2X LoadBalancer for Terminal Services / Citrix Listing updated: September†27, 2007

Since Microsoft Terminal Services Servers support many users, it's important to ensure that each Terminal Server is fully redundant and that the load is distributed between servers ensuring optimal service quality for users. 2X LoadBalancer for Terminal Services / Citrix allows you to load balance RDP/ICA sessions between Terminal Servers and provide fault tolerance. In addition, if you are allowing users to login from the internet, you can hide the backend terminal services from the internet and just expose one single gateway machine - thereby increasing security of your Terminal Servers.

2X SecureRDP for Windows Terminal Services works with Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 Terminal Services and does not require a client component. Servers running either in Remote Administration or Application Server mode are supported.

AppSense Application Manager Listing updated: September†15, 2005

AppSense Application Manager provides control over many other types of application content, including ActiveX, Screen Savers, VBScripts, Batch files, Windows Installer packages and Registry configuration files. Self-extracting zip archives are safely extracted using the built-in Zip Extractor.

Another common area of concern for Administrators is licensing and controlling which applications users have access to. AppSense Application Manager can limit the users or groups of users who have permission to run applications and limits can be placed on the number of application instances running, the timing of when users run a program and for how long.

Block-IT Listing updated: October†17, 2005

Block-IT (Application Access Control) ensures that no user can ever gain access to unauthorized (local- or network-resident) program executables regardless of their security privileges or file system rights. Using its built-in hashing algorithm, Block-IT guards against application spoofing by verifying the authenticity of each authorized application at launch time. Multiple hashes per application are allowed in a multi-server farm in order to support the piece-meal update or upgrade of a given application or O/S.

Block-IT also features a scheduler to ensure that users can only execute authorized applications within a specified schedule (time-of-day and days-of-week.) Shortly before terminating a schedule-bound application, Block-IT notifies the user of the impending termination, thus giving them the opportunity to exit the application. Finally, it terminates the running application when the ending time is reached.

Citrix Access Gateway Listing updated: October†16, 2007

Citrix Access Gateway is an SSL VPN that securely delivers any application with policy-based SmartAccess control. Users have secure access to the applications and data they need to be productive. Organizations can extend access to datacenter resources from outside the office while maintaining unprecedented control through SmartAccess policies.

Citrix?s SmartAccess technology allows administrators to control both access and actions based on both the user and the endpoint device. For example, a user may have full access (read, save locally, print, etc.) to a set of files when utilizing their office PC ? but may be restricted to ?read-only? access when connecting through an unrecognized ?kiosk? device. Similarly, if an employee tries to log into the corporate network via a home PC that does not have an active anti-virus update service that employee may not be able to access certain mission-critical systems.
