AppSense, the global leader of user environment management (UEM) solutions for the secure endpoint, today announced that it has been recognised in a 451 Research Impact Report as providing user management that is “the missing link for virtual desktops.” The report showcases AppSense’s renewed focus on extending the security, performance and manageability of end-user computing environments and highlights its growing opportunity to provide end-user management tools that manage user independence from underlying infrastructure.
“…AppSense has returned to its roots: extending Citrix, Microsoft and VMware end-user computing environments so that they work better, and pitching in on Windows migration, desktop virtualization, compliance and security projects,” writes John Abbott, Founder and Distinguished Analyst, 451 Research. “As the spectrum of remote and virtual desktop delivery mechanisms broadens – from physical PC, old-style session-based computing to full-strength VDI, streaming, layering, containers and desktop as a service – it’s becoming more important to maintain some independence from the underlying infrastructure and the user-facing management and personalization layer. Desktops and endpoints need to be managed in a way that reduces complexity – at the same time, security must be maintained, and support for cloud delivery models must be built in.”
In the report, 451 Research provides analysis on AppSense’s growing international channel-based go-to-market strategy as well as its competitive landscape. It also offers an assessment of AppSense’s suite of UEM solutions, including its DesktopNow Suite, including Enterprise Manager, Application Manager and Performance Manager, as well as its DataNow solution for secure enterprise file sync and share operations. The report additionally discusses AppSense’s new analytics solution, AppSense Insight, for monitoring user devices and interactions across laptops, terminal services, VDI or static desktops.
“Enterprise organisations have an increasing need to secure their endpoints without compromising the user experience that fuels workplace productivity,” said Jed Ayres, Senior Vice President of Marketing, AppSense. “At AppSense we are laser focused on helping companies achieve this goal by securing against intentional or unintentional user actions, simplifying desktop control, and delivering unprecedented visibility into endpoints. This is exactly why, as the 451 Research report highlights, the number of endpoints AppSense manages has passed eight million and counting.”
