After users log in to a client device or to VMware Identity Manager, they can connect to a remote application or desktop without being prompted for Active Directory credentials.

For Windows clients, administrators can configure the setup so that users do not need to supply additional credentials to log in to a Horizon server after they log in to a Windows client with Active Directory (AD) credentials.

For mobile and Mac clients, administrators can configure the Horizon server to save credentials. With this feature, users do not need to remember AD credentials for SSO (single sign-on) after supplying them once to a mobile or Mac client.

For VMware Identity Manager, administrators can configure True SSO so that users who authenticate using some method other than AD credentials can then also log in to a remote desktop or application without being prompted for AD credentials.
