VMware User Environment Manager 9.1: Continuing to Enhance Profile & Policy Management

VMware User Environment Manager 9.1: Continuing to Enhance Profile & Policy Management

Released earlier this year, VMware User Environment Manager 9.0 introduced several new features to help customers simplify management of user profiles and policies in any virtual, physical or cloud environment. The release showcased tighter integration with VMware Horizon 7 using VMware Horizon Smart Policies. Application authorization, or what’s commonly referred to as app blocking, gave IT administrators a simple but powerful capability in blocking or allowing access to applications a user may try to access from their virtual or physical desktop.

With User Environment Manager 9.0, administrators could also now configure folder redirection for user data, such as My Documents or My Videos. These were just some of the features that made User Environment Manager 9.0 a release that our customers were highly anticipating—and it delivered! Today, we’re even more excited to announce User Environment Manager 9.1, which continues enhancing some of the key features in 9.0.

New Policies with User Environment Manager 9.1

The first iteration of Horizon Smart Policies in Horizon 7 leveraged the power of User Environment Manager to help administrators easily enforce user policies in a Horizon environment. Admins can use Horizon Smart Policies to allow or block simple functionality like copy/paste or client drive access on a virtual desktop or published application. Dynamic contextual policies also allow administrators to set triggers on policies, based on conditions. These capabilities were a great first step in integrating User Environment Manager with Horizon 7. Now, customers look for even more policies.
