In previous blog posts, we talked about optimizations as they related to the Windows Operating System, including Active Setup, the Microsoft Store, Services and Scheduled Tasks, and more. Due to the number of items that can be optimized in each section, those blog posts were necessarily a little longer in length.
Introducing Frame Single Sign-On
Frame® customers now have early access to the new Frame SSO feature, which provides Windows® Active Directory (AD) SSO into virtual apps and desktops — all from your Frame Dashboard (Settings > Domain Settings > Frame SSO) on a per Frame Account basis.
This blog guides you through a deep-dive on this industry leading feature, how it works and how it compares to other solutions from other DaaS vendors, and why we believe Frame SSO is a game-changer.

Leveraging Frame Admin API to Stick to your Public Cloud Budget
The Frame Education team uses public cloud infrastructure to conduct labs that demonstrate the power and capabilities of Frame. Sometimes during the course of these labs, students change the capacity settings of their Frame lab accounts to have machines running 24x7. Since these machines are in a public cloud, this can cause unnecessary and unexpected cloud expenses. To combat this, I developed a script to check all of the Frame accounts in the Frame Education customer entity and send alerts to a Slack channel if an account has a machine setup to run outside the hours of the Frame Lab. This allows the Frame instructors to identify and shutdown machines running outside of the lab's hours and shut them down. In this blog, I will go over how I used the Frame Admin API to accomplish this.

Best Practices for Using Frame in a Shared Desktop Environment
Frame is a secure cloud platform that lets customers deliver applications, desktops, and software-defined workspaces to users. We love to deliver features that provide world class security standards with focus on best practices and simplicity. Still, when we are leading a security conversation, like any other major industry vendor, we stress that security is a shared responsibility between our customers and Frame.
In this blog post, we are going to explain how we can achieve the optimal user experience and security posture in shared desktop environments. We are seeing that our customers, mostly from educational institutions, are asking this question often, since students are using shared devices (e.g., computer lab or classroom) for accessing a Frame session.
