G/On is a scalable, Zero Trust based solution that connects all your users to internal and on-premise resources — regardless of device or location. Decrease your attack surface, enhance security and reduce complexity. Stop managing devices and empower IT to focus on innovation, not threat mitigation. It’s simplicity without compromise.
Ideally, resources are remotely available - but only to those users you know and trust, whether that's internal employees, third party suppliers or external contractors. The only way forward is:
Ensure services, applications, networks, and devices are always hidden from the Internet
Continuous verification without the need for re-authentication
Resources become available on a never trust always verify approach
Next year, older versions of G/On will no longer be available or supported by Soliton Systems. On 31 March 2023, G/On 5.7 and lower will no longer be available, and from 30 June 2023, G/On 5.8 will end service.
Customers can still run these older versions, but after the end of service date, will not receive further support or security patches. As a result, users of older versions of G/On will need to upgrade to the latest version, to ensure continued support.
Like many companies, you’re likely already exploring how you can transition to Zero Trust security to decrease your attack surface, enhance security and reduce complexity.
We recently put together a new guide How G/On provides a giant leap into the Zero Trust era.
It covers the reasons companies are turning to Zero Trust, why the time for action is now and shares our Zero Trust success roadmap.

G/On provides full control over settings, users and usage. IT admins can control application access, prevent copy/paste/downloads and allow file downloads in a dedicated secure environment.
Remove the risk of man-in-the-middle attacks with mutual strong two-factor authentication – the client authenticates the server, and the server authenticates the client.
Users have application access based on permission rules or Active Directory group membership. No need to remember URLs or other information to access applications.
G/On Gateway Server
|Operating systems version||Windows Server 2022, Windows Server 2019 or Windows Server 2016*|
|Number of users||Up to 2.000 per gateway, depending on application load|
|Supported authentication server||Active Directory, LDAP and local accounts|
* Even though G/On Server will install and run on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012R2 these platforms are not anymore supported from G-On version 7.0 or above
G/On Database (optional)
|Platform||Microsoft SQL Server|
|Operating systems version||• Microsoft SQL Server 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2019,
• Microsoft SQL Server Express 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2019
|*G/On comes with a built-in SQL-lite database. It is possible to integrate G/On with an external SQL-database. This is mandatory for multiple G/On Gateway server installations|
|Platform||Windows, macOS and Linux|
|Operating systems version||
|* G/On client also works on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, however, these platforms are not supported anymore|
|Platform||Windows, macOS and Linux|
|External authentication factors||
External authentication with authenticator app*
* G/On can be integrated with any other external authentication system using the RADIUS-protocol and if necessary by changing the plug-in based authentication architecture
Add G/On OS to G/On for a full lock-down of the client, resulting in additional security while maintaining mobility and client independence.
G/On OS, based on Fedora Linux, is booted directly from the G/On USB Token into the computer's memory*. The operating system is hardened and only allows information to flow to and from the G/On Gateway Servers - all other traffic is blocked. Also, there are no drivers to access the computer's hard drive, so no data is ever left behind. G/On OS comes with full features for application clients for Citrix, RDP, VNC, Browsers and much more.
* G/On OS is lean and mean, making it fast, stable and safe. This choice results in hardware support limited to the most common types of laptops (chipsets, network cards and modems). G/On OS runs on most Intel-based hardware but not on Apple Silicon. It is recommended to test hardware compatibility before deploying G/On OS. Support for specific hardware can be added upon request. Contact G/On Support for more information about the possibilities.
Is the central web-based management console that controls one or more G/On Gateways and the behaviour of the clients.
Hides the internal network and its resources from the Internet.
Connects applications on the client to resources inside the corporate network - without a VPN. After mutual two-factor authentication, the gateway server sends a dynamic menu to the client. This menu contains the specific applications available to the user, based on the device, authentication level, location, time and more.
Runs from a computer instead of a G/On USB-token and uses the computer as a second authentication factor instead of a smartcard. Only available on Windows.
