About HTML Access
HTML Access communicates with a server, which acts as a broker between the client device and remote desktops and published applications. You enter credentials into HTML Access, the server authenticates your credentials, and then the server finds the remote desktops and published applications that you are entitled to use.
HTML Access is a good alternative when Horizon Client software is not installed on the client system.
