If you’ve got VMware, you likely have VMware View, VMware Thinapp and/or VMware Horizon.
PolicyPak delivers, enforces, and remediates applications’ settings within VMware View, VMware Thinapp and VMware Horizon.
Watch these videos to see the integration in action.
You already know that VMware Horizon View enables your users to have their own unique "full desktop" available to them, remotely or locally, and run any application they need to. Users really get their "own operating system" and applications just "run perfectly" because they're really running on their own operating system. But you still have a major problem: Users get the apps they need, but you've got zero control over how your users' applications are configured. That's where PolicyPak comes in. Once the application is running inside VMware Horizon View, PolicyPak ensures your applications' settings and locks down the user's access. Watch this video to see how PolicyPak can lock down your applications inside of VMware View (and keep your headaches and helpdesk calls to a minimum).

In this demonstration see PolicyPak working inside your dedicated VDI sessions ensuring that your application settings are set dynamically and always ensured.
When your users are away, you can guarantee that they'll play ... play around with their desktop settings. With PolicyPak in use with your VMware Local Mode clients, you'll have the advatage. PolicyPak ensures that your required IT settings are always adhered to, even when the user is 100% offline using Vmware Horizon View Local Mode. Watch this video to check it out.
Once your ThinApp application is run by your users, they can do practically whatever they want. With PolicyPak, you have the ability dictate specific settings for each of your applications plus lock users down so they can't work around your settings. See how PolicyPak enhances ThinApp environments by providing true Group Policy support to any ThinApp application PLUS lock users down so they cannot work around your settings.
Using VMware Horizon View, administrators can assign ThinApp packages to pools or desktops. When dynamically assigned in this way, users get the ThinApp packages when they log on to the machine. However, users are instantly able to work around any pre-configured settings within the package. Critical IT and security settings can always simply be worked around by the user. That's where PolicyPak fits in and dynamically delivers important IT and security settings and ensures they cannot be worked around.

VMware Horizon Workspace can make available and enforce who has access to ThinApp applications, when computers have the VMware Horizon Workspace agent installed. VMware Horizon Workspace's delivers and entitles the applications' useage. PolicyPak adds to that the ability to manage the actual applications' settings and keep those settings consistently enforced and automatically remediated. In this way, you can now provision the ThinApp (with VMware Horizon Workspace) and now manage the application itself. PolicyPak dynamically delivers IT's desired application settings based upon the user's circumstances, and ensures those settings on the computer.

You're using VMware Horizon Mirage to manage your physical and virtual desktops. But how are you managing your applications' settings? When you use PolicyPak with VMware Horizon Mirage you'll see instant results. When you implement a layer to your desktops, PolicyPak can manage that layer. Check out this video to see exactly how it's done.
PolicyPak: Manage VMware Workstation using Group Policy, SCCM or your own systems management utility
We enforce and lock down the optimum settings values that you, the administrator, want them to have. PolicyPak sets and enforces expectations for your users' applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it, especially for an application such as this that can lead to compounding problems. Keep your VMware Workstation configuration settings enforced and streamlined with PolicyPak. Check out this video to see how it's done.
