VMware® has introduced version 2.1 of the Horizon View™ clients for Android and iOS. Updates include smart card support on the Android client and improvements in mobile accessibility for both Android and iOS. Horizon View also now supports the brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 that was just released on Saturday!
Organizations that want their mobile users to securely access Horizon View desktops from Android devices can now use smart cards as the user authentication mechanism.
This new capability works on Android 4.x tablets and phones and require a smart card reader from Biometrics Associates. Supported smart cards types include popular ones like CAC, PIV and Gemalto.
