The team has been hard at work, and I'm proud to be able to announce the release of version 8.1.1 of CoIP Platform!

There are a slew of new features and updates to old ones and we'll cover the highlights here. As usual, we have continued to tune the product to speed up and improve the user experience; check the full release notes for the gory details.

  • New Access Type: GPMA

    CoIP Platform now supports a new user access type - Generic Port Mapped Access (GPMA). GPMA allows you to quickly provide map specific remote applications for one-click access from the CoIP Launcher User Portal.

    The original CoIP Access network mode is still supported, and enables access to any port on the remote machine (subject to policy filters). The new GPMA mode opens only specific ports that have been programmed by the admin. GPMA has two major benefits:

    • One-click access to applications

      Administrators can now specify the client software to launch when the user clicks on the application. This user experience was available previously for remote desktop and SSH, but can now be configured for other applications as well.
    • VPN Co-Existence

      The new GPMA mode can work while you're on another VPN - even non-split tunnel. This means that you can be connected to one VPN, but still use GPMA to simultaneously access other private applications and servers in other networks.
  • Data Access Segmentation Policies

    CoIP Platform now supports the ability to automatically mount folders on NFS/NFS4 file servers when users connect via remote desktop, and unmount them when the session ends. Admins can use this feature to automatically configure the working environment for customers or contractors, to ensure they get access only to project files that are contextually relevant, and only during the period of access.
  • Micro-Segmentation Gatekeeper

  • CoIP Launcher Internationalization

    CoIP Launcher now supports Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean internationalizations, to ease the adoption for users in other locales. More language support coming in future releases!

  • Support for Red Hat 9

    The zLink sensor now fully supports Red Hat 9. The addition of this latest release of RHEL gives us extremely wide coverage within the Red Hat ecosystem, going all the way back to RHEL 5. Combined with our support for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, Zentera CoIP Platform provides a full suite of options for customers to segment and provide secure access to applications and servers throughout the enterprise.
