ZENworks Value Bundle includes ZENWorks Configuration Management-Standard, ZENworks Patch Management, ZENworks Endpoint Security Management, ZENworks Asset Management and ZENworks Application Virtualization.
Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization is an easy-to-use solution for deploying your Windows, .NET and Java-based applications in compact, preconfigured virtual executables that run in your existing IT environment. Distribute the executables via the Web, USB keys or from your existing desktop management infrastructure. There are no additional agents or device drivers to support, and no virtual machines to set up or manage. If you prefer to build MSIs and deploy them using MSI distribution tools, ZENworks Application Virtualization is capable of doing that, too. Using this approach to application deployment, you can dramatically reduce deployment and maintenance costs associated with traditional application setup and distribution while ensuring a high-quality end-user experience.
Novell ZENworks Asset Management integrates asset inventory, software usage and license reconciliation to provide the most complete, accurate view of software installations and license compliance available. The combination of hardware, software and purchasing data enables you to get a complete view of your IT assets. This ensures license compliance and eliminates software overspending, so you purchase only the licenses your organization needs.
Use Novell ZENworks Configuration Management imaging and personality migration features to facilitate Vista migrations, while preserving personal desktop and application settings. This simplifies the restoration of personal environments and minimizes business disruptions during upgrades. You can also manage Vista using the ZENworks policy-driven approach to deliver applications, remote control and more.
You can also integrate ZENworks Configuration Management with Active Directory or Novell eDirectory - or even multi-directory environments. ZENworks dynamically reads user identity information from your directory. This way, you can continue to manage users with your directory of choice and use ZENworks to manage the applications and policies intended for those users. No user account replication or synchronization is required.
Novell ZENworks Endpoint Security Management, a WorkloadIQ product, provides identity-based security for mobile devices like laptops, MP3 players, thumb drives, and more. Your end users are undoubtedly using a wide variety of mobile devices to work on business no matter where they are. But the devices they're using are not always behind your perimeter security. Since they're lightweight and portable, they're also highly susceptible to being lost or stolen. And wireless connections let users access networks that may not be secure, inadvertently putting your data at risk.
Novell ZENworks Endpoint Security Management is the answer to your mobile security worries. It ensures that mobile devices outside your perimeter security are safe and secure. You can safeguard removable storage devices - like USB drives and MP3 players. You can distribute, enforce, and audit encryption policies on all your endpoints. And constant monitoring of security alerts lets you know instantly when problems arise.
ZENWORKS APPLICATION VIRTUALIZATION FEATURES:
Say goodbye to application conflicts
Novell ZENworks virtualized applications run in an isolated environment that's immune to conflicts with internal applications. Each virtualized application is packaged with all application files, settings, runtimes, and components needed to run immediately.
Slash the time required to test and deploy applications
Preparing applications for deployment has traditionally required time- and labor-intensive testing. According to Gartner Research, it's the primary reason most companies only have 10 to 25 percent of their application portfolios packaged.
