the performance troll with
In end-user computing the ingredient missing
most often is visibility. Before you can even start to improve user
experience you need to know where you stand. Are logons slow,
applications performing badly, users complaining about crashes and
delays? uberAgent is the perfect tool to answer those and many other
questions. Based on a Splunk backend it combines quick and easy
installation with high-quality metrics and a super-small footprint.
In this session, we demonstrate how to use the free
consultant edition of uberAgent to quickly identify problems your
customer did not even know existed. With uberAgent you know if logons
are slow, storage is crappy or RAM is scarce. Geek entertainment

& EUC. There’s a lot of talk about IoT these
days. “Billions of connected devices” .. “big data” .. “going to change
the world.” That’s all well and good, but what does it mean, really? If
you’re an EUC person, do you care about IoT? Will it change your world?
Can you ignore it? What about Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft talking
about it? Does that mean anything to you? What does it have to do with
Windows desktops and managing iPhones? In this talk, Brian Madden will
sort it out, and talk about what you actually need to know, what really
matters, and what you can ignore.
Madden, Brian has spent over 20 years in IT, mostly
focused on the future of end-user computing at the enterprise level.
He’s currently the Lead Field Technologist in VMware’s End-User
Computing office of the CTO. Prior to that, he was known as the creator

your VDI, For Real.
1. Listen to some of the war stories
of major attacks how easily they could have been prevented in so many
cases. The attack surface is constantly changing but with
Citrix being the leader in Application and Desktop virtualization means
it is the next target.
2. Learn how to
secure your deployment with all the free
things. There are so many best practices from Citrix and
Microsoft that can be easily applied to make your environment more
secure (You don’t want to be on the news). Within just a
couple days to weeks most deployments could test and rollout these best
practices for free. We just want to help educate the Citrix
admins out there that think just by Citrix'ing something or using PVS
that their deployment secure. A PVS'ed unpatched deployment
is a hacker’s paradise.
3. Learn about the
most common third-party tools that are used to lock
down Citrix deployments. AV, Application Blocking and a couple other
items. This part will be brief because there are so many
options. We will go over NetScaler Application firewall and
how it should be part of your security model for everything.
11.x, XenDesktop and XenApp core7.x. Microsoft
best practices Windows 10,2012 R2 and Server 2016, SSL implementation
overview and other trends and highlights in the security world that
effect Citrix deployments. We will also go into some high
level overviews when it comes to AntiVirus vendors from Symantec, to
Gibson. Jarian is an independent consultant/solutions

presentation in the big leagues. Shake and Bake.

Identifying and fixing issues to make your consumer browser suitable for the Enterprise. Today’s modern browsers are designed for use by the general public and not for the corporate environment. The browser developers target speed and usability for the home consumer market and not necessarily for the corporate enterprise. By manipulating the databases browsers use and identifying cookies and files they place in your profile, WebData Control gives you the ability to selectively retain the files your business requires and gives the users the optimal performance for the environments you’ve built. Avanite’s WebData technology makes the modern web browser more suitable for corporate environments and puts the control back in the hands of the IT professional.
