What You Need to Know About End User Computing and the Federation


End User Computing (EUC) is a relatively modern approach to networking and work that decouples network control from traditional, hard-wired desktops and recognizes the infiltration of countless non-traditional and mobile devices coming on to the network. This means that the network needs to be secure since the devices accessing it may not be. As with any IT change, EUC can seem overwhelming and quite challenging for many organizations to implement. To ease the obstacles associated with IT change, EMC has brought together a number of the most used and trusted technology vendors to create solutions that help government users realize the promise of EUC and BYOD without sacrificing the comfort and trust that IT teams have in their existing technologies and infrastructure. This group, composed of VMware, RSA, Pivotal, Virtustream, and VCE, is known as the Federation.

With the Federation, government agencies are finding end user computing more simplified. Since today’s professionals prefer mobile access and expect continuous access to mission-critical data no matter, where, when, or what device they’re using, IT must support a broad array of end-user devices. From laptops, to various smartphones, to tablets, and now smart wearables, more and more unsecured devices are entering the workplace and being used to access data, amounting to security risks and huge management challenges for IT teams. With the Federation End-User Computing Solutions, agencies get a more strategic, streamlined approach to managing and securing virtual desktops, BYOD programs, and end-user mobility capabilities. Organizations can deliver applications and desktops at scale in seconds, simplify desktop provisioning, and actually improve security by storing sensitive information within a data center, rather than on end points.
