F5 VMware video SSO to legacy apps

Your end users leverage consumer apps every day that deliver just what they want, just when they need it. These consumer apps and app delivery platforms—the App Store, Google Play—have raised expectations for users: all important apps should be available anywhere.

For your IT organization, this presents an opportunity to delight end users with apps and digital workspaces that are exactly that—simple and accessible wherever users need them. For conceptual simplicity, the ideal digital workspace should centralize all the apps users need. It should also make it easy for users to add applications to their workspace without extra IT involvement. For accessibility anywhere, your workspace needs to give users access to mobile, cloud, desktop and on-premises applications they need.

Unfortunately, legacy applications can stand in the way of your digital workspace vision. These applications usually run on-premises. They are often protected by old authentication methods, and they usually cannot be exposed safely to the internet. End users find these limitations frustrating, especially when they have to use a VPN or cannot access the legacy apps on their mobile devices.

To solve this problem, VMware and F5 Networks partner to help your IT org provide convenient single sign-on (SSO) to your legacy Kerberos Constrained Delegation (KCD) applications. As described in this video by Peter Silva, senior solution developer for F5, you can set up SSO to your legacy KCD app for happier, more productive end users. At the same time, you can rest easy knowing that F5 BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM) is providing a secure gateway and app protection for your app.


See this blog post for more details on providing SSO to legacy apps with our digital workspace solution, VMware Workspace ONE, and BIG-IP AMP.
