Modern Platform, Built for Efficiency and Speed

VMware Horizon was designed as a modern desktop virtualization platform with flexible licensing and centralized management. With the Horizon Control Plane, admins can deliver and manage desktops from anywhere, on-premises or the cloud (or both!), and count on the same features, like:

  • Simplified application and image management
  • Universal brokering across all workloads
  • Cloud-based monitoring


End-to-End Security from a Trusted Provider

Security is intrinsic to the everything VMware does, from Horizon all the way down to the infrastructure you already trust to deliver your mission-critical apps and services. VMware has a proven security track record and tool set ensuring you'll have:

  • No endpoint data loss
  • Secure enablement of BYO devices
  • Complete access control
  • Centralized patching against vulnerabilities


The Best Digital Workspace Experience

Between Workspace ONE Access, the VMware Blast protocol, and the Horizon client, users can expect:


  • A single interface, accessible from any device or browser, to access all apps and desktops
  • Integration with identity providers for SSO
  • An advanced remote protocol that adapts to changing network conditions and ensures the best possible experience


Unique Integration with Underlying Platforms

When you use VMware Horizon, you get to take advantage of unique, and in some cases exclusive, integrations with supported platforms. For example, with VMware SDDC you get to take advantage of lightning-fast image cloning with VMware Instant Clone technology. With Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure, you can leverage the features of Azure Virtual Desktop like Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session.

  • Simplified application and image management
  • Universal brokering across all workloads
  • Cloud-based monitoring


Reduce Complexity Through Hybridity

Rapidly provision full-featured, personalized virtual desktops and apps with Instant Clone technology while simplifying Day 2 management of images, apps, profiles, and policies to save time and reduce costs.
