  • VMware Blast policy

  • Global data collected by VMware 
    If you join the customer experience improvement program, VMware collects data aboutTrue SSO for the View environment.
  • Restrict remote desktop access outside the network 
    View administrators can allow access to specific entitled users and groups from an external network while restricting access to other entitled users and groups.
  • Smart Cards for multiple user accounts 
    In some environments, a user's smart card certificate can map to multiple Active Directory domain user accounts. A user might have multiple accounts with administrator privileges and needs to specify which account to use in the Username hint field during smart card login. To make the Username hint field appear on the Horizon Client login dialog box, the administrator must enable the smart card user name hints feature for the Connection Server instance in View Administrator. The smart card user can then enter a user name or UPN in the Username hint field during smart card login.
  • Remote desktop operating systems 
    The following remote desktop operating systems are supported:
    • Windows 10 64-bit and 32-bit Enterprise and Professional; Build 1511

  • Windows registry keys for Flash Redirection 
    View administrators can set requireIECompatibility=true to enable Flash Redirection for Web sites that support HTML5 by default. This parameter is not required for the YouTube Web site. In certain situations, setting appMode=0 can improve performance, and setting appMode=1 can result in a better user experience.
  • Granular control of clipboard data formats 
    You can configure group policy settings to filter out specific data formats when users copy and paste data during PCoIP and VMware Blast sessions. For example, you can enable the Filter images out of incoming clipboard data setting to prevent users from copying images to their remote desktops. This feature provides added flexibility when you need to restrict copy and paste operations for security reasons.
