US-based LANDesk has added to its portfolio through its acquisition of endpoint security and user profile management vendor, AppSense.
Financial terms of the deal haven't been disclosed.
This is the seventh acquisition for LANDesk in five years and will expand its capabilities in unified endpoint management to include both physical and virtual devices. AppSense will also add advanced endpoint protection capabilities to the product portfolio.
LANDesk CEO, Steve Daly, said the acquisition strengthens its virtualisation expertise.
The AppSense user virtualisation technology allows IT to secure and simplify control of physical, virtual and cloud-delivered desktops.
Its user environment management solutions improve the overall user experience, security and management of endpoints under one solution.
AppSense CEO and president, Scott Arnold, said joining LANDesk made strategic sense and provides customers and partners with the option for a total endpoint management strategy from a single vendor.
AppSense was established in 1999 and maintains a strong customer base in healthcare, banking, and finance, where VDI is strong and compliance is critical.
