Global Access to Windows Applications
Enterprise companies use GO-Global® to quickly deliver Windows® applications to employees working from anywhere, on any device, from a public, private, or hybrid cloud, without costly and lengthy rewrites. Employees can access Windows applications published by GO-Global using PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, and Apple® and Android™ mobile devices. GO-Global was developed using GraphOn’s proprietary, closed source RapidX Protocol (RXP), which delivers great performance even over low bandwidth connections, so employees can be productive no matter where they are located.
GO-Global enables IT to publish Windows applications without the high cost and technology overhead of desktop and application virtualization technologies. GO-Global enterprise customers save at least 40% on application delivery costs over Citrix®, VMware® Horizon®, or Microsoft® RDS. And, unlike Citrix, VMware, and RDS, GO-Global is easy to install, configure and manage, but also delivers enterprise-level features like integrated load balancing, third party load balancing support, and real-time host monitoring. Enterprise IT teams can also maximize server resources using GO-Global’s session management capability that enables admins to pre-define maximum server loads and consolidate users and applications automatically.
Because GO-Global can be installed and running on any cloud in as little as 15 minutes, it’s also an excellent choice for addressing business continuity challenges.
Employees using applications delivered by GO-Global rarely realize that they are using GO-Global because it so closely mimics a native desktop experience. Additionally, GO-Global enables organizations to rebrand the GO-Global interface with the corporate logo, name, and images to maintain corporate brand integrity.
Applications deployed using GO-Global are typically more secure than when they are installed directly on an endpoint device. GO-Global’s proprietary RXP protocol is closed source, offering additional defense against attackers versus open-source protocols like Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), where security weaknesses have been found and exploited. And, since GO-Global’s high encryption algorithms require application of a signed TLS Certificate on the host, GO-Global enables administrators to generate trusted TLS certificates for GO-Global Hosts through the Security tab of the Host Options dialog of the Admin Console, where the GO-Global Host has a publicly registered DNS address. This allows administrators to enable strong encryption and TLS security without purchasing a certificate from a third-party Certificate Authority.
Additionally, GO-Global enables two-factor authentication (2FA) for applications requiring an additional security layer. 2FA renders brute force and dictionary password searches useless, which is especially critical as more organizations enable remote working with vulnerable remote desktop clients. 2FA also reduces the burden of forcing a complex password policy, cutting down on lost or forgotten password help desk calls.
Finally, GO-Global is the only application publisher to provide support for OpenID® Connect to enable single sign-on (SSO) to Windows applications published by GO-Global, making Windows application access more secure and convenient for employees and further reducing helpdesk calls.
GO-Global’s low-cost, low-risk concurrent user pricing is available in monthly and annual licensing options. Companies can pay only for what they use with invoicing based on highest daily concurrent users each month. This makes it easy for companies to cover regular and temporary or contract workers to keep mission-critical Windows applications highly available at an economical cost.
