ScriptLogic Corporation Demonstrates Creation of a Virtual User Environment With Desktop Authority 7.6

Executives Use Whitepaper and Booth Presentations to Illustrate the Need for Configuration Across the Entire Desktop to Accomplish the Goals of Virtualization

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - VMworld 2007 (Booth 908) -- ScriptLogic® Corporation (, a leading provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® Windows®-based networks, offers IT administrators a valuable resource to optimize the benefits of virtualization with the release of a new whitepaper, "Virtualizing the Desktop with ScriptLogic Desktop Authority." The whitepaper, authored by ScriptLogic's Nick Cavalanica, vice president of Marketing, outlines the steps to provide a productive virtual environment: virtualizing the operating system (OS), virtualizing the applications and virtualizing the user.

According to Cavalancia, the virtualization goals of achieving on-demand IT access, creating a secure, consistently functional working environment, and lowering total cost of ownership can only be accomplished by creating a Virtual User Environment. By applying the configurations that are available through application virtualization to the entire desktop in either an OS virtualization or terminal environment scenario, IT administrators can create the Virtual User Environment.

In April, ScriptLogic released Desktop Authority 7.6, a comprehensive desktop configuration management solution, with enhancements allowing IT administrators to apply end user-specific settings to desktops regardless if the desktops are running in a physical or virtual environment. With one centralized, consistent policy across all desktops and physical/virtual systems, management costs are lower, migrations are faster, and users can freely move between workstations without consideration for the underlying operating environment.

"Virtualizing the Desktop with ScriptLogic Desktop Authority," is available through ScriptLogic at
