Traditionally, IT administrators have protected corporate data and applications and controlled costs by providing workers with company-issued, Windows-based laptops or desktops and by defining how and from where workers could access corporate applications and data. However, the evolving workforce of today puts new demands on IT administrators. Road warriors must be productive when disconnected from the corporate network. More and more users demand Macs, even in organizations where Windows is the corporate computing standard. In addition, many companies are moving a significant percentage of their workforce from permanent to temporary or contract roles, eliminating traditional IT controls over corporate applications and data. VMware Horizon FLEX is a policy-based, containerized desktop solution that allows IT administrators to create, secure, and manage local desktops to meet the needs of workers with their own computers, road warriors, and Mac users in the enterprise. End users work within a restricted virtual machine on their endpoints and can be either connected or disconnected from the enterprise network.
