VMware Horizon Suite's Features

  • Provide a single aggregated workspace for end users – Employees gain a secure workspace with private, direct access to their desktop, applications and data, on any device.
  • Eliminate incentives for rogue technologies – Replace outdated technologies with easy file sharing and robust mobile access to applications—dissolving user motivations to introduce non-secure outlier technologies.
  • Deliver agile and elastic infrastructure – Applications, data and desktops are untethered from hardware silos to provide a responsive and scalable environment.
  • Universally apply access and security policies – Preclude security breaches and compliance faults by setting up access and governance policies that manage entitlement and utilization of end-user computing services.
  • Support BYOD initiatives – Enable access by end-user identity rather than by specific device. Employees can use the PC, tablet or smartphone they prefer, and they can use the same mobile device for their work and personal life, with full privacy protection.
