GO-Global 6.1 Release
Windows Applications, Anywhere
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 (GraphOn recommends Google Authenticator and Authy) 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.
AppController is a next-generation replacement of the GO-Global App that can be started from a computer’s desktop, a mobile device, or a web browser.
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. Instead, administrators simply run GO-Global’s Activation Wizard on a host, sign in to their GraphOn account, and select the license they want the host to use. Administrators can add and remove hosts from a license at any time. When customers need to increase the number of concurrent users on a license, they simply purchase additional seats for that license. Newly purchased seats are automatically added to the hosts configured to use the license. Cloud licenses can be used on both on-premises and cloud-based GO-Global Hosts. Hosts using cloud licenses can continue to operate for up to 72 hours when they are unable to communicate with the GraphOn Cloud License Service.
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 balancer 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. In addition, these new roles enable end users connecting to GO-Global Hosts via third-party load balancers to start sessions on one device (e.g., a computer in an office), disconnect, and then reconnect to their sessions from a different device (e.g., a home computer). GO-Global automatically reconnects users to their sessions, even when the load balancer fails to connect a user to the host on which the user’s session is running.
