Stratodesk announced new secure endpoint software solutions certified for VMware Horizon 8 version 2206. The Stratodesk solutions certified “VMware Ready” for the twelfth consecutive year give IT teams great flexibility and confidence in deploying cloud-ready workspaces based on VMware and Stratodesk.

Stratodesk NoTouch OS offers VMware Horizon customers an effortless yet highly secure route to the cloud by delivering centrally managed VMware Horizon endpoints in minutes to end-users located anywhere in the world. Stratodesk allows IT teams to convert x86-64 and Raspberry Pi-based hardware quickly into modern VMware Horizon VDI and app endpoint client machines with the latest software and security capabilities for end-users, while giving IT complete control over the managed asset. Customers can manage tens of thousands of Stratodesk-enabled Horizon clients accessing Horizon virtual desktops and apps within VMware Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services environments, or on-premises, all from a single Stratodesk console.

“Organizations investing in cloud and digital transformation strategies need flexibility and efficiency now more than ever to scale their business and enable workforce productivity,” said Ricardo Antuna, vice president of strategy and business development at Stratodesk. “Stratodesk’s ‘VMware Ready’ solution gives our IT customers and their end-users the utmost confidence they can work from anywhere, turning practically any commodity computer into essential business tools that are highly managed and secure.”

“Empowering a hybrid workforce requires edge and endpoint solutions to put apps and data securely in the hands of end-users while enabling IT teams to seamlessly manage devices regardless of form factor. The VMware Ready logo signifies to customers that Stratodesk NoTouch OS can be deployed with confidence and can speed time to value,” said Sachin Sharma, director of product marketing, end user computing business group, VMware.

Stratodesk customers such as Firstmark Credit Union, Hartford Healthcare, iQor, Loblaws, and many others across industries are rapidly modernizing their end-user computing environment using VMware with Stratodesk.

“As a billion-dollar financial services company, we take productivity and security seriously,” said Aaron Bedingfield, CTO of Firstmark Credit Union. “Stratodesk and VMware Horizon with True SSO helped us simplify our entire computing infrastructure to save on hardware costs and management time, standardize workstations and implement security features that enable our distributed teams to work safely from anywhere.”
