Windows apps can run safely on your Chromebook, thanks to Cameyo

By on February 23, 2022 0

Cameyo is a Virtual Application Delivery (VAD) platform that allows users to access Windows applications from devices running Chrome OS and via the web. Today, the company announced that Cameyo has been named a Chrome Enterprise Recommended Solution, which means it has been optimized for Chrome OS and meets a set of performance standards.

While some organizations rely on complete virtual desktop solutions, others prefer to provide access to specific applications. Cameyo allows users to access legacy Windows applications and internal web applications on the best chromebooks and through a browser. In addition to providing a path to Windows applications on non-Windows hardware, Cameyo also provides security benefits. The platform supports HTTPS, single sign-on, and separation of applications from a device’s operating system.

“Cameyo is helping businesses with Chrome OS remove barriers to accessing Windows apps and enabling businesses to securely access all the mission-critical apps they need in a cloud desktop,” said Mark Bowker, Principal Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “With Cameyo certified as a Chrome Enterprise Recommended Partner, Chrome OS and Cameyo are a strong joint solution for organizations that want to deliver secure cloud desktops without the burden of managing Windows desktops.”

For those unfamiliar with Cameyo, the company offers a quick demo of the service:

The main advantage of Cameyo is that it allows users to access full desktop applications through a browser, including devices running Chrome OS or Chrome OS Flex. Along the same lines, Google recently rolled out a tool to convert older Windows PCs to run Chrome OS Flex.
