VMwareToday, business people new types of devices for work, accessing Windows applications alongside non-Windows-based applications, and are more mobile than ever.

In this new mobile cloud world, managing and delivering services to end users with traditional PC-centric tools has become increasingly difficult. Data loss and image drift are real security and compliance concerns. And organisations are struggling to contain costs. Horizon 6 provides IT with a new streamlined approach to deliver, protect, and manage Windows desktops and applications while containing costs and ensuring that end users can work anytime, anywhere, on any device.

With VMware Horizon 6, you can have virtualised or remote desktops and applications delivered and managed from a single centralised platform and deliver End User Computing (EUC) so your users can securely access their business applications from anywhere and from whichever device they are using: desktop, notebook, tablet and mobile phone.

VMware Horizon 6 solves the challenge of providing a unified workspace with a great user experience  – you can securely and easily deliver desktops, applications and online services to end users through a single unified workspace.
