Parallels RAS contributes to securing corporate assets from data leakage and malicious activity with highly granular permission policies, combined with SSL and FIPS 140-2 encryption as well as multi-factor and smart card authentication.
Advanced Access Control
Prevent unauthorized remote access to confidential network information through advanced access control. Organizations can restrict access to sensitive material based on user, Active Directory group, MAC address, IP address, and location. With more granular privilege settings, users are only authorized to access certain levels of data.
Add another layer of security with two-factor authentication. To access the published resources list, IT administrators can require users to authenticate through two-factor or smart card authentication. Parallels RAS integrates with third-party security solutions such as DualShield, SafeNet, RADIUS server and Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).
Granular Client Policies
Parallels RAS client policies allow you to secure corporate data by enforcing policies based on a specific user, an Active Directory group, or even by the end user’s device. Therefore, end users may find their control settings within the Parallels Client pre-defined by their administrator. These settings may include connection, printing, and clipboard settings, just to mention a few.
