Today, GraphOn announces the General Availability release of GO-Global 6.1. This release delivers significant new security capabilities and features that greatly improve end-users’ experience. New features include:
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) provides an extra layer of security by optionally requiring end users to enter a 6-digit code from an authenticator app on a smart phone, in addition to their username and password. This renders brute force and dictionary password searches useless –which is especially critical as more end users access corporate work computers while working from home, driving an increase in brute force attacks. 2FA also reduces the burden of forcing a complex password policy.
Branding allows customers to replace GraphOn’s GO-Global branding on end user interface elements (e.g., Sign In Dialog, Program Window, etc.) with the customers’ own corporate images, logos, and names.
The GO-Global AppController is a redesigned, easy-install version of the GO-Global App for end user devices that combines the functionality of GO-Global’s native clients and browser add-ons into a single application that can be started from a computer’s desktop, a mobile device, or a web browser. AppController can be customized with the customer’s own corporate brand or localization.
The Strong Encryption Certificate Wizard allows administrators to easily generate and apply trusted SSL certificates for GO-Global Hosts, enabling strong encryption and SSL/TLS security without purchasing a certificate from a third-party Certificate Authority.
Cloud Licensing is a simple, high-availability alternative to GO-Global’s license files that does not require on-premises license servers or product codes, and eliminates the need to redeem, rehost, or upgrade license files.
File Open Redirection streamlines workflow by allowing end users to open specified file types in applications running on the client. Administrators can enable the feature for select file types (e.g. XLSX, PDF, DOCX, etc.) so that when a user attempts to access a file of a specified type from a host application that does not directly support it (e.g. opening an XLSX in Outlook), the file will instead be opened on the client with the relevant client application (e.g. Excel).
URL Redirection allows end users to click web links that open in the default browser on the client rather than the default browser on the host, so end users can efficiently access web content and videos running in GO-Global sessions.
Video Replay enables applications and browsers running in GO-Global sessions to replay video content on GO-Global clients.
Third-party load balance support improvements let administrators centrally manage hosts and sessions that are accessed via third-party load balancers. Using the new Farm Manager and Farm Host roles, administrators can configure settings on all hosts in a farm at once, and they can manage and shadow sessions running on any host in the farm.
