Automatic Virtual Computing Protection Partnership

AVG UK And Ireland : 23 August, 2010  (Company News)
Virtual Desktop experts MokaFive partners with AVG Technologies to offer users automatic desktop protection from malware
AVG Technologies has announced a partnership with MokaFive, the virtual desktop management company. The partnership adds a critical security layer to the virtual desktop marketplace, as more enterprise companies are turning to desktop virtualization as a secure solution for bring your own computer (BYOC) and work from home initiatives for employees.

With this announcement, AVG Anti-Virus is now integrated into the MokaFive virtual desktop management suite to provide the industry's first complete solution for a secure virtual desktop that can be deployed directly on the end user's personal machines. The solution enables consumers that work for enterprises to use AVG's free software to protect their personal workspace, while at the same time assuring that sensitive corporate information contained in the virtual desktop is always kept safe.

Driven by the continued growth in virtual desktops, expected to grow to 49 million units worldwide by 2013 (Gartner, Mar 2009), virtual desktop security presents a new set of security challenges. AVG, which boasts the world's largest consumer security user base, at 110 million users worldwide, is in a prime position with its consumer focused, enterprise-strength solutions to protect virtual environments on consumer desktops and laptops. Millions of customers already trust the security of their physical desktops to AVG, and now users can enjoy the same level of protection for their corporate-issued MokaFive "LivePC" virtual desktops. With this partnership, AVG is now extending its leadership in endpoint security to both physical and virtual machines.

"Virtual desktops are the future, and AVG strives to be at the forefront in providing integrated security solutions for users," said JR Smith, President and CEO of AVG Technologies. "As the world's leading provider of consumer security tools, we are pleased to partner with MokaFive to protect the security of virtual desktops as these become the de facto end-user computing environment."

"MokaFive is continuing its lead in virtual desktop management by extending the security perimeter of the enterprise to users' personal machines," said Dale Fuller, MokaFive CEO. "With the addition of AVG's award-winning anti-virus, MokaFive enables corporations to offer flexible work from home and BYOC initiatives without compromising security."
