Based in the heart of Silicon Valley, Apporto was started in 2014 with the mission of “Enabling users to access desktops and apps anytime, anywhere”.
We all loved the user experience offered by Dropbox – it made it easy and simple to access our files anywhere on any device – yet we were struck there was no similar service for desktops and desktop applications. To be blunt, the existing options weren’t awesome — VDI, XenApp, and other traditional solutions were expensive. They were complicated. And worse, they often provided a poor user experience.
We saw a need and knew we could fill it — our solution would run (awesomely!) in the browser, offer multiple OSes (Windows, Mac, Linux), be very simple to administer, and, most importantly, affordable! Apporto is the product of that vision.
