Wyse Solidifies Its Leadership in Mobile Cloud App Market, Capitalizing on Growing Mobile Enterprise Market in the Post-PC Era

Wyse PocketCloud Pro for Android Volume Purchase Program, New Connectivity and Security Options, and a New Mobile Device Management Partnership Continue to Make Wyse the Best Choice for Large Scale Enterprise Mobile Cloud Deployments

SAN JOSE, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, is responding to unprecedented enterprise demand for its award-winning Wyse PocketCloud Pro for Android mobile cloud software by making available volume purchases of it through Wyse sales channels. Business, government, and education institutions will now be able to purchase and easily manage Wyse PocketCloud Pro for their entire workforce with Android devices, providing access to all computing resources from anywhere over 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi.

Volume purchases of Wyse PocketCloud include beta support for Microsoft RD Gateway bringing yet another connectivity option and higher level security, and enterprise management and security for mobile devices and apps are streamlined through a partnership with MobileIron. Premium technical support options and ease of deployment underscore Wyse PocketCloud Pro as the best mobile cloud app for large-scale deployments.

Wyse PocketCloud Pro is the top rated mobile cloud business app on Android, allowing any smartphone or tablet to remotely access personal and corporate desktop profiles. Beyond simply remotely creating, editing and sharing files stored on a computer, users can also use all their applications and network resources from the palm of their hand.

"Android devices have gained tremendous market share and our volume purchasing program along with enterprise features and partnerships position Wyse to take advantage of huge opportunities in the enterprise space," said Daniel Barreto, general manager of the mobile cloud business unit at Wyse Technology. "Managing multiple mobile devices in the enterprise setting has long been one of the IT department's worst nightmares, but our new purchasing option coupled with mobile device management and security bring the highest quality remote desktop experience without the hassle of having to install and manage devices individually."

MobileIron helps global companies support multiple operating systems at scale, secure enterprise data on mobile devices, and build and deliver mobile apps. Demand is accelerating for Wyse PocketCloud on Apple's iOS and Google's Android devices as enterprise environments continue to embrace the power of the mobile cloud, and the partnership with MobileIron introduces turnkey mobile management and security technology to Wyse customers.

"Wyse customers who deploy Wyse PocketCloud for their IT and mobile business need the ability to manage a range of apps and devices while maintaining security standards, and the partnership with MobileIron ensures that they can," said Bob Tinker, CEO, MobileIron. "Enterprise mobility is exploding and the demand for mobile device management and mobile cloud computing is following quickly behind. The Wyse team has a great track record with enterprise customers and we are pleased to be working with them."

Volume license agreements are a great solution for companies looking to install, configure and manage 100 or more Android devices without having to separately buy and download each license and set up each device individually. Businesses can configure a profile for all devices and simply share it with employees for immediate access to virtual or cloud desktops, RDP, VNC or VMware View resources.

"At iLand we are always looking for innovative ways to add flexibility to our workforce without sacrificing the productivity that has made us a leader in cloud computing infrastructure," said Justin Giardina chief technology officer at iLand. "The volume purchase program gives our IT department the freedom to quickly and easily access, monitor and manage our computer system from anywhere on our Android phones and tablets."

Microsoft RD Gateway is part of the Remote Desktop Services included with Windows Server® 2008 R2. The class-leading, high performance RDP support in Wyse PocketCloud allows users to securely connect through it to resources on an internal corporate or private network.

So far in 2011, Wyse PocketCloud has received an Appy for Best Productivity App, Mobile Merit Award for Best Enterprise App and Wyse PocketCloud Pro was named the best remote desktop app on Android tablets by PCWorld in a head-to-head comparison with other Android tablet apps. With consistently high app store rankings in the Android and iOS markets and over 1 and ½ million downloads to date, Wyse PocketCloud has proven its ability to provide substantive value to enterprise and mainstream consumers alike with class-leading security, flexible connection options and high performance remote desktop access technology.
