AppSense Announces Partnership with CSC and Inclusion of "User Environment Management" Solution with CSC Dynamic Desktops
AppSense Ltd., the leading provider of user environment management solutions for the enterprise, announced today that it has teamed with CSC to provide the AppSense Management Suite as the user environment management solution for the CSC Dynamic Desktop.

The CSC Dynamic Desktop is a virtual desktop solution that uses a combination of virtualization, thin client and secure access technologies to deliver a highly flexible personal desktop environment that is accessible from anywhere. With CSC Dynamic Desktop, applications and user data are stored on servers located behind firewalls. This enables employees to access their desktop remotely and securely, regardless of location, and it allows the IT department to rapidly deploy systems to new users or refresh desktops without having to touch them individually.

AppSense user environment management technology enables CSC Dynamic Desktop users to experience a fully personalized desktop while enabling the business to more effectively implement corporate policy. With AppSense, all user personality information, such as desktop look and feel and profile data, as well as the organizations management policy, are managed separately from the virtual desktop and applied on demand. This not only enables the users personality to be portable, but also simplifies delivery and maintenance of virtual desktops by removing the need to treat each virtual desktop as a unique entity, explains Tony Bolland, VP Alliances for AppSense. By abstracting the user personality from the virtual desktop and managing this separately, true pooling of desktop images becomes a reality, and with that, significant storage, management and cost savings are enabled.

We are extremely pleased to have teamed with AppSense to develop the personalization component of CSC Dynamic Desktop solution, said Stephen Jeffers, Solution Director for CSC Dynamic Desktop. Effective management of user and policy information enables a more dynamic and flexible response to changing business needs, tailored desktop environments for business partners and improved security through application of corporate policy at the user level. These capabilities are core to our Dynamic Desktop offering.

In addition to the personalization of dynamic desktops, AppSense technology has been designed to work across multiple application delivery mechanisms. By combining virtual, streamed, provisioned and published applications, organizations are able to use the right mechanism for the right users at the right time. With AppSense, the users working environment is not dependent on the delivery mechanism, providing the user with a consistent, predictable and personalized working experience.
