Virtualized desktop system provider AppSense upgraded its frontline
enterprise product May 2, simplifying its setup and administration and
improving its management controls and user self-service options.
AppSense's User Virtualization Platform
enables enterprises to consumerize their data management. Users can
bring in whatever device they have and, using AppSense's software, IT
departments can configure them to access corporate data from that device.
Another key feature is that users can work and save documents online or offline as needed. Not all virtual desktop deployments offer that kind of flexibility.

best-practice templates designed to reduce time and requisite knowledge
for deployment, David Roussain, AppSense vice president of product

enable greater user mobility with further reductions in IT operations
and infrastructure requirements, Roussain said.
