What is available in this release and why should you upgrade to Parallels Awingu 5.5?
The key features delivered in Parallels Awingu 5.5 focus on security and maintenance.
New certificate settings for external HTTPS requests
Starting with Parallels Awingu 5.5, customers are now able to have granular control on the certificates used for external HTTPS requests used by the following features: audit logging, reverse proxied web applications, WebDAV with SSL, and SSO metadata.
External requests can now be granularly controlled by verifying identity and only allowing trusted services, or deliberately choosing to allow the connection to an unverified/untrusted service. In addition, administrators can now add certificates for identity verification.
Organizations that rely on internal certificates issued by internal certificate authorities or self-signed certificates can use such certificates for the HTTPS requests to external services. In addition, administrators can manage those requests either by allowing or disallowing external HTTP requests to internal services.
As with most minor releases, bug fixes are included in this release. If you previously reported issues to Parallels Awingu technical support that were deemed to be bugs, they have likely been remedied as part of this release. Find an overview of all changes in the Parallels Awingu 5.5 release notes.
