Parallels Launches Remote Application Server 17


Parallels has launched Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) version 17, which simplifies end user computing for service providers (SPs) and enterprises.

Parallels RAS 17 enables faster launch of applications by using artificial intelligence (AI) and provides additional security features such as integration with Google Authenticator. The latest Parallels RAS also debuts a web-based helpdesk console to more easily manage Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS), virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and desktop as a service (DaaS) infrastructure.

New and key features in Parallels RAS 17 include:

 

  • Session Pre-Launch: Increase employee productivity and satisfaction by enabling Session Pre-Launch functionality to automatically save valuable time for the user and organization. No more waiting for applications to launch every workday. Parallels RAS 17 uses machine learning (ML) to map users’ computing habits, applications used and login time, enabling it to pre-launch everything so users can be immediately productive when they begin their workday.
  • Improved VDI Security: Parallels RAS now prevents unwanted access to VDI by dynamically managing users’ remote access rights as required, by enabling remote access permissions during login and revoking permissions during logoff.
  • Google Authenticator: Parallels RAS integrates with Google MFA Authenticator to provide an additional layer of security using a time-based one-time password. This enables organizations of any size to easily secure their access with ease and at no additional cost.
  • Web-based Helpdesk Console: Parallels RAS Helpdesk Web Console gives administrators and delegated admins access to manage RDSH sessions, VDI and applications.
