friendly end user experience.

  • Provide secure, seamless access to existing on-premises and cloud file shares: IT can offer users unified access to all their files -- both cloud and existing Windows file shares -- while applying IT security policies and control.

  • Embrace BYOD while maintaining IT control: With oneSpace, IT can easily isolate business applications and files on personal (BYOD) devices via a secure, unified workspace, enabling complete control of business applications and file access while preserving the end users' native experience and personal data privacy.

  • Provide VPN-less access to internal portals, intranets, and secure web pages: Because the oneSpace app is a secure container, security for all applications, files and user sessions are maintained within the solution itself.
