CALGARY, Alberta (PRWEB) March 24, 2005 -– desktopsites Inc. (“desktopsites”), a rapidly emerging leader in access infrastructure software, or serverware, for the small and mid-size business (“SMB”) market, today announced the North American availability of the industry leading Konect Launcher as part of the latest version of Konect™ 5.0.

The Konect Launcher is a session-based, server-driven computing toolbar that delivers all of the robust capabilities of the Konect remote access desktop without the desktop footprint. Konect Launcher easily integrates into an end user’s computing desktop consuming minimal desktop real estate and providing a seamless end user experience whether accessing local or server-based computing resources.

“As more small and mid-size businesses deploy remote access solutions, it is increasingly imperative that this new server-based computing environment be as seamless, flexible, and simple to use as possible,” says Alex Bethlehem, CEO of desktopsites. “While the Konect 5.0 Desktop is an excellent remote access solution for more controlled computing environments in mid-size businesses, the Konect Launcher now provides the highest degree of flexibility and simplicity for small businesses when end users are accessing local and server-based resources. With its small footprint, integrated access to remote enterprise resources such as software applications, web-based applications, content, documents, data sources, and / or hosted services, and integrated authentication capabilities, Konect Launcher eliminates the line between local and server-based computing.”

Konect 5.0 is a Java-based access infrastructure solution empowering SMBs to provide desktop and remote access to all enterprise resources, including applications, documents, content, data stores, and services, running in a Windows 2000 or 2003 Server. With a simple and powerful wizard-driven configuration environment and leveraging Java Web Start technology, IT administrators for SMBs can deploy either configuration in less than 30 minutes to provide access to IT infrastructure and enterprise resources, personalized for each user’s needs, with secure connectivity over the Web.
