New Platform Enables Users to Use The Applications They Need on The Devices They Want

InstallFree, a leading developer of application portability solutions, today announced Rakesh Narasimhan as its new Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Narasimhan is a software industry veteran and has been with Microsoft for the last 15 years, where he was the General Manager of Cloud Services Technologies.

“We are very excited to have Rakesh on board. Rakesh brings the expertise and experience that will enable InstallFree to deliver new capabilities to customers while leveraging the core technologies we have developed for the past six years," said Yori Gabay, founder and COO of InstallFree.

Users are adopting mobile devices such as Apple iPad® at an unprecedented rate and expect to use them as productivity tools. When users bring their devices to work, they realize that there is a gap in their ability to continue using their existing desktop and web applications. For example, users struggle with the inability to effectively edit and preserve Microsoft Office® documents, inability to access and use rich web applications written using Adobe Flash®, Microsoft Silverlight® and Oracle Java®, and difficulties in using collaboration platforms such as Microsoft SharePoint®. And this is only the beginning.

To close this gap, users and IT departments have resorted to using a variety of remote desktop technologies. However, these technologies offer a user experience that is not optimized for the user's device, and create a very large burden on the IT organization in terms of equipment, software and ongoing management costs.

"In order to address the needs of users to maintain their productivity when moving to a new device, I am excited to announce a new product focus for InstallFree, code-named "Nexus", that builds upon our company's extensive expertise in application portability, compatibility and virtualization," said Rakesh Narasimhan, CEO of InstallFree. "InstallFree Nexus bridges the gap between the user's devices, applications and documents."

InstallFree Nexus is a cloud platform designed to enable users to access the applications they need, on the devices they want, with native access to their documents stored on popular cloud services such as DropBox.

Availability and pricing information for InstallFree Nexus products will be announced at a later date. For more information about InstallFree Nexus, please visit InstallFree's website at
