RapidIdentity Enterprise Single Sign-On (eSSO) streamlines access to virtualized resources in VMware Horizon View through direct integration with VMware’s CLI and API.
Users accessing VMware resources after logging on to Windows will experience seamless authenticated access to VMware through VMware Horizon View or the VMware Horizon View web client.
Users in kiosk and shared workstation environments, such as computers on wheels will experience a secure and streamlined workflow with the RapidIdentity MFA Shared Workstation. In environments where logging on to Windows with a personally assigned username and passwords is not possible or practical, many organizations use generic accounts that are always logged on. This process causes concern for security personnel because in the majority of cases, while secure, the systems are on the organization’s network and unauthorized access is hard if not impossible to monitor.
RapidIdentity MFA Shared Workstation addresses this concern by placing a secured shell around the generically logged on account. Users requesting access to the generic desktop must first logon to RapidIdentity eSSO using an approved authentication method, such as tapping a card or swiping a finger. Once authenticated RapidIdentity eSSO logs when and how the user access the desktop. When used in conjunction with RapidIdentity MFA InstantConnect, RapidIdentity eSSO will auto-launch and authenticate the user to VMware Horizon View. Among other features, upon presentation of the VMware resource, RapidIdentity eSSO can perform SSO functions, select from a desktop pool, secure access upon time-out, lock the session upon presentation of a device, disconnect the session for roaming functionality, or simply logoff.
RapidIdentity MFA Server can be deployed within VMware.
