  2. 2. e RES PowerFus USER W ORKSPACE M ANAGEMENT THE WAY YOU NEED IT Is Virtualization part of your corporate desktop strategy? Successful desktop virtualization reduces the high cost of ownership and security risks of physical PCs and reduce desk desktop management through standardization. However, these benefits can only be realized if you offer your end-users nothing less than the physical PC experience they have been used to. — This is why you need User Workspace Management! The world leading user workspace management solution to the enterprise, RES PowerFuse enables IT professionals to dynamically compose and manage a personalized and secure workspace for each and every user - separately from the user’s underlying virtual desktop. This greatly simplifies IT administration, ensures compliance, and saves money.
