 The chart below provides more detail.

 

  MICROSOFT VMWARE CITRIX IVANTI POWERED BY APPSENSE
Personalization

 

Standard Microsoft Roaming Profiles present performance and data corruption challenges and offer no cross-platform support: Microsoft User Environment Virtualization is an improvement but lacks Ivanti’s automated control, performance, , and scalability. VMware UEM offers a core set of personalization capabilities, but lacks Ivanti personalization’s granularity and deployment flexibility. It relies on Microsoft GPOs, which results in much slower logon times than Ivanti personalization Citrix Profile Management offers a core set of personalization capabilities, but lacks Ivanti personalization’s granularity and deployment flexibility. As it relies on standard file shares, enterprise scalability is affected Ivanti powered by AppSense sets the industry standard for on-demand desktop and application personalization, with unsurpassed granularity. Utilizing web server technology it’s 100% cloud ready and proven to scale.
Policy

 

Standard Microsoft Group Policy Objects are more complex to manage at scale and lack the granularity and context-awareness of Ivanti policies. As they apply in sequence, this can adversely affect logon times too. VMware offers desktop policy capabilities which are highly dependent on Microsoft Group Policy and thus cannot match Ivanti’s granularity, performance and scalability. Citrix Workspace Environment Management offers entry-level policy management providing limited flexibility Ivanti’s policy engine dynamically adapts desktop configuration based on IT-defined policies and user context. It’s unique multi-threaded engine provides the fastest possible logon times.
Security & Compliance

 

Windows’ out of the box privilege capabilities are very coarse; either users’ productivity suffers due to strict lockdown or endpoint security is at risk because users have more privileges than they need;  AppLocker provides basic application control but is simple to bypass and can affect performance. VMware does not offer privilege management or application control capabilities. Citrix Workspace Environment Management provides entry-level blacklisting that can be easily bypassed.

It offers no Windows privilege management capabilities.

Ivanti gives IT teams highly granular control over privileges and application execution.

 

Ivanti Trusted OwnershipTM along with optional digital hash whitelisting provides maximum security against Ransomware & Malware, and prevents users from bypassing existing security measures

Performance

 

Windows Server does not effectively manage CPU, memory, and disk workloads in Remote Desktop Session environments. VMware does not offer desktop performance optimization capabilities. Citrix Workspace Environment Management offers primitive CPU & memory control and lacks the context-aware capabilities of Ivanti. Ivanti’s patented performance optimization capabilities tightly manage CPU, memory, and disk access to increase user density by 40% or more and give users better overall workspace performance.
File Access & Migration

 

Microsoft OneDrive is not a native workspace solution. Users are forced to work from a single folder which alters their workflow and behaviors.

 

In addition, OneDrive is 100% cloud based and does not provide access to existing on-premises shares.

VMware AirWatch offers a secure file Content Locker data synchronization product but lacks User Workspace Management integration and the ability to integrate seamlessly with on-premises storage. Citrix ShareFile is not a native workspace solution. Users are forced to work from a single folder which alters their workflow and behaviors.

ShareFile can provide access to on-premises data, but requires dedicated storage for this.

 

Ivanti offers the only file access solution that Integrates with existing on-premises shares and workspaces transparently,, providing a totally native user experience and allowing users to roam seamlessly across physical and virtual environments.
Analytics

 

Microsoft’s analytics and reporting capabilities do not provide insight focused on end user computing optimization. VMware does not offer User Workspace Management reporting and analytics capabilities. Citrix Director provides a comprehensive view of Citrix workspaces but lacks simplicity in terms of quick access to crucial metrics.

 

It lacks detailed logon analysis breakdown and provides zero insight into endpoint security

AppSense captures detailed metrics from User Workspace Management-enabled endpoints and turns them into quick, actionable insights for IT teams.
