“Our customers have expressed an increasing interest in alternative client solutions as they look to mitigate ongoing data, security and liability threats within the enterprise,” said Peter Schrady, vice president and general manager, Software & Peripherals Product Group, Lenovo. “Desktop virtualization is a great step in addressing these pain points, and Lenovo’s new relationship with Citrix allows us to offer cost-effective solutions for virtual desktop delivery.”
“Desktop virtualization is rapidly being adopted by enterprises as the best way to enable virtual workstyles for users and increase business agility for IT. XenClient extends the numerous benefits of desktop virtualization to every user in the enterprise, even laptop users that are disconnected from the network. With our partnership with Lenovo we make it incredibly easy for customers to get the benefits of virtualization from the leading supplier of commercial laptops,” said Sumit Dhawan, vice president, product marketing, XenDesktop product group, Citrix.
Lenovo and Citrix desktop virtualization products give insurance, hospital, banking and educational customers the flexibility to provide their employees with anywhere, anytime computing in a business or home environment without breaching company security policies. IT managers can remotely issue centralized single-image management, data security and backup, and recovery for laptop users. In today’s computing environment where users do not always have network access, user data can be automatically and securely backed up to the data center when laptops are later connected to the Internet.
