United States : ProfileUnity v6.0 Solves Significant ARM and Granular Management Issues

July 17, 2014

Liquidware Labs, the leader in desktop transformation software solutions, today announced the availability of ProfileUnity v6.0. This latest version of this industry leading user virtualization solution introduces several important user environment management features. These sophisticated features provide desktop administrators with significantly more granular ability to elevate application privilege rights to users without the need to give them administrator status, thus creating a much more controlled and secure desktop environment. In addition, administrators can respond to desktop environment events and to assign user resources in near real time, keeping their environments up to the minute. By offering highly sophisticated enterprise functionality at an extremely competitive price point, ProfileUnity v6.0 offers value that cannot be matched by other vendors today.

New features in ProfileUnity v6.0 include:

Application Rights Management (ARM)

New Application Rights Management (ARM) features in ProfileUnity enables ProfileUnity Administrators to securely grant specific Standard Users detailed application rights without making them a Windows Administrator. While some User Environment Management vendors have separate products at significant additional cost to cover ARM, the new features will be included in ProfileUnity at no extra cost. ProfileUnity s ARM capabilities include: Secure elevation of applications that require Admin rights for standard users, Allow application installations on persistent virtual or physical for Standard users, Allow/Deny Process Whitelist/Blacklist options for installed applications per user.

Our new Application Rights Management avoids the need to make users desktop or server Administrators. This helps keep users productive while strengthening security and needless help desk calls, said Jason Mattox, CTO, Liquidware Labs. Application Rights Management can make many applications compatible with server based computing such as Citrix XenApp and VMware s forthcoming RDSH offering in Horizon 6. RDSH servers cannot run applications that require admin rights for users without compromising security. The new ARM features in ProfileUnity v6.0 removes this barrier.

With the addition of ARM, ProfileUnity provides a consistent user experience across all desktop platforms, modes of delivery and devices that users today expect to use to access their workspaces under all conditions.

As Gartner recently commented, end-user computing environments are increasingly hybrid. Users are accessing their workspace or portion of it from a variety of devices in different contexts. This further increases the need for a consistent user experience across devices, applications and desktop delivery mechanisms.
