Solution combines advanced contextual awareness and application masking for dynamic application access and comprehensive license compliance on virtual desktops
BRENSBACH, Germany, May 17th, 2017 – deviceTRUST, the leader for dynamic context awareness solutions in the End User Computing market, and FSLogix, the leading innovator in cloud-native digital workspace solutions for the enterprise, today announced a joint solution to further expand their alliance scope for business-critical contextual application access control and license compliance for virtual desktop environments.
The joint solution provided by deviceTRUST and FSLogix is the only market solution leveraging advanced contextual awareness, enabling organizations to make applications licensed per-device dynamically available through desktop virtualization technology while meeting license compliance requirements, reducing license costs, and maximizing ROI.
Many of today’s leading business applications made available through virtualization technologies are licensed per device, meaning any device that can access the application requires a separate device-based application license. For these applications, access must be tracked and controlled at the remote device level.
This joint solution will combine the FSLogix Application Masking module with deviceTRUST’s context aware endpoint monitoring and management functionality to enable IT departments across any industry vertical to control endpoint application access, while delivering a uniquely customized user experience. This level of flexibility is both lightweight and nimble with no requirements for additional infrastructure, making implementation extremely easy and extending the ROI of existing infrastructure investments.
Doug Brown, founder, DABCC states that, “FSLogix Apps is a super easy, powerful and truly useful solution for deploying and managing your application catalog. It’s a simply wonderful solution that I recommend everyone try for themselves.”
FSLogix uses a unique approach, called Image Masking. This allows applications to be installed into any Windows environment, physical or virtual, exactly as intended by the software vendor, using the standard MSI or installation tools. With a superset of applications installed on one gold image, all users get the same image and the FSLogix solution simply hides all the applications they are not allowed to use.
deviceTRUST makes the context of the endpoint and the user available inside the virtual session and on the endpoint, to ensure that all changes to the endpoint and user context results in an immediate update. deviceTRUST triggers FSLogix to make the application either accessible or inaccessible within the users’ session. This strong combination of FSLogix Image Masking and deviceTRUST is the first solution that enables true contextual application access control for virtual and physical environments.
“Our relationship with deviceTRUST provides our customers innovative and streamlined solutions that enable highly cost effective virtual desktop implementations,” said Brad Rowland, Chief Marketing Officer, FSLogix. “Our cloud native designs based on the latest technology are enabling enterprise IT to deliver on the promise of the cloud for virtualized workspaces, while dramatically simplifying management and improving end user experience.
“This partnership is about delivering a comprehensive solution for enterprises looking to optimize virtual desktops, providing business agility, cost management, and assured application license compliance for their corporate workforce,” said Jens Schmidt, Chief Sales Officer, deviceTRUST. “Administrators and solution architects should expect advanced solutions to provide optimal productivity for both their end users and IT staff. deviceTRUST and FSLogix are focused on delivering products that meet these needs for security, compliance, and performance.”
The joint solution is available June 1st, through deviceTRUST and FSLogix standard distribution and channel providers world-wide.
