AppSense (, the leading provider of user environment management solutions for the enterprise, today announced that AppSense Environment Manager 8.0 won the Silver award in the Desktop Virtualization category of the 2009 Products of the Year Awards. These awards are conducted annually and are presented and judged by the editors of TechTarget’s Data Center and Virtualization Media Group. Products are judged based on ease of integration into existing environments, functionality, innovation, manageability, performance and value. The award recognizes companies that the publication and its judges believe are best positioned to provide great products in 2010 and beyond.

“AppSense Environment Manager addresses some nagging pain points for users. One of the biggest complaints from users about virtual desktops is the lack of personalization,” according to 2009 Products of the Year judges. “AppSense has found a unique answer to this criticism with Environment Manager. By decoupling the user profile from the desktop and putting it on a server, personalization persists even across a pooled desktop environment. No matter which client is used to connect to a desktop – whether it’s a desktop, laptop, thin client or smart phone – the personalization carries over to the next login.”

AppSense Environment Manager is the only enterprise solution that enables standardized desktop environments to be fully configured and personalized without the need for cumbersome profiles or scripts. From server-based computing environments through to virtual and physical desktops, AppSense Environment Manager ensures users always receive a consistent, predictable and personalized working experience. Full desktops can now be configured and business rules applied on-demand, enabling compliant, personalized virtual desktops to be quickly delivered to thousands of users at lowest possible cost. Additionally, AppSense technology is used in conjunction with many third party systems integrators, including CSC, HP, EDS, Dell and IBM.

“We are pleased that AppSense Environment Manager is recognized by as one of the top desktop virtualization products to watch in 2010,” said Peter Rawlinson, vice president of worldwide marketing at AppSense. “Receiving the 2009 Product of the Year award further validates AppSense’s unique approach in managing all aspects of the user on the corporate desktop. As desktop virtualization adoption continues to increase, we are eager to continue providing award winning technology enabling increased user productivity at a low per-user cost.”
