LANDESK has acquired California-based AppSense, the leading provider of secure user environment management solutions. This acquisition brings LANDESK additional Unified Endpoint Management capabilities, extending its offerings to management of both physical and virtual devices, and eliminating the need for separate tools and processes. In addition, AppSense advances LANDESK’s vision for endpoint protection, further strengthening its security offerings.

“Since announcing our intention to acquire AppSense, the feedback we’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Steve Daly, CEO of LANDESK.  “Nearly everyone, from customers to industry analysts, has had positive things to say.  We look forward to digging in and beginning the process of integrating teams and technologies, and to start getting to know the AppSense partners and customer base.”

Early points of planned product integration include:

 

  • Xtraction integration to connect information from the AppSense database with other sources of IT and business data to provide enhanced visibility and real-time reporting to help drive informed decision making.
  • Workspaces integration to provide IT with a comprehensive view of all the users and devices in their environment, as well as the tools they need to monitor and take action on issues such as overall client health. Integration with the End User Workspace will also provide AppSense end users access to the LANDESK App Store, improving the IT self-service experience.
  • Product bundles and customer-driven product integration. In addition to planned product bundles that will be announced shortly, LANDESK is soliciting feedback from customers to help prioritize areas for additional integration, while continuing to execute on each organization’s published roadmaps.
