A New Approach to Per User Application Management
Our premise is simple: existing methodologies for delivering and deploying Windows applications are based upon outmoded ideas and outdated technology. There remains a need for a product that makes it simple for each user to have their Windows applications individually tailored for their device. When a user logs on they should see only the applications that they are licensed to use regardless of whether they are using cloud, virtual or traditional desktops.
Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE

A simple truth: Current application delivery and deployment solutions for Windows®-based desktops are often not fast enough, and the methods employed introduce complexities and limitations that cost enterprises valuable time, money and productivity. There is a strong need for a solution that is faster to deploy, simpler to use, and improves productivity rather than degrades it. In fact, the best solution would seamlessly and instantaneously personalizing the entire desktop, from profiles and printers to applications and extensions, while supporting license compliance and cost optimization. And, of course, it wouldn’t matter if the target desktops were physical, virtual, or cloud-based. FSLogix is delivering that solution today.

UNIQUE, CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY

FSLogix has devised a revolutionary technique called Image Masking to create a single Unified Base Image that hides everything a logged in user shouldn’t see, providing predictable and real-time access to applications and profiles. This approach is driving unprecedented success in image reduction, with a side benefit of license cost optimization. Image masking functions identically across a wide range of Windows-based platforms, greatly simplifying the path from traditional to virtual environments, and dramatically reducing the management overhead required for enterprise desktops. This solution eliminates multiple layers of management infrastructure, creating a single, unified approach to image management, profile access, and application delivery.
Achieve Secure Cloud Printing for Microsoft Office 365 and Azure
The Microsoft Azure platform offers an open and scalable Cloud computing platform as a service, providing a highly available Virtual Machine (VM) Cloud service payable on a monthly fee. For subscribers, critical services and server functions can now be moved with relative ease but what about printing, how realistic is that? This paper explores the topic further and considers what happens when subscribers elect to migrate everything, including print servers, offsite into the Cloud and pitfalls to
The Microsoft Azure platform offers an open and scalable Cloud computing platform as a service, providing a highly available Virtual Machine (VM) Cloud service payable on a monthly fee. For subscribers, critical services and server functions can now be moved with relative ease but what about printing, how realistic is that? Users are struggling with print file sizes and resultant bandwidth issues, not to mention security and compliance concerns. This paper explores the topic further and considers what happens when subscribers elect to migrate everything, including print servers, offsite into the Cloud and pitfalls to avoid.

PCI DSS Compliance
IT security has always been a major concern for businesses that accept online credit card payments. They hold sensitive information that malicious hackers are after: cardholder data. This is why such businesses are legally obliged to build IT systems and networks that are PCI DSS compliant. This white paper explains how using Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) can help organizations build scalable PCI DSS–compliant networks and also save on costs and administration overheads.

IT security has always been a major concern for businesses that accept online credit card payments. They hold sensitive information that malicious hackers are after: cardholder data. This is why such businesses are legally obliged to build IT systems and networks that are PCI DSS compliant.

What Is PCI DSS?
PCI DSS is a security standard developed by the PCI Security Standards Council. Designed for businesses that do online transactions and hold customers’ payment records, it helps them build and maintain secure IT systems and networks, ensuring the privacy and security of their customers’ credit-card details and cardholder data.

The set of standards defined in the PCI DSS are the minimum required level of computer systems security that must be in place when processing credit-card data. These standards apply to merchants, processors, financial institutions, service providers, and any other entity that store, process, or transmit credit-card and cardholder information.

Why Businesses Need to Be PCI DSS Compliant
The challenges of building and maintaining a PCI DSS–compliant network are many and depend on several factors—for example, the type of software used, the network setup, and the procedures in place. If organizations that process credit-card payments and store cardholder details fail to build PCI DSS–compliant networks and computer systems, they risk being fined up to $500,000 per month—or even worse, having their trading licence revoked.

This white paper explains how using Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) can help organizations build scalable PCI DSS–compliant networks and also save on costs and administration overheads.
