Inventu's Flynet Viewer is optimal for a variety of mainstream browsers commonly used on mobile and desktop devices. To achieve greater flexibility, enterprises can move away from software that requires plugins, logins, downloads and other actions, instead relying on a terminal emulation option that runs within the browser.
While this carries numerous operational advantages, such as advanced web services functions and backwards compatibility with legacy software, there are several software issues affecting browsers today that enterprises should be aware of. The following three conditions can be accounted for when your company invests in an adaptable approach to terminal emulation.
- Flash and Java vulnerabilities: We've mentioned several kinds of Java weaknesses over the years on this blog, but Flash security has been the subject of much interest recently. As Wired points out, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome were both altered this month to either reduce the influence of Flash or bar it entirely.
- New browser products: The anticipated successor to Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, is an example of a new browser product that stems from a previously common or familiar one. Companies that plan on using it may have to research compatibility issues, since Microsoft recently announced that Edge is several times faster than Chrome.
- Performance strain: In addition to brand new browsers, there may be issues within the browser you currently use that force you to change over. TechRepublic writer Jack Wallen recently lamented the way Google Chrome has been "bogged down" on mobile devices recently, showing evidence of strain and heavy battery use. Emulators that work equally well with multiple browsers can be freely adjusted to match enterprise plans.
