Applying virtualization to endpoints offers organizations significant advantages for securely delivering services, data and applications. Virtualization makes it possible to isolate critical corporate IT functionality without needing to be concerned about the other unauthorized applications residing on the machine.
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (PRWEB) May 6, 2008
In an age of enterprise growth that has seen companies extend their global reach to areas previously deemed unimaginable, many companies face an enormous challenge - maintaining complete control of all facets of the distributed network. Current endpoint solutions are capable of connecting dispersed employees to the network but result in significant problems in the form of endpoint performance issues, usability complications and critical security vulnerabilities that can render networks defenseless. With corporate dependence on the functionality of these endpoints becoming paramount in their ability to generate revenue and drive enterprise growth, these problems are simply unacceptable.
The Neocleus approach tackles organizations' most pressing endpoint issues - performance, manageability, security and cost. The company's solutions, which include its Type 1 bare-metal hypervisor, enable critical IT tasks to operate in trusted virtual environments that run outside of and side-by-side with Windows while still offering complete access to all the capabilities offered by the underlying endpoint hardware. This approach provides IT departments with a virtual desktop environment that is easy to control and gives users the flexibility to gain secure access to critical corporate assets from any endpoint regardless of its location or state of security. By doing so, organizations realize the benefits of enterprise-wide virtualization, which allows them to efficiently and securely enable deployment of applications, data and services, ultimately driving revenue and ensuring future growth.
"Endpoints are vast storage tanks of information and the gateway to accessing corporate data banks as well. As the variety of endpoints proliferates they become harder to control and more valuable to attackers," said Charles Kolodgy, research director for Secure Content and Threat Management Research at IDC. "Applying virtualization to endpoints offers organizations significant advantages for securely delivering services, data and applications. Virtualization makes it possible to isolate critical corporate IT functionality without needing to be concerned about the other unauthorized applications residing on the machine."
In addition to the deployment of its trusted endpoint solutions, Neocleus contributes its technology to the open source community and remains committed to creating an ecosystem of innovation that facilitates growth for partners and collaborators. These open source contributions enable software developers to focus on building and maintaining high-performance applications without concern for performance or security issues that result from virtualization initiatives and technologies, and they do so without worrying about the underlying endpoint architecture.
"For the past 18 months, Neocleus has worked vigorously to develop an endpoint strategy and platform that offers IT the flexibility, security and agility for conducting business," said Ariel Gorfung, co-founder and CEO, Neocleus. "Our strategy clearly outlines the need for companies to rethink their approach to endpoint operation and resume control over their distributed enterprise. Doing so will ensure that companies ultimately reduce the cost of managing and securing endpoints, certainly among the most costly IT expenditures for organizations worldwide. Consequently, the endpoint is viewed not simply as an arm of the larger enterprise infrastructure, but rather a fundamental component of future business success."
Neocleus addressees the growing endpoint management and security complexities that now face dispersed organizations. Our innovation in virtualization changes the way endpoints work to make them inherently more manageable and secure without impacting the user experience or computing performance. Our solutions satisfy IT requirements for greater control and lower infrastructure costs, and end-user needs for a more flexible environment in which to increase productivity.
