This version of Bomgar has been certified for physical Bomgar Appliances (B200, B300 & B400), virtual Bomgar Appliances (VMWare & Hyper-V), and cloud deployment models.
This release requires Base software 4.4.2 or later.
New Features and Enhancements:
Bomgar Web Rep Console – Support remote systems through a web-based representative console. The web rep console removes the requirement of having to download and install the Bomgar representative console client, enabling quicker access.
Enhanced Presentation Attendee Client – A new HTML5 presentation attendee client gives attendees a smooth, intuitive interface for an even better presentation experience.
Enhanced Jump Client Maintenance – No more manually deleting uninstalled Jump Clients from your Jump Interface. An administrator can configure Jump Clients to be automatically removed from the representative console, making long lists of Jump Clients a little easier to use.
Connection Resilience – Network status intelligence in the representative console results in nimbler handling of intermittent network disruptions. If you should lose your connection, the representative console attempts to reconnect for 60 seconds. If your connection is restored within this time, your representative console reopens, restoring all of your open sessions.
Improved API Authentication – Granularly define the accounts used for API access to the specific roles they serve. Additionally, OAuth 2.0 authentication is now used for authenticating API accounts. Allow Customer Client downloads from traffic nodes.
