Akiri Unveils Coterm Screen Sharing, Distributed Development Solution for Linux Users

Akiri Solutions announced the release of a new solution for screen sharing and distributed development most suitable for Linux users.

The new Akiri solution, Coterm, will allow people to share their Linux or Mac shell/terminal session or Windows CMD session. The service is similar and complementary to Citrix Go-To-My-PC and allows for the sharing of text-based terminal/shell session for remote, collaborative problem debugging.

Officials emphasized the fact that Coterm’s architecture minimizes delays in spite of having only limited Internet bandwidth or high latency.

Coterm is provided with optional YubiKey strong two-factor authentication from Yubico.

Yubico specializes in online identity protection. YubiKey from the company is a driverless USB hardware with open source software. Its two-factor authentication is used by global customers as it enables instant and secure access to computers, networks and cloud applications.

Customers who benefit from YubiKey encompass individual Internet users, e-governments and Fortune 500 companies.

Said Stina Ehrensvard, CEO and founder of Yubico: “Yubico is pleased to partner with Akiri Solutions, offering fast, affordable and secure solutions for distributed development and collaboration.”

Being free for non-commercial use, the solution can be downloaded with no requirement for installation. YubiKeys ordered at Yubico Web store, which lend support to YubiCloud validation service, will work seamlessly with Coterm.

“Two-factor authentication via the YubiKey is an exciting new feature and is supported for both shell/terminal collaboration and Akiri user access,” said Matthew R. Laue, CEO at Akiri Solutions. “This optional feature greatly improves security, but has the YubiKey’s push-of-a-button ease of use.”

In 2011 Akiri Solutions launched the DevBox, an integrated solution that streamlines and accelerates the software development process. The DevBox is a Web-based virtual appliance that provides all the tools necessary for implementing new software projects, all fully integrated with unified access control.

Source (News - Alert) code control is provided by shared Git repositories, which users create in just minutes.

Akiri strives to develop and deliver products and services which aids in the design, collaboration and administration of the software development process.
