In our last blog article we looked at some of the headline new features in Horizon 6.2. In this blog we continue to explore some of the key functionality added in this new release.
Access Point is a virtual appliance designed to allow secure remote access to virtual desktops and applications served by Horizon 6. Access Point is very similar to the View Security Server, but offers some additional benefits. Access Point is a hardened Linux appliance that can be deployed into the DMZ. Access Point does not need to be paired with a View Connection Server and can avoid the need to provision additional Connection Servers for authentication mechanism support.
Mark Benson’s blog on Access Point takes you through the details of the Access Point appliance and how it can be used as an alternative to the Horizon View Security Server. Additionally, you will find the Documentation on how to deploy the appliance here.
Alex Birch, EUC Architect, within the EUC Technical Marketing team has put together this video showing you how to install and configure Access Point.
