FSLogix App Masking (Image Masking)
FSLogix App Masking uses the FSLogix Filter Driver software agent that enables virtual desktop administrators to massively reduce the number of Windows Gold images, easily manage per-user applications, optimize license costs while assuring compliance, and eliminate some of their biggest problems in VDI and RDSH.
Administrators have more applications and workspace variations to deal with than ever. And traditional application virtualization products often add undesirable overhead and still can’t address all use cases. FSLogix enables enterprises to easily go from way too many images, to a single Unified Base Image, without repackaging applications, ever.
Using image or "application masking", the FSLogix App Masking Module enables a single Windows image to serve any number of users by presenting only the apps, addins, fonts, printers, folders etc. that they're allowed to see by organization and/or admin defined policy.
This change in technology allows IT to instantly provide users access to apps, versus the old way of push and wait.
