VMware unveils integrated Horizon 6 solution

New Delhi, June 6, 2014:  Global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, VMware, has  brought its new integrated desktop and applications solutions-- VMware Horizon 6 -- to India.
It offers centralized management of enterprise applications and desktops, including physical desktops and laptops, virtual desktops and applications and employee-owned PCs. It caters to  end users who  are using new types of devices for work, accessing Windows applications alongside non-Windows-based applications and are more mobile than ever.
In India, almost every employee (97 percent) works outside the office, and 9 in 10 employees believe that they are more productive if they are allowed to work outside the office. However, strict IT policies continue to be imposed to prevent the leakage of confidential information (73 percent) and avoid the misuse of company assets (66 percent) by employers today. These insights came from the VMware MeConomy 2014 survey that was conducted in 14 countries across Asia Pacific and Japan to understand the attitudes and preferences of employees in an increasingly mobile world. The study also found that more Indian organizations are supporting employees in ways to gain access to the resources for working outside the office (90 percent). 
In this new mobile cloud world, managing and delivering services to end users with traditional PC-centric tools has become increasingly difficult and can lead to security and compliance concerns. Horizon 6 provides IT with a new streamlined approach to deliver, protect, and manage Windows desktops and applications while containing costs and empowering end users to work anytime, anywhere, on any device.
