Hi! I noticed the very same while upgrading my Horizon Client (on macOS) to version "2309" (8.11.0-22660933) today. Based on my "preliminary research" it seems to be an AirWatch-related telemetry-services, now shipping with the Horizon Client

I also noticed some new background services in macOS (which initially got me curious). After some research, I successfully uninstalled the (new) telemetry services, and they are not listed under System Settings(.app) > General > Login Items > Allow in the Background anymore.

Please note that I have not investigated any side affects (yet). I wrote a quick blog post/summary on findings (and how to uninstall) here: https://espenodegaard.com/blog/2023-10-31-horizon-client-2309-wandering-wifi-lcc
