The combined organization will have a strong market position, with over 1,200 employees in 22 countries, 15,000+ customers, 25+ million endpoints and more than 500 partners.

“Since announcing our intention to acquire AppSense, the feedback we’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Steve Daly, CEO of LANDESK. “Nearly everyone, from customers to industry analysts, has had positive things to say. We look forward to digging in and beginning the process of integrating teams and technologies, and to start getting to know the AppSense partners and customer base.”

Planned product integrations so far include connecting information from the AppSense database with other sources of IT and business data to provide better reporting and real-time reporting,  workspace integration, and product bundles to be announced shortly.

In addition to integrating solutions over time, LANDESK also plans to maintain AppSense products as stand-alone offerings that can be purchased and used separately.
