Can you elaborate just a bit on what features ForeFront delivers supporting Microsoft`s VDI strategy? Is it mostly on the compliance management and auditing side, or does it also contribute to alleviating anti-malware concerns? How do you diffirentiate Microsoft`s VDI from a security perspective from VMware or Citrix?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Microsoft Forefront is a client security software that works the same way for physical and virtual desktops. With VDI, desktops are locked in the datacenter, and hence organizations get an added level of security with VDI desktops. However, virtual desktops are subject to the same security threats and best practices as physical desktops, and hence organizations are requested to evaluate the policies that will apply to their virtual environments.
