Bolton NHS Foundation Trust Chooses AppSense as the Core of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

AppSense announced that Bolton NHS Foundation Trust has chosen AppSense as the user environment management solution for its new secure desktop infrastructure. Using AppSense DesktopNow, Bolton NHS Foundation has successfully rolled out Windows 7 across thousands of desktops and has significantly cut logon times from several minutes to 15 seconds. With an extraordinary scope of care and multi-faceted treatment options, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust needed a high-impact IT solution. The organization's 300 clinical-based applications yielded a highly complex infrastructure that created several unique implementation challenges. These challenges were heightened with the need for confidentiality of patient information as well as the coordination across multiple facilities. Accordingly, The Trust sought a virtual desktop solution capable of delivering these high-impact results. This search is precisely what led the company to select AppSense. With an imminent Windows 7 migration and VDI implementation, The Trust needed to execute its projects with minimal disruption to clinical staff. Ultimately, the project needed to allow IT staff to update and support a robust, mobile virtual desktop environment across more than 30 sites while protecting information security and patient safety. With AppSense DesktopNow, The Trust achieved its goals. Not only did it significantly decrease logon times, it successfully migrated to Windows 7 across thousands of desktops and reduced patch failure and exposures to security vulnerabilities.

AppSense Updates to Environment Manager and DataNow Products

AppSense announced updates to its Environment Manager and DataNow products, integrating the two products to fully automate user management, migration and recovery and additional new features to increase user productivity, manage risk and reduce costs. AppSense Environment Manager enables users to roam between traditional PCs and virtual environments with full personalization and policy-based desktop configuration, while DataNow adds centralized user data management, so users’ files also follow them as they move between workspaces. The latest Environment Manager 8.6 and DataNow 3.5 releases integrate the two products, creating the only UEM solution capable of fully automating management, migration and recovery of all aspects of the user workspace, including personalization, desktop policies, and now user data. DataNow client settings and configuration variables can now be controlled in a point-and-click manner directly from the Environment Management console, giving IT teams a fully automated approach for centralizing user data, reducing the cost and complexity of key desktop migrations and recoveries. In addition to new integration points with DataNow, Environment Manager 8.6 adds a broad range of enhancements, including: Enhanced network triggers that give IT teams more flexibility to dynamically apply desktop policies based on context. An improved user self-service experience, integrated directly into the Windows system tray. Several new data import, template creation, and troubleshooting tools for administrators. A new “app team” user role that allows for tightly controlled delegation of IT responsibilities to application packaging teams. Significant reductions to backend infrastructure requirements, doubling the capacity of Environment Manager’s personalization server and reducing database size by 70%. DataNow 3.5 strengthens AppSense's unique ability to provide policy-controlled accessto existing storage investments with a 100% native user experience. New file sync exclusions enable IT to implement granular policy control over how files are stored and accessed, simplifying key IT workflows and providing richer file sync status information to users. Both Environment Manager and DataNow work seamlessly across all desktop delivery platforms " physical PC, virtual desktops and cloud. The latest releases will be offered through AppSense channel partners, both on a stand-alone basis and as part of AppSense’s comprehensive DesktopNow Plus product suite.

AppSense Launches ‘Appsense Insight’ to Analyze End-User Computing Environment and Behavior from Millions of Desktops

AppSense announced the release of ‘AppSense Insight,’ a new analytics platform that provides enterprise IT departments with actionable intelligence about their end-user client computing environment to increase user productivity, security and compliance, while managing and reducing costs. The solution provides actionable intelligence by gathering more data than has previously been possible from endpoints, blending it with third-party feeds, and combining it with deep institutional knowledge of the workspace. In many cases, AppSense Insight replaces the need for data analysts to decipher cryptic raw data. AppSense Insight is available as an optional module with DesktopNow, AppSense’s user environment management (UEM) suite, and other complementary system management tools, to enable policy-based responses to endpoint activity.
