Provides server-hosted applications and desktops to nearly any client device
Oracle has unveiled Secure Global Desktop 4.6, which provides server-hosted applications and desktops to nearly any client device, allowing businesses to manage applications centrally in the datacentre.
Oracle said that through the new Secure Global Desktop enterprises can keep sensitive data in the datacentre behind the corporate firewall, which can be accessed only by authenticated users with appropriate privileges.
The new Secure Global Desktop provides an additional layer of security for accessing sensitive enterprise applications, by providing a secure Java-based Web client that does not retain cookies or utilise Web page cache files that could be exploited.
The Secure Global Desktop 4.6 enhances the security and centralised management of applications in the datacentre by providing: browser flexibility; enhanced availability; enhanced application launch control for users; and easier integration with third party infrastructure.
In addition, the Secure Global Desktop provides hot-plug local disk drives and USB drives; increased options for Windows sessions, including 32-bit color support; configurable directory services and password management; and high-quality connection protocol.
Oracle linux and virtualisation engineering senior vice president Wim Coekaerts said that the new capabilities delivered in Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 underscore their focus on making applications easier to deploy, manage and support in virtualised datacentre environments.
"Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 is the latest of many new desktop virtualisation products and capabilities recently announced including new releases of Oracle VM VirtualBox, Sun Ray Software and Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure," Coekaerts said.
