New Release of Oracle Secure Global Desktop Now Available

Enhancing its portfolio of desktop virtualization solutions, Oracle has announced Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6, a solution that delivers server-hosted applications and desktops to client devices, enabling businesses to manage applications centrally in the data center, resulting in higher security, decreased operational costs, and increased mobility.

With a highly secure architecture, Oracle Secure Global Desktop helps keep sensitive data in the data center behind the corporate firewall, and can only be accessed by authenticated users with appropriate privileges. Oracle Secure Global Desktop enables an additional layer of security for accessing sensitive enterprise applications, beyond using a web browser alone, by providing a highly secure Java-based web client that does not retain cookies or utilize web page cache files that could be exploited.

The new release lowers administration overhead by delivering secure access to server-hosted applications and desktops from a wide variety of popular client devices. Applications and desktops that run on Windows, Oracle Solaris, Oracle Enterprise Linux, and other UNIX and Linux versions are supported, as well as mainframe and midrange applications.

Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 is part of Oracle Virtualization, a comprehensive desktop-to-data center virtualization portfolio, enabling customers to virtualize and manage their full hardware and software stack from applications to disk.

"The new capabilities delivered in Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 underscore our focus on making applications easier to deploy, manage and support in virtualized data center environments," states Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle. "Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 is the latest of many new desktop virtualization products and capabilities recently announced including new releases of Oracle VM VirtualBox, Sun Ray Software and Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. This demonstrates Oracle's continued commitment to providing a comprehensive desktop to datacenter portfolio."
