“Recent virtualization technologies have made huge strides in alleviating cost and simplifying management; however, tremendous IT challenges still remain in managing and securing distributed client computing,” said Chad Jones, Vice President Management for Neocleus, “To address these systemic issues, a new client computing model is needed. Neocleus will be pivotal in providing this new paradigm, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team that will transform how client computing operates.”
Neocleus’ client virtualization platforms drive a new model for client computing, dramatically improving the manageability, security and flexibility of laptops and desktops while simultaneously reducing ownership costs. At the core of each platform is the Neocleus Client Virtualization Framework (CVF) a finely tuned, richly featured, development engine that is compatible with any Type 1 bare metal client hypervisor. The company’s flagship product Neocleus NeoSphere, built using the CVF, is an end user computing platform. NeoSphere isolates and fully secures multiple instances of an operating system on a single PC while allowing each instance to be centrally managed. Organizations deploy Neocleus’ platforms to satisfy diverse use cases including isolating workspaces, increasing worker productivity, improving business continuity, securing porous boundaries and moving critical IT infrastructure functions outside the operating system so that they can be managed more efficiently.
