retains your workforce productivity even on the go.

Native gestures

Enable employees on the move to use the native touch gestures they know—swipe, drag, tap to click, zoom—with any Windows application on their mobile devices.

Web access

Parallels HTML5 Client provides a rich workspace experience, including support for local peripherals and file drag-and-drop. Employees can continue working on active applications and desktops even when switching networks. The HTML5 Client can be customized to fit specific departments or user demands.


Parallels Client permits multiple applications to run on your device. Different files can be kept open, allowing you to switch between them on demand. Functionality such as copy and paste can be used, including native gestures like swiping left or right to switch between applications and files.

Print from any device

Parallels RAS enables printing from any device, utilizing local printers without any configuration needed. The universal printer driver receives the printing job, compresses it and sends it back to the local device. There is no need to install local printer drivers when using Parallels RAS Universal Printing.

Pervasive Security

Secure your corporate assets from data leakage and malicious activity with highly granular
permission policies, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and Federal Information Processing Standards
(FIPS) 140-2 encryption, and multifactor and smart card authentication.

Advanced access control

Enforce policies based on a specific user, Active Directory group or even by the end user’s device to secure corporate data. End users may find their control settings predefined and restricted by the administrator. These settings may include connection, printing and clipboard settings.

Multifactor authentication

To access the published resources list, IT administrators can force users to authenticate through two-factor or smart card authentication. Parallels RAS integrates third-party security solutions such as DualShield, SafeNet, RADIUS server, Azure MFA and Google Authenticator.

Granular client policies

Enforce policies based on a specific user, Active Directory group or even by the end user’s device to secure corporate data. End users may find their control settings predefined and restricted by the administrator. These settings may include connection, printing and clipboard settings.

Monitoring and reporting

The Parallels RAS monitoring and reporting service transforms raw data into visual reports that can show traffic and resource usage from Microsoft RDS and VDI. In addition, administrators can create custom reports, improving day-to-day management activities.

Technology Agility

continuous workplace changes and demands for new applications or desktop types.

Allow for the integration of third-party tools and technologies—as well as scheduling and workflow applications—into the Parallels RAS infrastructure.

Parallels RAS supports multi-cloud deployments, including Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services™ (AWS).
