During Citrix Synergy, Ivanti today announced that it now enables high performance access and instant availability of Office 365 in Citrix virtual desktop environments. With new Office 365 Cache Roaming technology, Ivanti Environment Manager, powered by AppSense, captures Office 365 content, including Outlook and OneDrive applications, in a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) container layer for high performance access that retains a familiar user experience.
“Office 365 is among the fastest growing components of the Windows ecosystem, with over 100 million business users, but its adoption has been sluggish in virtual desktop estates due to user experience challenges,” said Jon Rolls, Vice President of Product Management, Ivanti. “Now, with the new Cache Roaming functionality within Ivanti Environment Manager, we’re changing that. This solution enables VDI users to seamlessly use Office 365 applications when and how they want, without performance degradation, a big step to accelerate Office 365 adoption for Citrix environments.”
“Enabling positive user experience is a central precept to accelerating workforce productivity,” noted Steve Brasen, Research Director with IT Industry analyst firm, Enterprise Management Associates. “The enhanced functionality provided by Ivanti Environment Manager helps organizations get the most value out of their VDI and Office365 investments by ensuring application performance and user experiences are on-par with or exceed that of localized instances of Microsoft Office.”
Ivanti Environment Manager delivers on-demand personalization and fine-grained, contextual policy control for an exceptional endpoint user experience. Now for Citrix VDI environments, Environment Manager has been extended to enable the use of Office 365, including Outlook 365 and OneDrive, without impacting performance or requiring user retraining. Using Ivanti policy, a user’s complete Outlook 365 cache may be moved between user sessions and users can work in Outlook 365 online, or offline, from anywhere.
Ivanti Environment Manager and its new Cache Roaming features will be showcased during Citrix Synergy, May 23-25 in booth #301. During the event, Ivanti will also be featuring solutions to simplify Windows 10 migrations and to provide secure remote access to safely prevent ransomware on Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop estates. In addition, the Company will be demonstrating its patch management products for XenApp/XenDesktop servers and hypervisors which help ensure protection from known bugs and exploits.
