Symantec Workspace Streaming and Virtualization 7.5 SP1 is Now Available

Symantec has announced the release of the latest update for Symantec Workspace Streaming and Virtualization.  This release brings some very exciting new updates that not only simplifies application delivery and improves end user experience, but it also enables VDI and BYOD.

If you had the opportunity to attend Symantec Vision 2014 this week in Las Vegas, you would have had the opportunity to see the new features and functionality in action as it was displayed at the BYO User Experience booth where they deployed applications to a users corporate laptop and personal tablet sitting outside the corporate firewall and network.  Within minutes, the applications appeared to the end users devices giving them an AppStore like experience with traditional applications and they used Symantec Norton Zones as the delivery mechanism.

The latest update added the following:

  • OS Support which now includes Windows 8.1 support, they removed whitelisting to simplify future OS update support
  • Improved Virtual Composer experience and simplified home menu
  • Driver Load Order change which enables better interoperability with Symantec DLP, Symantec PGP and FSLogix.  With FSLogix integration this improves user experience in a shared image scenario like Citrix Share Desktops
  • Network Application Mode which allows the ability to deploy applications directly from any storage location no longer requiring the need for any infrastructure. 
  • Portal RW Layer, with this functionality you have the ability to make the application personalization follow the end user.  Using this with User Profile Management solutions provides a very powerful user experience where no matter what device they use it feels the same.
