Kidaro enters desktop virtualization market

Posted by virtualization.info Staff   |   Tuesday, October 31st, 2006   |  

Quoting from the Kidaro official announcement:

Kidaro, provider of virtual desktop computing for the enterprise without boundaries, has announced the Kidaro Managed Workspace™ for extending fully operable, managed, secured and easy-to-use work environments for enterprise users anywhere. Kidaro Managed Workspace encapsulates selected corporate resources and tools — OS, applications, IT/IS management software and remote access clients — into a centrally controlled, protected and isolated workspace that can be deployed to any end–user.

Kidaro’s unique set of technologies go one step beyond any other virtualization platform for enterprise desktops. Leveraging standard, vendor-independent machine virtualization technologies (e.g. VMware Player, VMware Workstation, Microsoft Virtual PC, Microsoft Vista), Kidaro brings the essential elements required to successfully deploy a complete virtualization solution for enterprise end–users:

  • Centralized Management
    Kidaro’s powerful, unified management console streamlines the way IT administrators can create, deploy and update virtual machines, monitor active users, and generate audit trails and reports
  • Optimized Delivery
    Patent-pending Trim Transfer technology dramatically accelerates deployment and reduces the network bandwidth needed to transport a virtual machine by an average 90%, allowing fast delivery via any remote network connection
  • Seamlessness, Transparent Operation
    Kidaro Managed Workspace is the only solution that does not change the user experience when a virtual machine is introduced. The workspace integrates between the local and the virtualized desktops to create a familiar look-and-feel
  • Data protection
    Kidaro Managed Workspace enables policy-based control over any network connection, file transfer, printing, copy-paste or device access, enforcing corporate policies and regulatory compliance

At first sight Kidaro Managed Workspace seems a Sentillion vThere competitior.
