Companies Join Forces to Offer High-Performing, Secure Access to Virtual Desktops and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) for the Mobile-Cloud Era
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Feb 12, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — VMWARE PARTNER EXCHANGE – F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) and VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW)
F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) and VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) today announced a number of collaborative efforts designed to provide secure access control for customers’ virtual desktop deployments. The companies’ compelling new offerings introduce powerful capabilities to uniquely meet customer needs in the mobile-cloud era, as end-users continue to work from all locations, and access their desktops and applications from various mobile devices.
F5 is bringing to market new versions of its BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM®) solution that have been tailor-made to deliver secure access and optimized performance for VMware Horizon View. Available in a range of throughput and concurrent user options, these new offerings cost-effectively enable customers of different size and scale to add industry-leading secure access technologies to Horizon View. In addition, F5 is introducing a dedicated iApp and reference architecture to significantly speed deployments and provide prescriptive guidance on how these new solutions support VMware technologies.
Building on longstanding technology collaboration, the pairing of VMware EUC solutions with F5′s intelligent application service technologies will provide sophisticated, powerful, and secure solutions to meet customer requirements to deliver workforce mobility while maintaining control and security, now and in the future.
VMware is providing access to APIs and remote access protocol extensions that will enable F5 to extend their current solutions to add even richer access control over Horizon View environments. With this enhanced integration, customers can exercise more granular control based on device, location, and other access variables, and are able to redirect users to different apps or clouds in a global deployment.
“F5 shares our commitment of helping customers prepare for and embrace the mobile-cloud era. Adoption of VMware’s virtual desktop solutions continues to grow at a rapid pace, and with F5′s new offerings, customers have options of how to best combine technologies to enable mobile workforces to access their desktops and apps securely anytime and anywhere. I am excited about the strategic alignment and collaboration between VMware and F5, which will bring even richer solutions to our customers.” - Sanjay Poonen, executive vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware
“One of our goals in building an ecosystem of partners is to combine the advantages of F5 technologies with the compelling offerings of vendors in adjacent markets. Intelligent services orchestration is a core tenet of the F5 Synthesis™ architectural vision, and we see VMware as a key partner in this space. Together, we look forward to deepening our successful collaboration with VMware to bring additional joint VDI solutions and benefits to enterprise organizations and beyond.”
