PRESS RELEASE — REDMOND, WA–(September 1st, 2015) – Browsium Inc. today announced that HP will resell Browsium’s browser management solution as a core component of its WebApp Accelerator Service for Internet Explorer 11, part of HP’s enterprise services for Windows 10.
HP WebApp Accelerator Service for Internet Explorer 11 is an implementation and migration service designed to ensure that an organization’s critical web applications, built for legacy versions of Internet Explorer, will continue to function effectively in the latest browsers and operating system. Because most line-of-business applications today run in a browser, web application incompatibilities can have a significant negative impact on business productivity and become a blocker to a successful operating system or browser upgrade. With the Windows 10 upgrade cycle beginning this year, and added pressure to migrate to IE11 on Windows 7 by January 2016, enterprise IT departments are in urgent need of complete browser management solutions.
“Each new operating system and browser release can result in complex and costly web application compatibility challenges for our enterprise customers,” said Simon Hughes, Vice President, Network and Mobility, HP Technology Services Consulting. “The combination of Browsium’s browser management software and the HP WebApp Accelerator Service for Internet Explorer 11 give customers a cost-effective, comprehensive solution designed specifically to address their web application compatibility needs.”
Browsium’s browser management solution addresses these challenges by enabling legacy web applications to work in IE11 on Windows 7 or Windows 10, without modifying server-side code or virtualizing operating systems. It also ensures Java updates can be deployed quickly to keep IT infrastructure secure while retaining the legacy versions of Java required for application compatibility. This approach is easy to deploy and manage, highly cost-effective, and provides an exceptional user experience. Browser management can also deliver a quick and cost-effective response to future changes in web technology.
HP is using Browsium software in its WebApp Accelerator Service for Internet Explorer 11 to provide web application inventory, application rationalization, and remediation of incompatible applications. Additional information about HP’s offering can be found in their July 30th press release. For details about Browsium’s browser management solutions, visit http://www.browsium.com/.
