InstallFree Showcases New Technology and Global Channel Partners at VMworld Europe 2009

InstallFree Award-Winning Technology Bridges the GAP Between Reality and Vision With Hybrid Approach to Universal Clients

CANNES, FRANCE--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - VMworld Europe -- InstallFree, Inc., developer of platform solutions for virtualization of enterprise applications and desktop environments, today announced its participation at VMworld Europe 2009, taking place February 24-26 at The Palais des Festivals in Cannes. The company's InstallFree Bridge product, honored with the Best of VMworld 2008 Gold Award for Desktop Virtualization, has expanded technical features and functions, including self-provisioning, to provide end users with a high level of flexibility while working on locked down machines. The company also announced the addition of global channel and solution partners who will join in product demonstrations and discussions at the InstallFree Booth 86.

"InstallFree has taken a 'hybrid approach' to application virtualization. We created technology capable of virtualizing applications for delivery and operation without conflict in the end point environment, but most importantly, it also seamlessly integrates with backend systems for ease of management and assurance of business and regulatory compliance," said Yori Gabay, CEO of InstallFree. "We started with the clear idea to address production realities, and now are proud to have the industry's most advanced technology to achieve universal clients by bridging the gaps between the cloud, server-based computing and physical desktops. Designed for Users and Built for IT, InstallFree delivers a solution that provides a 'Locked Down' PC for IT and 'Freedom of Use' for the PC user."

Universal clients deliver a rich application experience that can follow the user regardless of the device or delivery medium, while maintaining required balance to minimize business, regulatory, and security risks. InstallFree's hybrid approach to application virtualization creates a holistic solution for desktop users by combining local and server compute power, granular control and dynamic binding of user, and machine and application configurations. This provides the ultimate end user and IT experience -- allowing the multiple levels of control needed for the business along with the flexibility of choice for the user.

InstallFree continues to announce new capabilities that improve the efficiency and efficacy of IT organizations. Using the latest InstallFree Bridge, IT administrators can define virtual applications, virtual applications containers, or virtual applications dependencies as available for self-provisioning. End users can then use the Bridge self-provisioning portal to gain access to these virtual applications. Self-provisioning is a benefit in many scenarios, i.e., free or volume license applications such as instant messaging, that do not require tight control by IT administrators. Users can self-provision add-ons for applications like Microsoft Office, which has dozens of add-ons for users to choose from. InstallFree provides the flexibility for IT to do what makes strategic and economic sense -- centrally and locally.

The newest InstallFree Encapsulator incorporates a number of new tools, available through a unified UI as a single executable that provides a launch pad for creating virtual Applications On Demand (AOD). For example, administrators can launch and test newly created AOD files or edit and modify existing AOD files.

InstallFree is changing the fundamental economics of software delivery and use. For the first time, enterprises can have the best of both worlds -- centralized IT management of applications with completely transparent, decentralized use of those applications by the individual PC user. True roaming of desktops is achievable. Applications can be run without having to install them, and conflicts are resolved. InstallFree delivers the cost saving, service performance and productivity to support the operations of business with the flexibility the times demand.
