Parallels has announced it has acquired 2X Software (www.2x.com), a player in the application virtualization, remote application delivery, and mobile device management solutions space.
2X Software’s products include the award winning 2X Remote Application Server (2X RAS), providing platform independent virtual desktop, application delivery and integrated Windows client management from a single software package to any modern operating system, as well as to mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. Its 2X Mobile Device Management (2X MDM) offers a complementary (or stand-alone) solution that enables customers to monitor and manage corporate and employee-owned mobile devices.
“Parallels mission is to provide the best technology and experience for businesses, employees and individuals to access and use any applications and files on any device, anywhere, anytime,” said Parallels President Jack Zubarev. “We see huge synergies with Parallels Access and Parallels Desktop products and are excited about the potential 2X solutions brings to us. We also welcome 2X’s experienced and talented team of engineers and employees who will join us to continue creating the best cross-platform software solutions.”
Key advantages of 2X RAS include its well-rounded feature set, and an easy and simple implementation and deployment experience. Businesses can install 2X RAS in 30 minutes and fully deploy it in a few hours, compared to this taking many weeks or months for competing solutions.
