AppSense Limited Key Developments

AppSense Enhances DesktopNow Suite to Deliver Unparalleled Scale and Flexibility in Enterprise Workspace Management

AppSense announced updates to DesktopNow- its software suite for virtual and physical desktop management. The enhancements include support for heterogeneous enterprise architectures, an even better user experience, and improved scalability and performance. AppSense customers will benefit from leveraging existing and anticipated infrastructure investments, enhanced user productivity and acceptance, and streamlined workspace management upgrades. These updates follow a highly successful year for AppSense. The company delivered record bookings in the first half of its fiscal year, with a 50% increase in the number of customers spending over $1 million vs. prior year. In addition, over 500 enterprise customers purchased AppSense software for the first time in 2013. The DesktopNow suite includes enhanced support for Microsoft and VMware desktop deployments. As enterprise IT becomes more diverse, AppSense is expanding its offerings to ensure that its customers can continue to deliver seamless and personalized user experiences, regardless of the various vendors they use in their environments. DesktopNow now integrates with Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8.1, with full integration and support for System Center 2012. The built-in connection to System Center allows customers to save AppSense configurations directly to SCCM for deployment. The updates also include support for VMware ThinApp, AppSense's latest application virtualization partner. DesktopNow also extends integration with Citrix XenDesktop(R)- including the latest release XenDesktop 7.5. When used in conjunction with XenDesktop and XenApp(R), the AppSense DesktopNow suite delivers increased user density per server, seamless, personalized roaming between physical desktops, virtual desktops and virtual sessions (Terminal Server/RDSH), control of users admin rights, and granular control of application performance to deliver an optimized experience for all user types.

AppSense Accelerates Adoption of Application Virtualization with VMware ThinApp(R) 5.0 Integration

AppSense announced the integration of AppSense Environment Manager with VMware ThinApp(R) 5.0. The combination of the two technologies enables full personalization of applications delivered via ThinApp, allowing IT to deliver a more consistent, responsive, and personalized experience to users while streamlining profile management. Customers benefit from faster deployments of virtualized applications with high levels of user acceptance and lower desktop management costs. Part of the AppSense DesktopNow suite, Environment Manager virtualizes personalized application settings from ThinApp applications and enables these settings to be shared seamlessly between physically installed native applications and applications delivered virtually. The AppSense Environment Manager enhances user acceptance in the migration to virtualized applications by ensuring that existing preferences, customizations and settings -- including history, favorites, custom dictionary, fonts, window size and location -- remain unchanged. Other benefits include faster logon times and customized control of a user's personalization. In the event of profile inconsistencies or corruption, the rollback feature allows the customer to restore an individual's application settings quickly with minimal downtime and troubleshooting.

AppSense Unveils Next Generation Enterprise File Sync & Share with DataNow Enterprise

AppSense introduced DataNow Enterprise providing users secure anywhere access to corporate data. Unlike other corporate file, sync solutions, DataNow Enterprise allows IT to leverage its existing on premise or cloud storage investments -- eliminating the costs of purchasing new storage and migrating data -- while offering end users an unparalleled consumer-like experience. DataNow Enterprise also adds enterprise storage connectivity options and provides an extensive set of new security and policy features.
