A while ago, at LxA, we commented on what is a connection broker. A software used in desktop virtualization (VDI). That software belonged to the Virtual Cable company, and it was none other than UDS Enterprise. Well, now comes new news about this project, since it has integrated Glyptodon Enterprise to offer greater security and ease in accessing remote desktops.
If you did not know Glyptodon Enterprise, it is the commercial version of Apache Guacamole, an open source remote access software. Thanks to it, remote desktops managed by UDS Enterprise can be accessed from a web browser, in a more secure and simple way.
The development team of the Spanish Virtual Cable and Glyptodon have been collaborating together to make possible this technological alliance that will bring a new and powerful open source remote access solution to this connection broker to manage and deploy desktops, virtual applications and give remote access to physical and virtual devices.
Thanks to that joint work of both companies, it has been possible to add an extension to UDS Enterprise with Glytodon Enterprise. This way, you only need a standard web browser and login credentials to access the remote desktop, without the need for a VPN or any other type of client software. That is to say, now it is much simpler, but the fact of not using the VPN does not reduce its security, since it is another of the points that Glytodon has reinforced.
This will bring great benefits for higher education organizations and public administrators that already rely on this platform for their infrastructures. On the other hand, UDS Enterprise can manage and deploy virtual desktops and applications both Windows and Linux. In addition, it can be seamlessly integrated with a wide variety of proprietary and open source technologies, facilitating customization to make it a solution tailored to your needs.
