VIRTUAL DESKTOP STRATEGIES, SERVER HYPERVISORS
businesswire | April 03, 2023
Leostream™, the world's leading Remote Desktop Access Platform provider, has announced its new integration with Amazon WorkSpaces Core, providing organizations with a seamless and secure experience for deploying virtual desktops and applications in hybrid cloud environments, particularly when using VMware infrastructures.
WorkSpaces Core enables customers and partners to create custom VDI solutions using purpose-built compute instances optimized for virtual desktops. By adding both Leostream and WorkSpaces Core, organizations that use on-premises VMware hypervisors can easily and quickly maximize the utility of desktops and applications hosted in the cloud, while benefiting from improved security and lower costs.
The combination of using VMware hypervisors on-prem, Amazon WorkSpaces in the cloud, and the Leostream Connection Broker to manage the entire environment provides numerous benefits, including simplified management, better end-user experience, enhanced security and compliance features, greater workflow flexibility, and easier user on-boarding.
"Organizations that rely on VMware for their digital workspace requirements often have users who would benefit from a cloud-based workspace," commented Leostream CEO Karen Gondoly. "However, IT needs a solution that can manage these hybrid environments from a single web-based administrator portal. Leostream is uniquely positioned to offer a seamless way to provide this hybrid experience with WorkSpaces Core and VMware environments. This latest solution is part of Leostream's ongoing efforts to enable enterprises to build a better way to manage hybrid work."
Leostream's platform offers the world's most robust desktop connection management and remote access feature set, providing organizations with the flexibility to choose best-of-breed components to satisfy their complex security, cost, and flexibility needs.
Furthermore, Leostream is renowned for being the go-to solution as the remote desktop access platform of choice—leveraging its unique ability to mix and manage on-premises and cloud-based hosting platforms. The platform's success stems from its ability to orchestrate disparate technologies from a single-pane-of-glass—allowing organizations to advance the state of their entire hosted desktop environment while integrating new technologies as they come to market.
At Leostream, we take great pride in knowing that we are the world's premier and most comprehensive Remote Desktop Access Platform. This is because we believe everyone deserves a seamless work-from-anywhere environment, regardless of industry, size, or location. With the Leostream platform, it all starts with insight paired with simplicity. Powered by a single-pane-of-glass admin console, our platform simplifies the management of users, cloud desktops, and IT assets—all with real-time dashboard access to view usage and environment details, helping to make informed decisions.
VIRTUAL DESKTOP TOOLS, SERVER VIRTUALIZATION
Gigamon | March 13, 2023
Gigamon, the industry leader in deep observability, recently announced the results of a new study from an international data corporation (IDC). It surveyed over 900 IT leaders worldwide and provided invaluable insights for CISOs, CIOs, and their IT organizations to improve performance, security, and productivity with observability throughout all their digital infrastructures. The IDC white paper confirmed that leveraging network-derived knowledge and insights is essential for detecting today's complex security threats across hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures.
With 95% of businesses reporting a ransomware attack in 2022, IT security remains a significant priority for executives across all sectors. However, most respondents (over 60%) to the IDC White Paper agree that present observability solutions only address specific needs and don't give a complete picture of how things run. To reduce vulnerabilities in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, it is crucial to supplement the conventional observability capabilities based on metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT) with real-time network-derived intelligence and insights.
Security (34%), staff productivity (33%), and digital/user experience (22%) are the top advantages of observability (25%).
Nearly 75% of businesses use or intend to employ deep observability technologies to boost automation initiatives in the coming years.
About half of the respondents (51%) of the market will witness significant investments in cloud services
Adherence to the SANS 20 Critical Security Controls, supported by network-derived intelligence, can eliminate 98% of attack vectors.
Mark Leary, Research Director with IDC, remarked, “Networking, cybersecurity, and observability are becoming intertwined. IT organizations are looking to leverage an immutable source of truth and more collaborative management efforts to break down siloed technology approaches, position themselves for long-term success, and, ultimately, deliver the best possible business outcomes.”

Gigamon has over 4,000 customers in over 100 countries, including nine of the ten largest mobile network providers, 80% of the Fortune 100, and hundreds of government and educational institutions. It offers an entire observability pipeline that uses actionable intelligence at the network level. This potent combination aids in enabling IT firms to guarantee security and compliance control, speed up the investigation of performance bottlenecks, and reduce operational overhead related to managing hybrid and multi-cloud IT infrastructure. Due to this, contemporary businesses can take advantage of everything the cloud offers in terms of innovation.
