deviceTRUST 18.1 released

We are very proud and excited to release our new deviceTRUST version 18.1. This release includes many new features and capabilities that give our customers even more ways to increase and simplify their context-based security and user experience. 

More and more companies are planning to use cloud providers for the provision of a Desktop-as-a-Service. For this reason deviceTRUST now supports Amazon WorkSpaces with all product features and functions. This gives today’s customers the future security for tomorrow's technologies.

Our deviceTRUST Client for Windows has been significantly simplified and can now be installed for the user via a download link with just a few clicks. In addition, the client now includes an auto-update function that can be controlled centrally by corporate policy. This does not require any further user interaction. 

The transmission of device properties within the deviceTRUST protocol is now additionally encrypted end-to-end to further increase data security, providing an additional layer on top of the security provided by the underlying remoting protocols.

Contextual Group Policies within the virtual session can be set based on the context of the endpoint. For example, the screen saver settings within the virtual session can be defined based on the settings of the screen saver on the endpoint on Logon, Reconnect and during session runtime.

More detailed information can be found on our website.

This is a GENERAL release

Applies to:
All supported Windows OS versions (Windows 7 and later, Server and Client 32 and 64 bit)


Installation notes:
Will upgrade over any previous release.

Changes:
• Attempting to use FSLogix Single-User Search Roaming (Type 1) with Citrix Application Layering results in an error. This issue occurs because Citrix Application Layering does not allow renaming of certain files and folders. FSLogix changed their agent to not require renaming of any folders or files in order for Search Roaming to work.
• An issue with first time OneDrive installation has been resolved. The issue occurred when OneDrive was installed for the first time, and OneDrive syncing began. The FSLogix agent would not redirect the OneDrive files to the VHD/X container until the user logged off and then back on again. The FSLogix agent has been enhanced to detect that OneDrive is being installed, and now immediately begins redirecting the OneDrive files to the VHD/X.
• Improved handling of index corruption when using multi-user search roaming
• Fixed an issue where Office Activation would sometimes fail when using FSLogix Office 365 Containers

This is a LONG TERM SERVICE (LTS) release

FSLogix Policy for Long Term Service Release (LTSR) 3/9/2018


FSLogix provides a Long-Term Service Release (LTSR) for customers who desire:

· Guaranteed release cycles

· Field tested functionality

· Release timelines providing significant IT Staging time

FSLogix will release an LTSR no more than 12 months following the previous LTSR. All LTSRs will be supported for 18 months. This release cadence will allow organizations up to 6 months to stage and validate a release if desired.

LTSRs will be updated with defect and/or security fixes that are deemed critical. Customers in good standing, utilizing the LTSR, will be entitled to critical LTSR updates for the products that they are licensed for.

FSLogix LTSRs will be identified with a version ID ending in LTSR, e.g. 1.111.111.LTSR

LTSRs must be used in their entirety, all products and components associated with the LTSR must be installed and may not be mixed with newer or older products or components.

When Long Term Service Releases, or similar, are available for underlying or associated technologies, FSLogix assumes that those releases are being utilized in association with the FSLogix LTSR.

For any questions concerning FSLogix LTSR Policy, please contact your Account Representative.

Altaro VM Backup v7.6 Out Now!

What you can expect in Altaro VM Backup v7.6:

1. Continuous Data Protection (CDP) – Users can switch from running daily backups to a continuous data protection model yielding an improved Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of up to 5 minutes.

When CDP is enabled, VMs can be backed up as frequently as every 5 minutes. This ensures that, should a data loss scenario occur, only a few minutes of data are lost.

IMP: CDP is only available to customers with an active renewal (SMA) who have the "Unlimited Plus" edition of Altaro VM Backup. It is currently available for Hyper-V; and will soon be available for VMware.

2. Grandfather-Father-Son Archiving (GFS) for Local Backups - Users can choose to archive local backup versions in addition to their continuous and daily backups instead of deleting them. Now users can easily set up three separate backup cycles to store three new backup versions every week, every month and every year.

IMP: GFS is available for all customers on Unlimited and Unlimited Plus Editions of Altaro VM Backup. 

Altaro VM Backup Upgrading, Pricing, Licensing and SMA

For customers who have a valid SMA, upgrading to v7.6 is free and the same license key can be used. Customers must first uninstall their current version of Altaro VM Backup, then download and run the new 7.6 installer. All settings will be retained and no backups will be lost in the transition.

Altaro Cloud Management Console (CMC) users can deploy the upgrade as usual; this will be made available a few days after the release date.
