appCURE Announces Integration between Nerdio Manager for Enterprise and appCURE Studio

appCURE Announces Integration between Nerdio Manager for Enterprise and appCURE Studio

 appCURE is pleased to announce our latest partnership and Integration with Nerdio , combining the capabilities of both technologies to help customers migrate to Microsoft’s fast-growing desktop, application and virtualization offerings (Azure, Microsoft 365 and Azure Virtual Desktop). 


 As more and more organisations look to migrate services and applications to the cloud, one of the biggest challenges remains the migration of applications from older operating systems. This problem becomes more apparent when missing installation media and lost documentation and information are required, which can cause a significant impact to a migration project’s timeline or stall a project completely. This, combined with challenges around cost implications of the cloud, optimisation and management of scalable technology, can cause organisations to run up large unoptimized IT costs.
The Nerdio and appCURE partnership and new integration helps organisations quickly simplify application migration, management and transformation into a production environment. In addition, the integration offers enhanced application lifecycle management and the advantage of modern application formats such as MSIX and MSIX App Attach .
Combining Nerdio and appCURE provides a best-in-class enterprise workspace solution for Microsoft 365 and Azure Virtual Desktop.


Dynamic application delivery, also known as MSIX app attach

 Nerdio Manager for Enterprise adds value on top of Azure Virtual Desktop, Windows 365, and Microsoft Intune by delivering hundreds of features that simplify management, ensure efficient operations, and lower Azure compute and storage costs by up to 80%.
Today, Nerdio offers improved MSIX App Attach capabilities and streamlined management in the Nerdio Manager for Enterprise platform that adds great value on top of Azure Virtual Desktop’s native capabilities and provides an enhanced experience for the IT admin. In addition, Nerdio’s solution takes care of application lifecycle management, version control and code signing certificate requirements required for MSIX packages and MSIX App Attach.


appCURE’s application transformation portfolio

appCURE is based on Capture, Update, Remediate and Execute (CURE), the four base process principles on which the technology is built on. appCURE provides a comprehensive application packaging toolkit designed to unstick application migration projects and simplify the transition of applications to modern digital workspaces. appCURE also helps handle day two operations, including managing updates when required to keep applications in production.
Using appCURE Studio, you can package and convert applications into MSIX even if you don’t have the original installer for the application. appCURE’s running capture technology enables you to capture the application off the older operating system & package the captured app directly into MSIX, avoiding project delay and enabling the applications to be delivered to a modern digital workspace.
appCURE boasts an average time of approximately 6-8 minutes per application transformation, including smoke testing.


Nerdio and appCURE Integration

With appCURE studio 3.4 and future releases, you can now take full advantage of the Nerdio and appCURE Integration, which enables you to easily capture, transform and publish applications into the MSIX format for any user. There is no manual action or scripting required when using Nerdio and appCURE. appCURE and Nerdio simplify the IT administrator’s MSIX App Attach experience and reduce the number of master images needed when delivering a virtual desktop environment. appCURE transforms the applications and delivers them into Nerdio’s MSIX app attach library.
appCURE and Nerdio help customers migrate quicker to production, unstick stalled projects and continue to manage application version control and cost optimisation today and into the future as the platform changes to facilitate the business challenges.

appCURE Studio 3.4: New Features and Enhancements for Secure Application Transformation

appCURE Studio 3.4: New Features and Enhancements for Secure Application Transformation

We are thrilled to announce the release of AppCURE Studio 3.4, our latest version of the transformation studio product. This new release introduces several new features and enhancements that offer our customers greater flexibility and security, enabling them to easily transform their applications.

One of the most significant features of appCURE Studio 3.4 is the full Azure Key Vault support for batch MSIX package signing, including certificate creation. Azure Key Vault for certificates provides organisations a secure, centralised, and scalable solution for managing digital certificates. It simplifies certificate management, reduces the risk of security breaches, and enables Packagers/IT Pros/Developers to code-sign MSIX packages with confidence. With this feature, our customers can now securely store and manage their code signing certificates in Azure Key Vault, offering an extra layer of protection for their applications. Additionally, our customers can create and manage signing certificates directly from within the appCURE Studio interface.

Another significant enhancement is the ability to modify MSIX capabilities, giving our customers greater control over their MSIX packages and modification capabilities. MSIX capabilities are a set of permissions that define how an application can access resources and interact with the operating system. These capabilities are used to ensure that an application has access only to the resources it needs and that it cannot perform any unauthorized actions. This feature enables our customers to add or remove capabilities from their MSIX packages, ensuring that their applications have the necessary permissions to function correctly and securely. It is particularly useful for complex applications that require specific capabilities to be enabled.

In addition, appCURE Studio 3.4 introduces Enforce Package Integrity, a critical security feature that enables our customers to enable and disable package integrity for MSIX. This feature ensures that the contents of an MSIX package have not been tampered with or modified in any way, making it ideal for enterprise environments where security is a top priority. With Enforce Package Integrity enabled, enterprise IT teams can ensure that the software they deploy is secure and has not been tampered with, which can help to prevent data breaches and other security incidents.

Furthermore, we have introduced Blob Storage Upload, a new feature that allows our customers to upload folders of files directly to Azure Blob Storage from within appCURE Studio. This feature is designed to streamline operations and make it easier for our customers to store large amounts of application packages in the cloud. Blob Storage Upload is a simple, streamlined way to upload files, making it a valuable addition to the appCURE Studio toolset.

We have also added an Azure Deploy Template, which enables our customers to quickly deploy appCURE Studio and all the required features by simply filling in a simple Azure template form. Additionally, we have introduced ISO creation, which allows our customers to store transformed packages in an ISO. This feature is ideal for companies that require the offline deployment of their applications or the portability of multiple packages.

In addition to these features, we are pleased to announce that the following integrations are now generally available:

  • Parallels RAS Integration
  • Nerdio Integration
  • Workspace One Integration
  • Application Readiness
  • AppVentix

These integrations offer our customers greater flexibility and ease of use, allowing them to integrate appCURE Studio with other tools and platforms.

In conclusion, appCURE Studio 3.4 is an exciting release that introduces several new features and enhancements, including Azure Key Vault support for certificates and MSIX package signing, MSIX capabilities modification, Enforce Package Integrity, Blob Storage Upload, Azure Deploy Template, and ISO creation. These features offer our customers greater flexibility and security, enabling them to confidently manage their applications and data in the cloud.

For a full list of features and improvements, please see the release notes.

In this post, we’ll share some of the feedback we’ve received from Microsoft and explain how appCURE can help your business benefit from the power of MSIX.

What is MSIX?

MSIX is a modern packaging format that simplifies and streamlines the process of packaging, delivering, and managing Windows apps. MSIX enables several benefits, such as reliability, security, performance, and flexibility, that traditional packaging formats like MSI or EXE can’t offer. MSIX packages are self-contained, signed, and can be installed, updated, or uninstalled with minimal impact on the system.

Why is MSIX Important?

MSIX is essential because it offers a modern way of delivering and managing apps that aligns with the current and future needs of IT and end-users. With MSIX, you can benefit from features like:

Auto-updates and versioning: MSIX packages can update themselves automatically and keep track of the installed version, which reduces the burden of manual updates and ensures compatibility.

Containerization and isolation: MSIX packages can run in a containerized and isolated environment, which enhances security and stability.

Simplified deployment: MSIX packages can be deployed through the Microsoft Store, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, Intune, or other management tools, which simplifies the deployment process.

Flexibility: MSIX packages can support various scenarios, such as streaming, virtualization, cloud attach, or traditional install, which makes them adaptable to different environments.
