Companies can now establish secure communication between their local network and SOTI MobiControl cloud instances without opening an inbound port. The latest version of SOTI Cloud Link agent, v3.0, facilitates communication to your enterprise services through an outbound port and initiates all application requests from the SOTI Cloud Link agent.
Note: If you're planning an upgrade to SOTI MobiControl v15.2, you'll need to upgrade the SOTI Cloud Link agent component on your local server to v3.0 and ask SOTI technical support to prepare your SOTI MobiControl cloud instance for the transition. SOTI Identity and earlier versions of SOTI MobiControl must continue to use their applicable versions of the SOTI Cloud Link agent.
The SOTI Cloud Link Agent allows organizations to securely extend their enterprise services such as active directory and certificate authorities to SOTI ONE applications. Previously, a version of the SOTI Cloud Link Agent was offered as part of SOTI MobiControl. As of SOTI Cloud Link Agent v2.0.0, SOTI Cloud Link Agent is a standalone application that is available for use with other SOTI ONE cloud applications.
SOTI Cloud Link Agent v2.0.0 introduces support for Identity Providers (IdP), specifically, SOTI’s own IDP, SOTI Identity. You can configure SOTI Cloud Link Agent with Windows PowerShell.
