Parallels Business Solutions – which include updates to Parallels Management Suite and Parallels Desktop for Mac Enterprise Edition, plus the just-released Parallels Access app for iPad – enables IT departments to simply maintain compliance and control while still embracing the technology employees need. IT professionals can protect their investments in Windows-based applications because now they can deliver them on Macs, leverage existing Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) infrastructure and skills to fully manage Macs and virtual machines, and unleash productivity by giving employees the freedom to use any Mac or PC app remotely as if it was made for an iPad.

"We are pleased to help increase productivity by giving employees the freedom to use any device — Mac, PC or iPad — while still having access to key full-featured applications, even when on-the-go."
