Parallels RAS (formerly 2X) is application virtualization software that delivers centrally-hosted Windows applications to local devices without the necessity of installing them.

With Parallels RAS, Windows applications can be used on devices that typically could not run them, including Mac & Linux computers, iOS & Android mobile devices, Google Chromebook thin client and HTML5 web browser.

Why Deepnet DualShield

Deepnet Security and Paralles have been technology partners for many years. Deepnet DualShield multi-factor authentication (MFA) component is natively built into the core of Parallels remote application server (RAS) by Parallels developers, providing strong multi-factor authentication to all Parallels RAS products with a native user interface and rich user experience. Although some other 3rd-party MFA products can be used with Parallels RAS via RADIUS, they simply can’t provide the same level of native & rich user experience and versatile MFA methods that Deepnet DualShield has delivered to the Paralles RAS users. This is why Deepnet DualShield is the de facto and most popular choice for Parallels RAS customers who need multi-factor authentication.

How it Works

Once the OTP has been received and submitted by the user, the user will then be granted access. It’s that simple! No hardware to carry, no software to download.

  • Granular MFA Policies

    Multi-factor authentication (MFA) does not have to be enabled on all users in your system, depending on your environment, requirements and the stage of MFA deployment. Flexible MFA policies allow admins to enforce multi-factor authentication based on a specific user, Active Directory group, or even by the end user’s device. Furthermore, different groups of users can also use different types of multi-factor authentication methods.
  • Advanced Access Control

    Prevent unauthorized remote access to confidential network information through advanced access control. Organizations can restrict access to sensitive material based on user, Active Directory group, IP address and GEO location.
