Kidaro introduces virtual workspace for enterprise desktop computing
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.

"The enterprise desktop computing landscape has changed," says Kidaro founder and CEO Ran Kohavi. "The workforce has become a diverse mix of users and PCs: desktop workstations, corporate laptops, home users, outsourcers. IT administrators struggle to control unmanaged devices, secure corporate assets and maintain regulatory compliance while meeting user demands for working on any corporate application and resource, anywhere, online and offline. Kidaro Managed Workspace offers an easily managed platform that combines rapid deployment, unparalleled security, complete control and audit over user activity and a familiar, simple user experience."

Kidaro facilitates various enterprise IT scenarios. Extending the enterprise perimeter, Kidaro Managed Workspace enables offshore offices, subsidiaries and remote-users flexible, secured use of enterprise applications and resources. For corporate internal and mobile users, Kidaro offers unmatched data protection solution, isolating and encrypting sensitive information on their machines.

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.
