Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) selects AppSense (Citrix Ready Solution of the Year) to provide a seamless & personal user experience across their physical desktop and new Citrix virtual desktop environment.
CDC have over 10,000 unique visitors accessing their Citrix infrastructure from multiple device and site locations on a monthly basis and found that personalization was unable to effectively roam between desktops using only Roaming Profiles. Further more desktops must be dynamically configured with different security rules, access permissions and lockdown when the user access their desktop from different locations or devices.
As part of any large-scale deployment of a User Virtualization solution the CDC performed due diligence and evaluated other technologies on the market, however found;
“AppSense is the market leader in the user virtualization space so it was an easy decision for us. We evaluated other products but AppSense was really the only solution out there that could scale and do what we needed. We knew AppSense was the right approach to deliver the best experience for the user and the best way for our IT department to manage the system.” - Lee Eilers, Remote Access Services Team Lead – CDC.
CDC also decided on AppSense as their strategic solution for the universal support of managing the user across locally installed applications, Citrix delivered applications, and Microsoft App-V applications.
Personally i think this is a great case study as it covers:
• The requirement for (AppSense) User Virtualization (UV) in a large virtual desktop environment
• As per many of our other Enterprise customers, the number of UV seats is actually bigger than desktop virtualization seats as it also spans Physical Desktops
• Policy is also of huge importance and only AppSense provides the granular controls required.

Thanks to all at CDC and AppSense for great work on this leading deployment of Citrix, Microsoft and AppSense technologies.
