Improved Security, Reduced Helpdesk Calls

New Features

Single Sign-On Support for OpenID® Connect (OIDC)

Enables organizations to use OIDC identity providers like Okta® and Microsoft® Active Directory Federated Services (ADFS) for single sign-on (SSO) into GO-Global® Windows® hosts. With GO-Global, users who sign in to an enterprise web application or portal using an identity provider such as Okta or ADFS to access GO-Global Hosts from their browsers can do so without having to re-enter their credentials, enforcing the organization’s authentication policies and reducing lost and forgotten password calls to the helpdesk.

Once a user has authenticated via OIDC, GO-Global gives administrators several options for automatically authenticating the user on Windows. For example, if the identity provider is integrated with the organization’s Active Directory, GO-Global can automatically sign the user in to their domain account. Alternatively, if Active Directory integration is not required or desired, GO-Global can automatically create a local Windows account for the user.

GO-Global’s Integrated Web Server

Greatly simplifies browser-based deployments by allowing browsers to connect directly to the Application Publishing Service (APS) on its standard port (491, by default) and download the GO-Global Web App and associated HTML files. This eliminates the need to use a separate web server (e.g., IIS) to enable browser-based access to GO-Global hosts. Administrators no longer need to configure TLS on both the APS and the web server or route traffic to different ports and servers based on the protocol.

The Administrator Messages

Feature allows administrators to send messages to connected users and alert them of system maintenance and other events.
