Securely enabling the offline BYOPC & Mac culture for contractors, road-warriors and employees
Horizon FLEX provides central management for Workstation and Fusion. It pushes policy and authorizes access to corporate-sanctioned second desktops. Administrators can set and update restrictions to USB access and interactions with the host computer.
Deliver centrally policy managed, secure containerized corporate desktops to contractors, road-warriors and field workers on PCs and Macs. Enjoy peace-of-mind knowing that remote systems only interact with corporate-approved 3rd party devices. Reclaim Windows' licenses by revoking remote desktops or setting an expiration date. Allow users to select their own hardware and host operating systems (such as Windows 10 or macOS Sierra) while you continue to deliver a desktop that’s secure, tried and tested.
Extend the life of legacy applications using centrally controlled local virtual desktops on modern hardware. Take advantage of the latest in compliance and threat management technologies while continuing to deploy mission critical legacy applications on modern hardware. Avoid expensive support contracts by packaging Windows XP applications as virtual containers, and execute them, unchanged, within trusted environments.
Reduce both the CapEx and OpEx costs associated with operating remote laptops by switching to centrally controlled, cloud distributed, local virtual machines. Reduce CapEx by up to 75% by running multiple Windows and Linux desktops on the same laptop simultaneously, enabling field-workers and engineers to enjoy flexibility and convenience. Distribute corporate-standard desktops via USB or the cloud, reducing OpEx by eliminating the costs associated with shipping laptops during M&A, employee onboarding, maintenance and refresh cycles.
Deliver local virtual desktops to remote users with over 70 policy control points
Assign desktops and policy to remote, disconnected users based on Active Directory credentials.
Control the flow of data between the physical computer and the local virtual desktop using encryption, clipboard, and file sharing policies.
Specify the peripheral category or specific external devices that the local virtual desktop can / cannot use.
Control the life span of virtual desktop with remote lock, wipe and auto-expiration.
Deliver legacy applications and operating systems, securely on modern hardware.
Specify the settings for the virtual Ethernet card. Use the console to set MAC address ranges.
