Cameyo Introduces Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) to Make Any Windows App Available From the Chrome OS Shelf | News


CARY, North Carolina, March 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Cameyo, the virtual application delivery (VAD) platform that enables ultra-secure remote and hybrid working from any device without Windows desktops or VPNs, today rolled out features from Progressive Web App (PWA) for all clients, allowing users to access any Windows application on any device as if it were locally installed. Cameyo also announced integration with the Google Admin Console, which allows IT to force install and pin apps to users’ Chromebook taskbars. Users can now simply click the app icon in their taskbar to launch an app in its own window, rather than launching the app in a browser tab.

Make virtual application delivery invisible to end users

“Virtual Application Delivery (VAD) has already gained popularity as an easier, more secure and less complicated way to deliver applications to users regardless of their location or the device they are using by creating the full desktop version of any available in the browser,” said Marc Bowker, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “Cameyo’s ability to deliver any application as a PWA goes one step further and makes VAD invisible to the end user.”

Cameyo pioneered Virtual Application Delivery (VAD), which gives organizations the ability to deliver any Windows application to any device from the browser. The end user has access to the full desktop version of their applications, and these applications simply run in a browser tab instead of having to be installed on each user’s device. Today’s introduction of Cameyo PWAs offers all the security and simplicity of delivering apps from the browser with Cameyo, but with the added benefit of making those apps native – as if they were installed on the desktop. device – for the end user.

Instead of opening a browser tab to access their apps, Cameyo PWA users can simply click the app icon from their Chrome OS shelf or Chromebook taskbar, and the app runs in its own window, just like a locally installed application would. And with Cameyo, every Windows app can be delivered as a Cameyo PWA session – even if that app doesn’t have a PWA version itself.

Enable IT to push apps to users in minutes

Cameyo’s integration with Google’s Admin console allows IT teams to publish apps to Cameyo, then push those apps to users’ Chrome OS devices – based on roles or group profiles – in minutes .

A superior user experience combined with simpler and more powerful IT control

Virtual application delivery has long been the most secure way to give employees access to all the applications and data they need to be productive, and VAD is already eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional Windows virtual desktops. VAD also provided SaaS access to any app – including legacy Windows apps – on any device, from the browser. Cameyo PWAs combine a seamless user experience with powerful IT management for a solution that makes everyone’s life easier.

“Our implementation of Cameyo PWA evolves the user experience from a SaaS-like experience to a native app experience – to the point that users wouldn’t know that their apps aren’t installed locally on their device. Better yet, This seamless user experience doesn’t come at the expense of making IT’s life more difficult. The natural user experience comes with incredibly powerful IT management tools designed to give even more power and control to the computer,” said Eyal DotanFounder and CTO at Cameyo.
