Goldman Sachs Invests US$70 million in AppSense

Virtualisation solutions provider AppSense has signed an agreement to receive a US$70 million investment from invest bank Goldman Sachs, according to a statement released by the company last night. AppSense will use the funds to accelerate growth to market leader in what is expected to become a $2 billion market by 2015. Pete Perrone, managing director at Goldman Sachs, will join the company's board of directors. “With the increased mobility of the workforce and the need to be able to access information from any device, Goldman Sachs sees a clear demand for user virtualisation solutions that span multiple desktop delivery methods,” says Perrone, according to the statement. “AppSense’s strong customer traction, history of innovative solutions in desktop computing, and the record growth it has experienced over the past two years further solidified our decision to invest in the company.” AppSense provides IT management solutions focusing upon virtual environments. “As an organisation, we have been around for 14 years,” says ANZ general manager, Sean Walsh, according to a Reseller Newsarticle last year. The company began within the Citrix environment, but is now increasingly moving into other markets.

The AppSense management suite is modular software that provides diverse functionality for managing the virtual environment and ensuring the same look and feel on desktops no matter where they are accessed. AppSense provides mobile personalisation, as well as related technology such as security and licence management.

“Desktop virtualisation helps to reduce costs, while providing flexibility, and securing information,” says Walsh. “We bring user management. Frequently, companies haven’t thought of how to provision virtual desktops from a centralised environment. We can help with this and can also aid in areas such as rollout of Windows 7. Most companies will adopt a hybrid desktop model, with some physical and some virtual. We bring user management to all platforms, with centralised console management.”
