Remote desktop access platform provider Leostream introduced new software features to enhance security, management and end-user productivity within vSphere-based hybrid cloud environments.
The Leostream platform specifically strengthens end-user computing capabilities for vSphere users, including secure access to on-premise and cloud environments, heterogeneous support and reduced cloud costs. With Leostream functioning as a single pane of glass for managing EUC environments, any hosted desktop environment – including individual virtual desktops, multi-user sessions, hosted physical workstations or desktops and hosted applications – becomes simpler to manage, more secure, more flexible and more cost-effective.
Updated capabilities include:
- Ensuring data remains locked in the corporate network, and working across on-premise and cloud-based environments, to provide disparate infrastructures with comparable levels of security and command over authorization, control and access tracking.
- Supporting heterogeneous infrastructures and, as the connection management layer of the EUC environment, allowing organizations to leverage vSphere and other hypervisors or hyperconvergence platforms.
- Enabling IT to make changes to the underlying environment while ensuring the end user experience is constant, also incorporating AWS, Azure, Google Cloud or OpenStack private clouds into an environment without disruption.
- Connecting to on-prem and cloud resources without VPNs, eliminating the need to manage and maintain security groups.
- Implementing automated rules that control capacity and power state in the cloud, allowing organizations to optimize cloud usage and minimize cost.
“These features deliver a streamlined experience with vSphere and hybrid or multi-cloud resources so end users remain productive, and corporate data and applications remain secure,” said Leostream CEO, Karen Gondoly. “At a time when there is uncertainty about the future of support for VMware’s end-user computing, it’s important to bring these options to the market to show that organizations can extend vSphere’s capabilities and simultaneously plan for the future without disruption to the workforce.”
