*This post originally appeared on the AppSense blog prior to the rebrand in January 2017, when AppSense, LANDESK, Shavlik, Wavelink, and HEAT Software merged under the new name Ivanti.

Earlier today, we announced a major update to our flagship DesktopNow suite. The new release, which is available for download on our MyAppSense.com customer extranet, includes over 250 user-requested enhancements to help our customers deliver faster, easier, and lower cost enterprise desktops.

This short video provides an overview of what's new:

Our products are more powerful than ever, but we're really proud of the fact that they are also now significantly faster and easier to install and administer.

We've raised the bar for dynamic personalization and configuration of both physical PCs and virtual desktops. We've also made it easier to deploy AppSense products in a DaaS model with the addition of multi-instance support and an all-new service provider program.

Privilege management always requires a delicate balance between user needs and IT priorities, and we've made our capabilities in this area much more flexible. Users can now submit on-demand rights requests, and we also now collect crowd-sourced insights that will help IT teams make proactive policy decisions.

We added these, and hundreds of other improvements, while also significantly reducing the hardware and storage footprint of our software.

In the coming day, we'll provide a deeper dive into the new features we are most excited about.

Stay tuned!
