Liquidware | February 22, 2023
On February 21, 2023, Liquidware has released ProfileUnity v6.8.5. It has features for managing Windows apps and user environments from one place. With this version, you can use its management console to deploy and assign a lot of new Windows apps. The traditional FlexApp from Liquidware, MSIX, MSIX App Attach, Microsoft App-V, and VMware ThinApp are all among these apps.
Administrators can also hide certain apps from certain users and make them available only to certain users based on filters that know about the user's context. ProfileUnity v6.8.5 also gives users a secure access framework that works with single sign-on (SSO), federation, and smart cards.
Steve Greenberg, President and Principal Architect of Thin Client Computing, a leading Liquidware partner, said, "This latest release of ProfileUnity brings with it significant benefits for our customers that work with Thin Client Computing for their digital workspaces." He also said, "Further centralization of user management and apps within the ProfileUnity console frees up admins' time to be proactive rather than reactive." He says with confidence, "When combined with Liquidware's FlexApp and Stratusphere UX solutions, they give Windows enterprises a complete digital workspace management suite."

Cloud technologies are increasingly being adopted by government contractors and federal government agencies in order to support agility, increase efficiency, and cut costs. The FedRAMP authorization enables these companies to deploy Skyhigh SWG, a component of the Skyhigh Security Service Edge (SSE) portfolio, to offer continuous, secure access for users anywhere, safeguard vital government information, and defend against sophisticated contemporary threats.

Skyhigh SWG allows users authorized by the government to securely access the web and cloud from any location and on any device. It keeps threats from infiltrating and sensitive data from exfiltrating an environment by monitoring inline traffic and acting as a gateway between websites, users, apps, and data. Skyhigh SWG protects federal agencies against potentially hazardous or unauthorized websites and cloud apps by utilizing several integrated technologies such as Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP).
From a single cloud-native enforcement point, the Skyhigh SSE portfolio secures data and prevents threats in the cloud across all Infrastructure-as-a-Service environments, Software-as-a-Service applications, and Shadow IT.
As a cloud service, it equips enterprises with visibility and control over their data in the cloud, regardless of where it resides. It delivers a single DLP engine with a single simple-to-use centralized administration and reporting dashboard, a single policy framework across all data exfiltration channels, and multi-layered security technologies to cover all conceivable use cases in the federal government environment.
