Security and Monitoring

Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) offers a wide range of features and tools to help organizations monitor and secure applications and data in multi-cloud environments.

Reinforce Security

Deliver server-based desktops and applications from a central location, easily backing up endpoints, deploying and maintaining security and meeting compliance regulations. Parallels RAS reinforces security with extra layers of protection, safeguarding assets with strict system hardening and a lockdown of data access.

  • Multifactor Authentication

    Parallels RAS enables multilevel authentication to add an extra layer of protection to your IT infrastructure. Users are required to authenticate through two successive steps to access the virtual workspace. The second level of authentication can be Azure MFA, Duo, FortiAuthenticator, TekRADIUS, RADIUS, Deepnet, Google Authenticator or a SafeNet server.

  • Kiosk Mode

    The Parallels RAS Device Manager allows administrators to convert Windows devices running Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 into secure Kiosk-like mode without replacing the operating system. The Kiosk Mode limits users from changing system settings or installing new applications, providing the administrator with a higher level of control over connected devices.

  • Encryption Protocols

    Parallels RAS Secure Client Gateway supports SSL or FIPS 140-2 protocol encryption, offering organizations adherence to data compliance policies such as PCI DSS, HIPAA and GDPR.

  • Advanced Filtering

    Granular filtering rules can be created to restrict users' access to the farm, adding another layer of data protection. IT staff can define several filtering rules to decide who can access a published resource based on user, IP address, MAC address and gateway.

    Security and Monitoring
  • Data Segregation

    Parallels RAS supports data segregation in a multi-tenancy environment by allowing the creation of an unlimited number of independent sites inside the same farm. No applications, desktops and data can be shared between sites, ensuring data protection. Multiple sites can be managed from the same instance of the Parallels RAS Console, streamlining the management of a multi-tenancy environment.

    Security and Monitoring
  • Clipboard Restriction

    Organizations can avoid any unwanted data leakage from published applications by disabling paste and copy on the clipboard, reducing the risk that sensitive data (such as credit card details or patient records) can be stolen.

  • Client Policy

    By adding client policies, you can group users and push different Parallels Client settings to user devices, forcing them to function as your organization requires. A client group policy controls which settings are available to configure on the Parallels Client interface.

    Security and Monitoring
  • SAML SSO Authentication

    Parallels RAS integrates single sign-on (SSO) authentication technology based on Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). When using SAML SSO authentication, corporate-authenticated users are not required to re-enter their credentials to log in to your services, providing a smoother user experience.

Monitoring

Monitoring server, desktop and application performance is critical to providing users with a seamless and productive UX. The Parallels RAS Reporting Engine transforms raw data into visual and intuitive reports, providing IT with an infrastructure overview. Unlike other solutions, this feature is available with a standard license.

Reporting Engine

The Parallels RAS Reporting Engine relies on Microsoft SQL Express or full edition (SSRS), enabling real-time reporting about the farm activities. By extracting raw data from the SQL database, Parallels RAS Reporting Engine creates detailed reports about the server usage, what devices are used, what applications are accessed and more. By scanning these reports, organizations can enhance the performance of Parallels RAS and Windows Server components.

Available Reports

The Parallels RAS Reporting Engine provides IT with insight about users, Active Directory (AD) groups, devices, servers and applications’ activities.

Security and Monitoring

Users Reports

Receive real-time information about the users connected to the Parallels RAS installation, the sessions activity, the devices connected, and the client OSes used. With this information, IT administrators can adjust the servers and devices availability to match the traffic requirements on the farm.

Security and Monitoring

Group Reports

Users' activity can be also monitored at AD group level, providing insight into the group dynamics. By checking the group activity, IT admins can adjust the settings of the Parallels RAS installation to meet the different groups' requirements.

Security and Monitoring

Device Reports

The devices report provides IT administrators with information on all the devices used on the Parallels RAS installation. IT administrators can plan for future expansion or development based on this report—for example, purchase the most commonly used device for future expansion.

Security and Monitoring

Server Reports

Servers activity running on RD Session Host and VDI are monitored in this group of reports. Organizations can discover and remove bottlenecks by evaluating server sessions activity and reallocating the hardware resources.

Security and Monitoring

Application Reports

Published applications usage on the Parallels RAS installation is monitored in this group of reports. IT administrators can track which applications are most commonly used, forecast the license consummation, or remove unused applications to save up hardware resources.
