Virtual Cable is pleased to announce the launch of UDS Enterprise 3.5 Release Candidate. It is now available to all users who want to try first-hand the new functionalities that the next stable version of our software for desktop virtualization (VDI), virtual apps and remote access will incorporate.
The development team has implemented a multitude of improvements at the back end, transparent for users and administrators, aimed at improving the performance, efficiency and security of the VDI solution. Also, this release incorporates many new features on the front end. Among them, the following stand out:
