  • Let's Encrypt 证书管理
    Parallels RAS 19 通过将开箱即用的 SSL 证书创建和 Let’s Encrypt 集成来简化安全用户访问。Let’s Encrypt 是一个备受赞誉的全球证书颁发机构 (CA),可提供免费的 SSL 和 TLS 证书。Parallels RAS 19 可自动执行续订流程并简化证书管理,您可以直接从 Parallels RAS 控制台颁发、续订和吊销证书。
  • 基于 ARM64 的 Parallels Client for Windows
    Parallels Client for Windows 已重新构建和优化,可在采用 ARM64 处理器的计算机上本地运行,能够让采用这些轻量级系统的用户高效访问他们的 x86 和 64 位应用程序。
  • 基于表达式的筛选和策略
    基于表达式的筛选采用自然语言格式,能够为管理员降低复杂性,并为他们提供更大的灵活性。采用表达式可完成以下事项:设置规则和标准以更精细地管理用户访问、将 Parallels RAS 客户端连接策略应用于指定对象、设置登录时间以限制用户访问场资源,以及管理多重身份验证 (MFA) 要求等。
  • 电源管理
    在云端运行虚拟机 (VM) 的一项关键特性是企业只需为他们使用的计算资源付费。VDI VM 通常仅在工作时间使用。通过 Parallels RAS 电源管理,管理员能够设置时间表,在受支持的提供商平台(包括 Microsoft Azure、Azure Virtual Desktop 和 Amazon EC2)上打开或关闭现有 VM。
  • 基于电子邮件的帐户发现
    让用户通过 Parallels Client 连接到他们的虚拟应用程序和桌面变得空前简单。最终用户现在输入他们的电子邮件地址即可获取连接详细信息,而无需输入冗长的服务器地址或服务器场的 URL。所有本机 Parallels Client 现在都支持通过输入电子邮件地址来查找 Parallels RAS 场。
  • 登录时间控制
    通过设置登录时间规则来支持“断开连接权”举措,并加强安全性。Parallels RAS 19 支持为已发布资源设置登录时间。采用基于表达式的灵活规则设定访问时间。
  • 多重身份验证 (MFA) 提供程序
    管理员现在可以使用多个 MFA 提供程序。无需部署不同的 Parallels RAS 环境,可重复使用相同的资源和简化 IT 管理。
  • 特定 URL 重定向
    除了现有的 URL 和邮件重定向功能之外,Parallels RAS 19 现在还能够重定向特定 URL。从服务器重定向到客户端以优化最终用户设备资源的使用。例如,重定向到本地版本的统一通信工具(例如 Microsoft Teams 或 Zoom),以优化通话和会议的音频及视频传输。
