About DesktopNow

AppSense DesktopNow is the world leading user virtualization solution that empowers IT to centrally manage, setup & configure, lockdown and personalize any desktop regardless of device, platform, delivery mechanism, or location. A major revision of the AppSense Management Suite, DesktopNow features innovative approaches to reduce TCO, simplify user management, improve productivity and integrate with what you have today. 

User virtualization enables complete separation of the user from the underlying platform so that their portable persona can be integrated within new technologies such as desktop virtualization (inclusive of App-V); new operating systems such as Windows 7 can be seamlessly adopted at minimal time and cost and existing desktops can be optimized. DesktopNow represents the desktop solution of the user virtualization vision. 

AppSense’s pioneering desktop solutions are validated by leading vendors such as Microsoft, Citrix, Cisco and VMware, ensuring a secure, tailored user experience across all platforms and proven to improve user productivity and security while reducing operational and capital costs.

AppSense MobileNow is the only 100% SaaS delivered solution that solves the complete bring-your-own-device, apps and data (BYOX) problem for both IT and employees. It delivers real-time security, control and compliance for IT and a frictionless experience and freedom of choice – apps, data, and devices – for end users. Unlike status quo MDM-only solutions, MobileNow doesn’t require you to take complete control over and manage employees’ personal devices, apps and data. And unlike proprietary “container” and SDK-based solutions, MobileNow doesn’t limit users to only a small number of proprietary apps.
