About OVD Enterprise 2.8.2

Inuvika OVD Enterprise 2.8.2 is a maintenance release that includes a number of fixes for OVD 2.8.0. For more details, please refer to the changelog at the bottom of the page.

About OVD 2.8.0

Inuvika OVD Enterprise 2.8.0 adds a new user alert feature and better integration with Microsoft Active Directory.  It also adds new support for Microsoft Windows Server 2019 and security improvements for the Enterprise Secure Gateway (ESG) component.


OVD Messaging

2.8.0 includes the ability to send actionable alerts to users from the central Admin console.

Administrators can notify users of important events like planned system downtime, updates to terms of service, or any other issues that users need to know.  OVD Messaging can also be used to survey users for feedback by including multiple response options in the alerts.

Better Integration with Active Directory

OVD Enterprise 2.8.0 improves compatibility with Microsoft Active Directory Domain Forests.  The improvements let OVD Enterprise authenticate users within their subdomains against a master Active Directory Forest, making deployment within multi-domain environments faster, easier, and more secure.

Microsoft Windows Server 2019

OVD 2.8.0 introduces support for Windows Server 2019.

End of support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2

OVD 2.8.x no longer supports Windows Server 2008 R2. The change coincides with Microsoft's January 2020 end of Extended Support for the product.

End of Support Scheduled for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

OVD 2.8.x is the last version to support Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
