How GO-Global is Different
Reduce Total Cost of Ownership
Unlike products that wrap features around Microsoft® Remote Desktop Services (RDS), GO-Global provides full replacements for Microsoft’s multi-session functionality and its Remote Desktop clients, display driver, protocol, internet gateway, and management tools, which can save at least 40% over other multi-user remote access solutions.
The chart below provides examples of the GO-Global technology and Microsoft functionality it replaces.
|MICROSOFT||RDS ADD-ON VENDORS||GO-GLOBAL|
|Multi-Session functionality in Windows kernel (aka WinStations).||Use Microsoft’s multi-session kernel.||GO-Global’s System Extensions Driver provides a session-private sandbox for drivers and processes.|
|Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Client for Web provides remote access to Windows desktops and applications.||Web clients mostly use Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).||GO-Global Web App provides zero-install, browser-based access to remote Windows applications using 100% GraphOn technology.|
|Remote Desktop (RD) clients for endpoint devices provide remote access to Windows desktops and applications. Some are open source or 3rd party.||Extend or wrap Microsoft or 3rd party clients for Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol.||GO-Global App for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android enables remote applications to run as if they were running locally on the client device, using 100% GraphOn technology.|
|Remote Desktop Protocol display driver converts Windows graphics commands to Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol.||Use Microsoft’s display driver and protocol.||GO-Global Virtual Display Driver converts Windows graphics commands to GraphOn’s RapidX Protocol (RXP).|
|RD Connection Broker provides load balancing of connections across Microsoft hosts.||Replace the RD Connection Broker with their own load balancing functionality.||GO-Global has built-in load balancing between hosts or can use a 3rd party network load balancer for connections.|
|RD Gateway provides secure internet connectivity for RD Clients by tunneling RDP through SSL/TLS.||Replace RD Gateway with their own security wrapper for the RDP protocol and RD Clients.||GO-Global uses OpenSSL to secure communication between clients and hosts.|
Additionally, for organizations that don’t require a comprehensive end user computing infrastructure like Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (aka XenApp/XenDesktop) or VMware Horizon®, GO-Global delivers significant savings of up to 70%.
Secure Access to Corporate Systems
The surge in employees using RDP to connect to work computers from home has been accompanied by a surge in brute force attacks on RDP to gain entry to corporate systems. Unlike RDS/RDP, GO-Global protects against brute force attacks with Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for end user logons.
Flexibility and Speed for IT and End Users
Unlike Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, VMware Horizon, and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, GO-Global can be installed and configured in 15 minutes on any Windows PC or server.
Unlike TeamViewer and LogMeIn, GO-Global lets multiple users run applications on a single Windows computer at the same time.
Unlike products that wrap features around RDS, GO-Global provides full replacements for Microsoft’s multi-session functionality and its Remote Desktop clients, display driver, protocol, internet gateway and management tools.
