From the partner mail I just received:
A new version of Workspace Manager is available today! This new version now offers capabilities to set dynamic privileges, website security, integration with Service Orchestration and much more. This builds on the proven and trusted advantages of a centrally managed and dynamic computing environment, zero profile technology and being OS and application delivery independent.
I’ve already build a PoC with the RC version of RES Workspace Manager 2011 so I had the chance to see how dynamic privileges and website security works. Especially the dynamic privileges feature is a big win in this release. From now on we can define an application to run with elevated rights (Run as administrator) when published via RES Workspace Manager. I know that there are a lot of customers were waiting for this feature.
Other new features are:
What does it do?
|Dynamic Privileges||More flexibility for the end user||Principle of least privilege|
|More control for the administrator||Legacy applications with Windows 7 security|
|Elevate processes without modifying user account/ context|
|Improved user installed applications||Allow or block specific software||More flexibility for the end user|
|Dynamic Privileges||More control for the administrator|
|Website security||More web applications||Allow or block specific websites|
|Proxy servers are not context aware||Based on context of the user|
|User settings templates||Roaming profiles are difficult to manage and contain slack||Easy configuration of personalization|
|Moving away from roaming profiles||Commonly used applications
–Microsoft Office 2003, 2007 & 2010
–Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, 7 & 8
–Mozilla Firefox 1, 2 & 3
