Enhancements and expansions to the RES ONE product family improve management and security of virtual, physical and cloud-based workspace deployments
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — May 19, 2016 — RES, the leader in enabling, automating and securing digital workspaces, today announced the addition of enterprise automation to its RES ONE Workspace solution. The company also announced its RES ONE Workspace Core product, a freemium user environment management (UEM) offering that will be available in July 2016. Also as part of the company’s surge of product development activity, RES announced the immediate availability of enhancements to RES ONE Workspace, which include new features for workspace security, desktop transformation, cloud-related projects and worker productivity.
RES ONE Workspace creates a container for hybrid workspaces that enables delivery of a personal and context-aware workspace for each member of the workforce, for maximum security and productivity. This allows IT to deliver applications of all types – physical, virtual and SaaS – with granular security controls and automated services to reduce manual intervention and better mitigate access risks. The result is more personal technology experience for the workforce, while giving IT the controls to increase security and reduce cost.
“As our customers know, delivering a true digital workspace solution requires automation,” said Bob Janssen, founder, chief technology officer and senior vice president of RES. “This has been the RES vision from the beginning, and it’s why we’ve offered our RES ONE Automation product for years. Now, we’ve incorporated this proven automation technology directly into RES ONE Workspace as one of its four product modules: Automation, Composition, Security and Governance. It’s easier than ever for IT to deploy, manage and secure digital workspaces that are modern and will delight users.”
RES also announced its RES ONE Workspace Core product, which will provide a freemium, basic UEM solution upon its release, expected in July 2016.
“RES ONE Workspace Core is a response to requests from many RES partners for a better way to implement and manage hybrid and VDI desktop deployments: virtual, physical and cloud. By providing an easy entry point into powerful UEM, customers will quickly recognize and realize the value of digital workspace projects,” said Stacy Leidwinger, vice president of products at RES. “This freemium offering from RES should become a key part of all VDI or other workspace transformation opportunities. It helps customers adopt this technology more broadly, and quickly experience the benefits of granular control over the composition, governance, security and automation of the digital workspace.”
RES ONE Workspace Core will offer more advanced functionality than is currently available from similar solutions from technology platform vendors. The key capabilities of RES ONE Workspace Core will include:
Device-based workspace container support
Session-based folder synchronization
Managed user settings and preferences (including Start menu), and data sources
Context awareness controls at a global level
Managed basic and advanced and device settings (e.g., for printers, drives and application settings)
Zero-profiling support, saving user settings at the global level
Citrix, VMWare and Microsoft integration support
Instant Reports (for supportability)
