Hi there, I'm Sebastien. In my role as Application Security Specialist, I focus on ways that we can integrate and strengthen security across all of our products. To achieve this critical objective, I work closely with our various software development teams and provide ongoing training, tools, and guidance. I believe that security must be a shared priority and commitment across the organization, and I am proud to work for a company that never loses sight of this fundamental principle.

Update to RDM 2023.2.34 (or Later) Per New Validation Certificate

Summary

Starting January 2024, Remote Desktop Manager’s software installers and updates for Windows OS will be signed with a new extended validation certificate issued by GlobalSign.

At Devolutions, security at all levels is not just a “feature.” It is fundamental to all of our solutions and services. In this area, we do not compromise or take shortcuts. We take security as seriously as the IT pros who trust and depend on us each day.

As part of this ongoing commitment to robust security, we are pleased to announce that starting in January 2024, Remote Desktop Manager’s software installers and updates for Windows OS will be signed with a new extended validation certificate issued by GlobalSign.

Your Action May be Required

To avoid any potential disruptions or issues beyond January 2024, we strongly recommend that (if necessary) you update your Remote Desktop Manager instance to version 2023.2.34 or later.

List of Accepted Certificates

Remote Desktop Manager includes a list of accepted certificates to ensure that updates are distributed by Devolutions. This method is known as certificate pinning.

When updating Remote Desktop Manager, if the legitimacy of your requested download package cannot be validated, then you will receive an “invalid certificate” message:

If you receive this message, then simply select the option “Download update using your default browser.” The package will be safe to install. More information is available here.
