What is Kaspersky Open Space Security?
Kaspersky Open Space Security is a suite of products that offers security coverage for all types of network endpoints, from mobile devices to servers. Incoming and outgoing data traffic - including email, web traffic and network interactions - is scanned for malicious content and administration is simplified by using a set of powerful administration tools.
Kaspersky Business Space Security offers an umbrella of protection to workstations, smartphones, and file servers from all types of computer threats, prevents epidemics of malicious programs, and keeps information secure and fully accessible to users of network resources. The product was expressly designed to meet the increasing demands of servers operating under heavy loads.
Kaspersky Enterprise Space Security ensures the free flow of information within a company and secure communication with the outside world. The solution comprises components for the protection of workstations, smartphones and servers from all types of contemporary computer threats, removing malware from emails and keeping information secure and fully accessible to users of network resources.
Kaspersky Total Space Security exercises control over all incoming and outgoing data - including email, web traffic and all network interactions. The product includes components for the protection of workstations and smartphones, providing users with secure and fast access to company information resources and the Internet, as well as secure communications via email.
User Environment Management - The Third Layer of the Desktop
In order to reap the cost reduction and manageability benefits of virtual client computing, it is essential the user component of a desktop is managed independently of that desktop. The ability to abstract the user ‘personality’ from the desktop, manage and store this personality separately, and then apply it to a virtual environment “on-demand”, are the three tenets of user environment management.
Founded in 1999, AppSense is a technology provider specializing in user environment management (UEM) solutions for enterprise organizations. UEM is a complete solution for managing the user experience across combinations of application delivery mechanisms, user types and site locations. Based on extensive experience in server based computing, AppSense have expanded their solution to desktop virtualization.
UEM enables corporate policy and user personalization data, known as the ‘user personality’ to be abstracted from the desktop and managed independently. This personality can then be dynamically applied ‘on-demand’ to any user environment - providing a third layer on top of operating system and applications.
Whether desktops are delivered locally, published, streamed or virtualized - or combinations thereof - UEM ensures tailored policy is applied and personalization settings are persisted for all users. AppSense technology is used around the world to accelerate user migration to virtual environments, manage policy, provide personal and predictable user environments, and leverage investments in desktop delivery technologies. AppSense is a Global Citrix Solution Partner and founding member of the Citrix Ready Program, a Microsoft Gold Certified Solution Partner, and member of the VMware Technical Alliance Program.
UEM IN VIRTUAL DESKTOP ENVIRONMENTS
MIGRATING USERS TO VIRTUAL DESKTOPS
Accelerate and simplify the migration of users from physical to virtual desktops through abstraction and central storage of user settings. UEM ensures that the user receives a seamless experience as they are migrated, ensuring high user adoption and low support costs post migration.
PERSONALIZING STANDARDIZED DESKTOPS
Standardization of desktops reduces management costs, increases business agility and minimizes storage requirements. UEM applies personalization data to a standard desktop ‘on-access’, ensuring the user experiences a personal environment from a lower-maintenance standardized virtual image.
DYNAMIC DESKTOP ASSEMBLY
UEM participates in the desktop assembly process by dynamically applying computer level and user settings as the desktop is created. This ensures the user receives a consistent personal experience despite their desktop being ‘constructed’ using various delivery mechanisms and technologies. The user personality is persisted across desktop sessions, even if the sessions themselves are not persisted.
UEM IN SERVER-BASED COMPUTING (SBC) ENVIRONMENTS
ENTERPRISE PROFILE MANAGEMENT
Enables administrators to provide a consistent, yet contextual experience for end users by delivering the security and performance benefits offered by mandatory profiles along with the flexibility offered by roaming profiles.
The use of unauthorized software is a primary factor in destabilizing user environments. Unauthorized applications are prevented from executing without high maintenance lists or scripts.
Ensuring applications are responsive to user actions is key to user adoption. Server resources such as CPU, Memory and Disk are utilized and assigned to users and applications according to defined business rules, maximizing ‘users-per-box’ by 40% on average and ensuring high quality of service.
MANAGING MICROSOFT APPLICATION LICENSING IN SBC AND VIRTUAL DESKTOP ENVIRONMENTS
Microsoft desktop applications are licensed per device; meaning any device that can access the application requires a separate desktop application license. In virtual environments, therefore, a license is required for each client that can connect to the server where the application is installed. AppSense technology restricts access to applications by device name or IP address, providing application access control and in most cases, reducing the required number of Microsoft licenses required. AppSense is officially recognized by Microsoft in this regard.
THE APPSENSE MANAGEMENT SUITE
AppSense Management Suite is the first complete UEM solution for the enterprise. The Suite is comprised of four fully integrated products that provide policy and personalization management, including application and resource entitlement, across desktop delivery mechanisms such as Citrix XenAppTM, Microsoft Terminal ServicesTM, VMware VDM, Citrix XenDesktopTM, and streamed and local applications.
The value of virtualized desktop environments is proportional to the number of users in the virtualized environment. AppSense Management Suite has therefore been designed with the enterprise in mind. From mass-scalability to system redundancy capabilities to full lifecycle management of the user personality, AppSense technology has been proven enterprise-robust in many large scale implementations around the world.
CUSTOMERS AND ALLIANCES
As the world leading user environment management solution provider to the enterprise, AppSense have an unrivalled install base of over 3,500 enterprise class customers, with many environments supporting in excess of 50,000 users.
AppSense are a core solution to many of the world’s largest SBC and virtual desktop implementations, many of these documented in case studies and reference sites. AppSense have a portfolio of leading organizations across many industry sectors and geographies including companies such as HSBC, Barclays, ESPN, Volkswagen, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Citigroup, Wal-Mart, UBS, BT and Shell.
AppSense technology is also used in conjunction with many third party Systems Integrators, including CSC, HP, EDS, Dell and IBM.
