ProfileUnity is VMware's Recommended Solution for User Environment Management in their End User Computing environments.

VMware’s desktop products portfolio provides the industry’s broadest and most flexible platform for delivering Windows desktops and applications to end-users. Enterprises can deploy Horizon 6 for VDI and RDSH, subscribe to the Horizon DaaS service or deploy Horizon Mirage for managing physical desktops. Our customers use User Environment Management (UEM) products as a valuable complement to deliver additional value to end users. Liquidware Labs’ ProfileUnity enables full User Environment Management across all types of VMware Horizon 6 desktops including VDI and RDSH. ProfileUnity’s comprehensive features, such as context-aware capabilities for policy management and application rights management, give many enterprises the flexibility and scalability they need to complement and maximize the investment in their Horizon implementation.”
