Chapter 20. The Ten-Step Commute > Other Remote Access Methods

Other Remote Access Methods

A whole host of other products are available for remote access that don't fit into the typical remote control or VPN classifications. Most of these products have specific purposes, but they might be right for you.

Application Delivery Servers and Corporate Portals

Many companies implement application delivery servers and corporate portals for their remote access solution. Application delivery servers let companies install applications once on a server, rather than on every desktop throughout the company. Application delivery servers are useful if your company wants to keep close tabs on software licensing costs. Many application servers give users the ability to access applications remotely from wherever they are over the Web from a browser, such as Citrix MetaFrame (www.citrix.com) or GraphOn Go-Global (www.graphon.com).
