Introducing the Border0 Desktop App

At Border0, we understand that managing and accessing your servers and databases can be a hassle, especially when it comes to security and enforcement. That's why we're dedicated to providing low-friction access, with the added bonus of visibility and security. And to achieve this, it's important to have the right tools for the right users. That's why we're excited to introduce the Border0 Desktop App.

The Border0 Desktop App is the ideal solution for those who prefer a graphical App to access their servers and databases. The App is designed to be simple, yet powerful, making it easy for users to discover what they have access to and start accessing it with just a single click. 

Download and Connect

The Border0 Desktop App can be downloaded from the Download section on our website. We have versions for all major desktop platforms, including MacOS, Windows, and Linux.

Once installed, it’s as easy as logging into your organization and discovering what you have access to. The App has a convenient filter that allows users to search by Service Type, and a fuzzy search function for name or description, making it easy to quickly find what you’re looking for.

When you click on the “Connect” button, the Border0 desktop App will launch the appropriate client to connect to the service. For example, if you're connecting to an HTTP service, Border0 will automatically launch your browser. If you're connecting to an SSH service, Border0 will ask for your preferred username and launch the Border0 SSH client. For database services the App will ask you for your preferred database client and the database schema (database name) to connect to.

Don’t worry about clicking too much, as the next time you connect to a Service, you’ll have a “Quick Connect” option, allowing you to connect to the service using your previously selected preferred database client or SSH username.
