Ivanti User Workspace Management solutions powered by AppSense add unparalleled value to our platform partners’ existing solutions.
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.|
