Solution Overview
VMware Horizon delivers the foundation of the modern Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Server Based Computing (SBC), simply and securely delivering and managing windows application, on any device, from any network. VDI and SBC enable end users to access corporate data and applications with no data at rest on the endpoint. VDI and SBC also enable users to work remotely with secure connectivity into the corporate network, which empowers user productivity while maintaining enterprise security, regardless of application, location or device type. 

Horizon View can be purchased as a standalone product suite or bundled into the Workspace One Enterprise suite.  Workspace ONE delivers the foundation of the modern Digital Workspace. The Unified Catalog capability of Workspace ONE includes integration with VMware Horizon.

This provides a simple and seamless user experience regardless of the device type or resource needed by the user.
