Virtual Computer has made a breakthrough in desktop virtualization that radically expands the capabilities of PCs while slashing management costs. Virtual Computer offers the only desktop virtualization solution to combine a type-1 client hypervisor with an integrated centralized management system. It delivers full control over PCs to IT and new productivity advantages to users -- like fast booting to access the web and running multiple personalities (e.g., corporate and personal) on a single machine.

Virtual Computer was carefully selected by the Red Herring editorial team after being judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to, technology innovation, financial performance, revenue growth, management's execution standards, globalization of the strategy, and market share growth. The winners of this esteemed award have demonstrated the most innovative technologies and business models originating from more than 1,000 companies across nearly 50 nations.

"Technology companies are becoming the bright spot in the economic outlook based on their increasing role within macro-economic environments," stated Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. "2011 has confirmed the sector's vibrant activity and its resilience to widespread economic problems. Virtual Computer has performed exceptionally in its field and strongly deserves to be singled out as one of the Red Herring Global Finalists."
