delivers the solution as a secure, scalable appliance, according to a news
release from the companies. Soliton SecureDesktop enables students, faculty and

systems, through a secure remote access connection. To access resources
remotely, users must install Splashtop Center on their device.
According to Nobuo Kamata, president and CEO of Soliton,
bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives have created a need for organizations
to provide highly secure remote access to data and applications. Soliton
SecureDesktop is intended to fill that need.

milliseconds of latency and synchronized audio; and
- Secure, on-premise administration console.

SecureDesktop is based, can be found on Splashtop's site.
