Moka5 Announces Four New Issued Patents

Moka5, the leading provider of next generation end-user computing solutions, today announced the issuance of four patents, bringing the total number of Moka5-owned patents to 14, with an additional ten pending. Innovative intellectual property has been the hallmark of Moka5 since its inception. Founded by four doctoral students at Stanford University under the tutelage of Professor Monica Lam, Moka5’s mission has been to bring the benefits of virtualization out of the data center and onto the client as exhibited by its first notable patent – for the first centrally managed locally executing secure PC container.

“Moka5 has been at the forefront of the new enterprise end-user computing market and as such we understand the importance of investing in key intellectual property around client-executing virtual machines,” said Dave Robbins, CEO, Moka5. “Our investments are paying off as our total number of secured patents is 14, with ten pending.”

The patents recently granted add to the depth and utility of client virtualization technology with functions as varied as automated software updates on a virtual machine to techniques for handling hardware-based software product activation in a virtual machine and even a general-purpose computing environment on a consumer electronics device via a virtual machine.

Installed in some of the most demanding IT environments worldwide, Moka5 is solving critical challenges for BYOD/PC, CYOD/PC, contractor management, mobile workforce management, simplified endpoint management and cybersecurity initiatives.

“Moka5 focuses on solving the ‘last mile’ in enterprise computing – namely managing and securing heterogeneous clients in a mobile, dynamically connected and insecure world. While legacy VDI vendors chose one approach – essentially replicating on the client what they did on the server with all the associated infrastructure requirements and complexity- we created an extremely agile and innovative approach to client virtualization around which the market is beginning to consolidate – the locally executing secure container. We continue to spend significant resources on enhancing our IP as our recent launch of Vanguard exhibits,” said Robbins.
