With the absorption of AppSense and RES into Ivanti and FSlogix being acquired by Microsoft, former partners of these companies are now actively signing up with Liquidware.
Liquidware VP EMEA Sales Morteza Esteki said: “We witnessed unprecedented demand for our solutions during 2018. We secured the largest application layering deal to date in EMEA for our FlexApp software, signed with some of the largest systems integrators in the region, hired some first-class technical industry talent from companies such as Softcat and Ivanti and saw our penetration increase dramatically into verticals such as Financial Services, Government and Health Care. Our world-class solutions continue to be recognised by industry experts and analysts as leading the field in managing user workspaces.”

Tony Lock, Distinguished Analyst, Freeform Dynamics said that managing the devices, applications, services and data that users rely on everyday has been a challenge for IT administrators since desktop computing became a reality.
“But with business ever more dependent on IT systems working effectively and the added pressure to ensure data security, workspace management has become a critical issue. When you add in the expanding range of devices now being used, ease of management and visibility of systems is now an essential, not a ‘nice to have’”, he said.
