Symantec Releases Endpoint Virtualization for Workplace Management

Enables IT departments to deliver and provision applications and workspace components to any type of endpoint

Symantec has announced Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite, designed to improve end-user productivity and lower the cost of managing endpoint devices. By offering portable, on-demand user workspace management, Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite provides a comprehensive solution for creating and managing workspace elements and environments in traditional, virtual and mixed client computing models. Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite is scheduled for availability in Spring 2009.

Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite allows customers to provision anything from traditional endpoints to full virtual endpoint workspaces based on standards that are hypervisor-, operating system- and hardware platform-agnostic. The solution provides heterogeneous support across traditional endpoint and emerging end-user computing environments (such as server-based computing, virtual hosted desktops and client-side hypervisors). Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite integrates endpoint virtualization technologies from the recent acquisitions of AppStream and nSuite and includes feature enhancements to other products in the portfolio. Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite enables the separation of information from underlying IT infrastructure so that information can be managed, protected and controlled automatically.

Symantec is offering an endpoint virtualization solution that includes application virtualization, streaming, resource brokerage technologies and new workspace profile management. Symantec Endpoint Virtualization Suite offers customers multiple products including Symantec Workspace Streaming, Symantec Workspace Virtualization, Symantec Workspace Corporate and Symantec Workspace Remote. In addition, Symantec Workspace Profiles is scheduled to add dynamic profile management to the solution.

Symantec's cross-platform approach includes leading endpoint security, management and virtualization solutions that work together to offer customers the visibility and control they need to protect and manage all of their endpoints. Symantec's Open Collaborative Architecture facilitates interoperability through an open, standards-based set of guidelines and technologies that enables collaboration across Symantec's product portfolio and third-party solutions.
