A single experience: across physical and virtual

A truly unified desktop experience

Virtual Desktop Extender provides a unique ability to seamlessly enhance remote and virtual desktops with applications that run locally, while using the underlying processing power, graphic capabilities and peripherals of the local computer.

Local applications are merged into remote or virtual desktops seamlessly — side-by-side remote applications in a unified desktop experience.

As applications become more graphic-, memory-, or processor-intensive, “reverse seamless” capabilities become more essential. Ivanti Virtual Desktop Extender helps you overcome obstacles that you may encounter on the path to virtual deployments.

Remove the barrier of migrating to - or merging between – virtual desktops.

Delivers a single workspace for your workforce, optimising the local computing resource on an application-by-application basis, and remove the resistance to adopting VDI across the organisation due to a better user experience.

Seamless user experience

Execute applications either from the local device or in the data centre, with a seamless user experience. This allows you to host sensitive apps in the data centre and allow users the freedom to run local apps.

Mix-and-Match physical and virtual

Eliminate the need to switch between sessions s virtual and physical apps are merged into a single workspace.

Add heavy apps to your virtual environment

Provide your workforce with easy access to ‘heavy apps’ such as AutoCAD, Photoshop and more within their virtual environment.

Support BYOD

Employees bringing their own device can run their preferred apps locally, without any danger of compromising your centrally hosted corporate environment.

Reverse seamless technology

Integrates local applications into a remote desktop, be it Virtual or Hosted.


Ivanti Virtual Desktop Extender extends the digital workspace through Independent Computing Architecture (ICA), Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and PCoIP virtual channels.

Fully integrated with Workspace Control

Virtual Desktop Extender is fully integrated in Ivanti Workspace Control, which enables printer information, local device location and IP addresses to be shared between local and remote sessions.

Easy installation

Instals easily without complicated configuration.

Remove the barrier

Remove resistance to adopting VDI across the organisation by providing a better user experience.
