Virtual Bridges, provider of desktop virtualization solutions and originator of VDI, disconnected and branch-office use, has announced the immediate availability of VERDE 4.2.
In less than three months since the release of VERDE 4, the new-version capabilities underscore the company’s commitment to meet market needs through rapid innovation, including extending the reach of VERDE to iPad and iPhone users to serve growing mobile workforce markets.
New VERDE 4.2 functionality includes:
Built on the open-source iDesktop client, iVERDE allows iPad and iPhone users to access VERDE Windows 7, Windows XP and Linux desktops. iVERDE is fully integrated with the VERDE distributed connection broker and user console, providing a user experience identical to any other VERDE client. iVERDE has been contributed to the open-source community under the GPL license, and is available through Apple’s AppsStore.
Active Directory integration for dynamic desktop sessions
Combines the benefits of VERDE’s unique dynamic gold master provisioning while fully leveraging the IT department’s investment in Active Directory user, group and machine policies and controls. Unlike legacy solutions that employ technologies like linked clones, now once a desktop becomes part of an Active Directory, it becomes a dynamic, yet unique and personalized desktop instance.
Enhanced security with support for two-factor authentication
Offers customers the ability to use industry-standard, two-factor authentication technologies, including RSA SecureID, Safeword and other RADIUS-based solutions to secure virtual desktop sessions.
Customizable VERDE LEAF (Live Environment Access Format):
Customers can personalize the VERDE Off-line VDI Type 1 client side hypervisor, LEAF, with specific branding and custom login scripts. This allows customers to personalize the login experience for end users using the VERDE client-side hypervisor. Virtual Bridges is the only vendor to provide an integrated VDI and Off-line VDI (client side hypervisor) experience that works from the same gold image. VERDE LEAF also features bi-directional data synchronization that users enjoy a consistent environment whether accessing from VDI or Off-Line VDI.
