OTTAWA, ON – October 17, 2023 – Alludo, a global technology company behind award-winning brands including Parallels®, Corel®, MindManager®, and WinZip®, today announced the general availability of its end-user computing solution, Parallels RAS (Remote Application Server) Version 19.3.. The latest enhancements deliver key new provisioning, automation, and security features designed to deliver a superior remote work experience for both end users and IT administrators across enterprises of all sizes. Simultaneously, they save time and promote cost efficiency throughout the enterprise.
"At Alludo, we're dedicated in our commitment to innovation. The latest updates in Parallels RAS are a big step forward in making deployments and image management easier," said Christian Aquilina, Senior Director of Product Management at Parallels (a sub-brand of Alludo). "Our goal is to give enterprises and larger mid-market customers the tools they need to automate deployments and management, making it simple for IT admins to boost efficiency and scalability as well as enhance the user experience for the end-users."
Parallels RAS 19.3 offers a significant enhancement in image management ability for IT administrators to create multiple versions of RAS templates, facilitating seamless deployment and updates with Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop and other providers, including on-prem scenarios such as when using VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V. It also extends FSLogix management capabilities with new configurations and introduces office container integration—therefore improving application/image lifecycle management and workspace productivity, while lowering operational costs for IT.
The latest enhancements also bring forth notable improvements to the security and compliance standards, including advanced TLS support and alignment with the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) for enhanced compliance. Parallels RAS 19.3 is now verified by Veracode, for its exceptional security measures integrated directly into the code.
Additionally, version 19.3 introduces a modernized user experience with a new Parallels Client user-interface, available immediately on the User Portal web client and Windows and macOS will soon follow suit offering a sleek and intuitive design aimed at enhancing user workflow and access to virtual apps and desktops.
