VMware View 4.6 Delivers Enhanced Remote Access With VMware View Security Server Support for PCoIP

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - February 28, 2011) - VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced the general availability of VMware View™ 4.6 with enhanced remote access via VMware View Security Server support for PCoIP.

VMware View Security Server support for PCoIP allows for a simple, secure remote connection and authentication to a user's desktop by removing the requirement for enterprise-class SSL VPNs -- providing customers with greater choice when initiating end-to-end PCoIP protocol session. The result is a tightly integrated and cost-effective desktop virtualization deployment that provides for easy authentication of remote users.

"The release of VMware View™ 4.6 with PCoIP support for VMware View Security Server provides a simple and secure way for users to access their VMware View desktops remotely, while taking advantage of a superior PCoIP experience," said Raj Mallempati, director, End-User Computing Products for VMware. "When you combine VMware View Security Server with View's wide range of supported end-point and mobility options, VMware View 4.6 provides the best of both worlds -- End-user freedom, IT control."

VMware View™ is a complete, virtual desktop solution that enables enterprises to improve security and lower operating costs, while simplifying desktop administration and management by establishing a modern, end-user computing architecture. VMware's End-User Computing vision seeks to free users and IT from more than two decades of complex, device-centric computing and deliver a more consumer-focused cloud experience for the enterprise.
