deviceTRUST – Dynamic Device Context Awareness

Only recently I became aware of a new player offering an interesting product that gives you real-time access to the system properties of the endpoint from which a user is currently connected to a remote Windows session. The company’s name is deviceTRUST (www.devicetrust.de/en) and they refer to their solution as “dynamic device context awareness”. In a nutshell, their product constantly monitors a range of settings and properties on the device that is connected to a remote Windows session. The result of the device assessment gets redirected to the associated user session environment on the host, allowing to respond dynamically to changing client device settings or conditions. A change in a monitored device property creates an event in the hosted session that can be displayed or that can be used to trigger a pre-defined action. As of today, the supported remoting protocols are RDP/RemoteFX and ICA/HDX. I personally started using deviceTRUST for collecting client-specific telemetry and configuration data before or while running remote end-user experience benchmarking tests. But then I figured that there are more use cases in security, compliance and user experience, which inspired me to dig a little deeper into how deviceTRUST works under the covers.

The design goal of deviceTRUST is to dynamically control access to company resources like applications, printers or network shares in a way that goes far beyond the capabilities provided by Microsoft Group Policy scripts or Group Policy Preference actions. It’s all about forcing the users’ interactive sessions to follow company security policies and compliance rules, while taking into account that a growing number of these users is able to work from every device, every network, every location and at any time. This all means that access rules cannot be defined in a static manner anymore and the context of the connected endpoint devices play an important role when setting up a dynamic ruleset.
