Sun Microsystems decides that perhaps it is time to buy into this whole remote access thing. You know giving access to folks to corporate applications via a browser. So it buys Tarantella, for about $25 million. Not to be left behind, Microsoft decides to make an investment in Laplink, thought its investment seems to be more desktop centric. [Citrix Systems had bought GoToMyPC.] In the meantime remote-access/VPN products from Juniper and Cisco, are flying off the shelves. Given that the number of mobile workers is increasing sharply, these simplified VPN/remote access products will be quite a hot market.
