Independent Research Firm Names VMware a Leader in Unified Endpoint Management

VMware, Inc., a leading innovator in enterprise software, today announced it has been positioned as a leader in The Forrester Wave: Unified Endpoint Management, Q4 2018, which evaluated 12 unified endpoint management (UEM) vendors. VMware's intelligence-driven digital workspace platform, VMware Workspace ONE, achieved the highest possible score in the market presence category, as well as the product vision, commitment to innovation, and partner ecosystem criteria.

According to the Forrester Wave report, "Over the past year, VMware has invested heavily in helping customers embrace modern management for Windows 10 with its Workspace ONE product. The solution's differentiated AirLift feature automates migration of SCCM collections, devices, and app packages to Workspace ONE. It excels in IAM, with features like single sign-on (SSO) to the Workspace ONE app and support for dozens of conditional access policies."

 

Liquidware announces FlexApp and ProfileUnity support for Amazon AppStream

Liquidware, the leader in adaptive workspace management, today announced support for Amazon AppStream via its FlexApp, application layering, and ProfileUnity, User Environment Management (UEM) products. With this announcement comes the expansion of the already deep functionality of these products that have contributed to making Liquidware the last independent platform-agnostic player in a market segment dominated by giants.

Liquidware FlexApp is now the first application layering solution to support Amazon AppStream, and in doing so greatly streamlines the management thereof, while driving costs down for users. FlexApp achieves these operational and cost savings by allowing administrators to leverage a single Windows Server base image to deliver multiple applications without the need to constantly update the base image or affect user productivity with application updates.  FlexApp layered applications are not installed to the base image of the AppStream Windows Server, but instead are layered onto the server where they look, react, and feel as if they were installed.
