HP Anyware is the enterprise software that IT needs to keep people and teams productive with secure access to their digital workspaces from any mix of infrastructure (cloud, data center, edge, workstation) and end-user device (PC, Mac, laptop, tablet, thin and zero client), anywhere.

We are excited to announce the public preview of HP Anyware for Windows 365 in select regions. The new value-add solution integrates HP Anyware powered digital workspaces with the persistent, secure, and complete Windows desktop experience of a Cloud PC to support hybrid work scenarios.

As hybrid work has become a prevalent strategic initiative for businesses, IT teams are increasingly adopting virtualization technology to keep employees and contracted workforces productive, no matter where they are located.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Microsoft to deliver HP Anyware for Windows 365 for a consistent work-from-anywhere experience,” says Kumar Kaushik, VP and GM for HP Anyware. “The integration helps organizations of all sizes extend hybrid work scenarios on Cloud PCs, even for their most challenging use cases and security requirements.”

HP Anyware for Windows 365 offers a seamless experience between Microsoft Intune and Anyware, enabling provisioning of Cloud PCs without the need to install connectors and gateways in the customer’s environment. Customers can continue to manage provisioning and configuration of Cloud PCs in Intune. This eliminates the need to open inbound network ports, reducing IT networking demands, alleviating security concerns, and substantially lowering infrastructure and network costs.

“We are pleased to collaborate with HP to deliver Anyware integration with Windows 365,” says Scott Manchester, Vice President of Product for the Windows 365. “With this integration, administrators can seamlessly access their Windows 365 Cloud PC from HP Anyware to efficiently support their demanding workloads, while managing through Intune.”

End users will access their personalized Cloud PCs from HP Anyware-enabled endpoint devices running Windows®, Linux® or MacOS, as well as Trusted Zero Clients or PCoIP®-enabled thin clients.

HP Anyware is based on PCoIP technology, which features adaptive encoders that automatically deliver the best possible user experience under changing network conditions.

No data leaves the safety of the corporate network with PCoIP traffic transmitted in the form of image pixels secured by AES-256 encryption, as well as multifactor authentication for additional layers of security.

For enhanced, secured connectivity to endpoints, organizations can also leverage Trusted Zero Clients and Anyware Trust Center from HP to help integrate a zero trust architecture into their endpoint management strategy.
