New Wyse Mobile Cloud App Helps Enterprises and Consumers Build Their Own Cloud, Delivering the First Personal Cloud App

The New App Virtually Connects Existing Content, Files, Storage, and Devices in the Cloud for Pennies -- Saving Hundreds of Dollars a Year Compared to Expensive, Unreliable and Unsecure Public Cloud Storage

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 21, 2011) - Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, has introduced new software that changes the way consumers access data across devices with the launch of Wyse PocketCloud 2.2, a new way to connect existing devices and personal hard drive space to create the most secure and inexpensive cloud solution on the market.

Wyse PocketCloud utilizes customers' existing storage on their Mac, PC and virtual desktops rather than storing files on third-party servers, providing a less expensive and more secure peer-to-peer experience. Wyse's personal cloud is approximately 88% less than traditional cloud services, at only $1 per month to access all of your storage.

"Many users do not want to spend an increasing amount of money to store files on a public cloud service when they already have everything they need securely on their own computer systems," said Daniel Barreto, general manager of the mobile cloud business unit at Wyse Technology. "This first installment of our personal cloud vision enables users to take advantage of the very large, ultra low cost storage they already own without concern for whether they have enough cloud space and when they'll have to start paying higher monthly fees or remove files."

With other services once a user's files are uploaded to the cloud, control of the privacy and security of this data becomes the responsibility of a third party. Over the last year, some of the most popular Web services have experienced failures that exposed private customer data to the public, or downtime preventing any access at all. Wyse provides secure remote access to files securely stored on users' devices. Additionally, many cloud storage services only allow users to upload certain file types such as music and documents. Wyse PocketCloud does not limit either the number or type of files that can be shared between personal devices. Wyse PocketCloud forges ahead of space constrained and costly cloud storage services, allowing users to not only access files on the go, but also run the Mac and Windows applications that they already know and love.

With over 1.5 million copies downloaded, Wyse PocketCloud complements Wyse's line of cloud client computing software and hardware, making access to the cloud and VDI environments easy, secure, and low cost across desktop, mobile, and handheld devices.

In addition to popular features like full remote control of Mac, Windows or virtual desktops, and secure access to enterprise servers and data, other new features of Wyse PocketCloud / PocketCloud Pro 2.2 include:

  • Passcode lock option for additional security
