PROVO, Utah, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novell® today announced the release of ZENworks® Application Virtualization 10 and ZENworks Mobile Management (ZMM) 2.7, adding to Novell's mobility portfolio and meeting the productivity and security needs of today's device-saturated businesses. Both releases further equip organizations with the resources and technology to manage growing enterprise application needs, as well as manage employees' needs when working from multiple devices.
Today's business environment demands IT staff to stay one step ahead of the mobile workforce. These latest releases help accomplish this by addressing pressing mobility trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), as well as traditional enterprise pain points like application management.
"IT departments need to effectively manage users and applications – not just devices," said Novell's Director of Product Management, Rick Carlson. "No two users are alike, and Novell's mobility solutions address those differences with flexible management solutions that give users secure access to the applications they need from the device they want."
ZENworks Application Virtualization 10 allows users to get virtual versions of their Windows applications where they need them. Through the click-and-go convenience of secure web portals, users get exactly what they need, when they need it, from any Windows laptop or desktop, regardless of location. This enables IT departments to ensure that users are authorized to access the appropriate applications and can track consumption of virtualized applications to help organizations ensure they optimize their acquisition of software licenses.
ZENworks Mobile Management 2.7 introduces the ability to assign policies to entire Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) groups simultaneously, eliminating the tedious and time-consuming task of adding a new policy to each employee individually.
"With staff and students accessing sensitive school information from multiple devices and locations, we needed a way to secure data without getting in the way of how people need to work," said Robert Guritz, Director of Technology at Bowling Green School District in Missouri. "ZENworks Mobile Management allows us to empower students and employees to work whenever and wherever they'd like regardless of the device or user."
Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 10 and ZENworks Mobile Management 2.7 are both currently available. For pricing and other information, visit http://www.novell.com/products/#endpoint-mgmt or contact your Novell representative.
