Leostream Platform Releases New Features for Secure Remote Access

Leostream Corporation announced the general availability of the latest Leostream platform, including Connection Broker 9.0.40.1. This release includes several new features and upgrades.

With a continued focus on security, the Leostream platform has several updates to expand support for secure authentication and MFA. New features for SAML-based authentication enhance the user experience and provide IT with more flexibility and control. RADIUS MFA workflows now support push notifications for users.

This release also features an important upgrade in the support for the Teradici PCoIP protocol with the new ability to launch PCoIP soft client connections from the Leostream web client. This new feature enables users to launch PCoIP connections after authenticating with Leostream using a SAML-based identity provider, a key workflow for architecting zero-trust solutions including Leostream. This feature also expands Leostream's vendor-neutral capabilities by adding PCoIP connections as yet another option for display protocols users can launch from a single Leostream Web client login.

New additions to Leostream's support for clientless high-performance connections includes both the HTML5 NoMachine client as well as the Scyld Cloud Workstation HTML5 client. These in-browser connections are supported natively and through the Leostream Gateway released as part of the platform update, rounding out the built-in clientless options available for connecting remote users to hosted resources. 

Some of the other new features include:

  • Leostream Platform Component Updates:
    • Leostream Gateway 2.0.0.12 - Upgrades the Apache Guacamole HTML5 viewer to version 1.3.0

    • Virtual machines provisioned into vSphere can now be assigned to a specific VM Host Group
