Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Administration Guide

Using Secure Endpoint Manager (SEM)

The Browser Plug-in (NPAPI) is used to launch Java based clients such as EPC, Connect Tunnel, Native RDP, On Demand Tunnel (ODT) and so on. For security reasons, popular browsers block these Plug-ins. The Chrome browser, for example, has disabled all NPAPI Plug-ins, and the newest Microsoft Edge browser does not support ActiveX. As such, the ease-of-use ability of launching directly from the browser is no longer functional, and a new method for seamless launching is necessary.

There is another application to launch that opens a specific Scheme URL. There are some Schemes already defined in the Windows/OS X, such as mailto. The Secure Mobile Access Connect Agent uses the Scheme URL to replace the Browser Plug-ins. The Secure Mobile Access Connect Agent is like a bridge that receives the Scheme URL requests and launches the specific native application.

The current version of RD Web Access supports native RDP client and HTML5-based web clients. This is an enhancement for Connect Agent to support MS RDP broker, farms, and TS GW without a full tunnel.
