We’re working with our partner FSLogix to save businesses time and money by reducing the complexity in delivering applications in XenApp and XenDesktop environments. FSLogix Application Masking does this by implementing licensing control and delivering certain applications to those users that need it and hiding it, not showing it or removing access completely to those users that don’t need it. FSLogix application masking works for any environment, including Microsoft desktop environment, VMware horizon, on premises environment and cloud based environments such as Azure or AWS.

I am Aaron Parker, a Solutions Architect at Insentra and we’re working with our partner FSLogix to reduce the complexity of delivering applications in XenApp and XenDesktop environments. With FSLogix Application masking we can reduce the complexity of delivering images in XenApp and XenDesktop environments by hiding and showing applications to users based on user group membership.
So this might include full applications, it might include internet explorer plugins, it might include office plugins. For example, we might have a user who needs access to Adobe professional while everyone else only needs access to adobe reader. We can put all those applications into the one image and hide them and show them depending on who the end user is. It doesn’t only work for reducing the complexity of that image, it also works for licensing too. So in this example I have a license for acrobat professional. I only have one license so I can deliver that to that one user while everyone else never sees that application and they only get access to acrobat reader.
So FSLogix application masking saves business time and money by reducing the complexity inside XenApp and XenDesktop environments and by implementing licensing control we can save money by delivering certain applications to those users that need it and hiding it, not showing it or removing access completely for those users that don’t need access to the application. FSLogix application masking also works in any environment, so not only is it great for XenApp and XenDesktop environments it will work for Microsoft remote desktop environment, it will work for VMware horizon, it will work with on premises environment and will also work with cloud based environments such as Azure or AWS.
