We are pleased to bring you a guest blog post by Simon Townsend, Chief Technologist at Ivanti (formally AppSense). Ivanti is a key Citrix Ready partner and their technologies help secure, optimize and automate Citrix environments.

“I-vant(i)” to go to Citrix Synergy…

Citrix Synergy 2017 is just around the corner, and this year, as a Citrix Ready partner and a vendor “formally known as AppSense,” we will be making our debut with Citrix customers under our new name, Ivanti.

In case you’ve missed it, Ivanti is the new name for LANDESK, AppSense, Shavlik, HEAT, and, most recently, Concorde Solutions. Ivanti solutions help IT support, automate, empower, and protect corporate employees and assets, and automate and secure the digital workspace—including workspaces delivered by Citrix.

Ivanti and Citrix Ready

As AppSense, we have been a Citrix Ready partner for over 10 years. Our technology has been deployed on millions of Citrix desktops, delivering secure, high-performing, and personalized workspaces and applications for some of the largest Citrix implementations in the world.

As Ivanti, we’ll continue to make Citrix desktops secure and personalized for each user, with great performance. And now, with more resources and an invigorated commitment to our Citrix partnership, we’re making significant additional investments in the relationship.

Let’s Meet-up at Synergy

With compelling guest speakers like Malcolm Gladwell and General Colin L. Powell, a wealth of strategic and technology updates in the Citrix keynotes and sessions, Hands-on Training, and a packed session catalogue covering Citrix + Cloud, security, IoT, and much more, Synergy 2017 promises to once again deliver the “Citrix event of the year.” In addition, the Solutions Expo will be packed with exhibits from companies that support the Citrix ecosystem, Ivanti included.

Stop by Booth #301 to know how Ivanti helps secure, automate, migrate and optimize all types of Citrix deployments, including support for those moving to the Cloud and those deploying Office 365 in Citrix environments!
