Bomgar Adds Apple OS Functionality in Bomgar Appliance – TMC.net

Left seemingly rotting away over a decade ago, kept alive by a cash infusion from its arch-rival Microsoft (NewsAlert),  Apple’s products are now the eyes, and in the hands of seemingly every individual and business. If a consumer or employee doesn’t have an Apple product they keep watch over what that company produces next in case they want to take a bite (byte?) from it or what the vendors of their computers, smartphones or entertainment devices do in response. Nearly one in three companies in North America and Europe currently supports the Apple iPhone, according to Forrester Research (NewsAlert), and sales for the iPad have surpassed 3.2 million units.
