Stream Theory, Inc., a leading developer of patented virtualized software delivery and digital rights management solutions, today announced it has been awarded U.S. Patent number 7,096,253 for "Method and Apparatus for Streaming Software." The patent, which covers core technology related to streaming remotely located software programs and data to a local computer, underpins the Company's worldwide leadership role in virtualized software delivery.

"This new patent, now added to our growing patent portfolio, firmly positions Stream Theory as a focused technology company and leading developer of a virtualized software delivery platform for the Internet and other high-speed networks," commented Steig Westerberg, CEO of Stream Theory. "Our versatile platform supports the goals of the business world to deliver on-demand software with instant worldwide deployment, centralized updating, measured usage, but without impacting operating systems.

Traditional online delivery methods require complete download, installation on end user computers, and costly one-on-one updates and support.

Streamed software is delivered to and updated in a secluded environment guaranteeing the integrity of the operating system and all the applications. This new patent granted to Stream Theory helps support the rapidly rising practice of providing software as a service for businesses and game/software/digital media subscriptions and try-before-you-buy for online consumers.
