AppSense Unveils Environment Manager 7.0 with Advanced Profile Management
Enhances Stability and Security with Robust User Profile Capabilities for Resellers and Customers
Melville, NY—January 25, 2007 – AppSense, a specialist in optimal system management today announced the availability of Environment Manager 7.0, enabling IT to control and customize configurations that are secure, predictable and preserved in their best-known state. The new upgrade offers advanced user profile management, which makes it easy for IT to create and manage stable, compact profiles for even the most mobile users.
AppSense also announced a new program to help resellers and customers eliminate the complexity and costs of unwieldy profiles, and overcome profile-related application security challenges. The new program provides resellers with an economic and easy to implement value-added service, enabling them to use
AppSense Profile Management to quickly rebuild and reuse profile components. Customers can use these same capabilities to manage profiles on an ongoing basis.
“Efficient profile management is critical for employee productivity, particularly when users are hot-desking and moving from office to office, or to different terminal server sessions. Unfortunately, profiles can be incredibly tedious to manage,” said Charles Sharland, CEO, AppSense. “The advanced capabilities in Environment Manager 7.0 ensure that all user profile settings—including those that mandate which applications and features users are authorized to download—are easily maintained with minimal IT administration.”
“Managing profiles can be difficult, yet it is extremely important for an efficiently-run organization. AppSense’s product enhancements, combined with its new reseller program, will enable Citrix solution providers to add even greater value to their customers in this critical IT management area,” said David Jones, corporate vice president, business development, for Citrix.
Profile Management with AppSense
Profile Management typically controls what happens when a user logs on. For example, drives and printers may need to be mapped; Desktop and Start Menu items need to be deleted and created; files and folders need to be copied and moved. As profile sizes and the opportunities for file corruption increase, so does the cost of rebuilding corrupted profiles and the time required for burgeoning profiles to be copied at logon.
AppSense Environment Manager 7.0 dramatically improves and simplifies user profile management:
· Only specific settings are copied at logon/logoff times, keeping file sizes to a minimum and maintaining faster logon times.
· Only the required settings for the particular server silo are copied over ensuring no configuration issues.
· The solution requires minimal attention once configured, ensuring fast logon times, aiding stability and reducing any loss of service for the user.
· Eliminates the costs of unstable and unwieldy profiles.
· Resolves roaming profile issues that are traditionally encountered when users are logged on to multiple Citrix terminal services servers.
· Reduces TCO through centralized management of user profiles (lower support calls, lower remediation costs).
