REDMOND, WA — January 31, 2012 — Browsium Inc. revolutionized the enterprise web application compatibility market again today with the release of its next generation solution for running legacy IE6-dependent web applications in modern, standards-compliant browsers. The new solution, called Browsium Ion, uses the browser engines built into IE8 and IE9 to enable legacy web applications to run on Windows 7, without using the IE6 engine.
“As we planned our roadmap for our next-generation product, tackling customer concerns around licensing was of paramount importance, along with increasing the software’s capabilities to provide better compatibility for more complex enterprise web applications,” said Matt Heller, Browsium’s Founder and CEO. “The result of these efforts is a set of innovations that led to a much better solution – one that dramatically improves compatibility while also removing all of the confusion around Microsoft licensing policies on the use of the IE6 engine on Windows 7.”
In addition to fixing IE6 and IE7 dependencies to unblock Windows 7 deployments in enterprise, Ion also provides numerous capabilities to allow enterprise IT to stop trading off security for compatibility. For example, Ion easily enables multiple versions of Java to run side-by-side in Internet Explorer tabs. Ion also provides granular control of Internet Explorer security settings, allowing administrators to customize settings per web application rather than for the browser as a whole. This means line of business web applications work as designed while Internet browsing is done in the safest way possible.
Browsium Ion Availability and Pricing
Browsium Ion is available now. Ion pricing varies by the number of PCs in an organization with the Base and Per-Seat Licenses sold on a perpetual license. Ion is available as a free upgrade for existing UniBrows customers. Contact [email protected] to learn more.
