Oracle Secure Global Desktop

Oracle Secure Global Desktop (SGD) is a secure remote access solution for any cloud-hosted enterprise applications and desktops running on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris and mainframe servers, from a wide range of popular client devices, including Windows PCs, Macs, Linux PCs, and tablets such as the Apple iPad and Android-based devices. Oracle Secure Global Desktop gives users the ability to work securely from any device and anywhere, while providing administrators the tools they need to control access to applications and desktop environments resident in the data center.

Oracle Secure Global Desktop is great for users inside the corporate firewall, and via the SGD Gateway, for users outside the firewall too. No VPN is required.

And SGD is certified for use with Oracle’s web-based applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Siebel CRM, Oracle Primavera and many others- and is also certified for use with Oracle’s Exalogic Elastic Cloud system to provide secure access directly to Oracle Applications co-resident in Exalogic for an exceptionally responsive user experience.

What’s New

We are pleased to announce the availability of Oracle Secure Global Desktop 5.5, providing simpler installation and easier maintenance in the cloud and on premises.

This product update introduces significant changes to component packaging and install processes, designed to allow faster installation and easier product maintenance within the cloud, as well as customer-hosted, on premises deployments.

SGD 5.5 for Oracle Linux

SGD 5.5 builds upon the features delivered within earlier releases, but has been developed with performance and modularity in mind.

To facilitate this, we have introduced a clean-sheet redesign of the product packaging and installation process. Tightly integrated with the Oracle Linux yum repository ecosystem, the product is now delivered in feature-specific component packages, and allowing for substantially faster installations than previous releases. This model lays the foundation for the streamlined delivery of fixes and new features.
