Wyse Wins Everything Channel's CRN Magazine as One of the Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2012) - Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, has been named one of the 20 Coolest Cloud Software Vendors for 2012 by Everything Channel's CRN. For the second year in a row, Wyse has been named as a cool cloud vendor for its portfolio of thin, zero and cloud PC client solutions coupled with its infrastructure management, desktop virtualization and cloud software to support desktops, laptops and mobile devices. The comprehensive list highlights the most innovative cloud vendors and solutions for the channel -- including storage cloud offerings, security cloud offerings, cloud apps, cloud infrastructure and cloud platforms to assist solution providers in navigating the cloud phenomena successfully.

"This year's Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list is based on a cloud vendor's approach to creating an innovative product, or an innovative approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel," said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director CRN. "Specifically, these Cloud vendors help resellers transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging cloud computing has to offer."

CRN highlighted Wyse's leadership as many organizations and consumers embrace the cloud and mobile devices. Since last year, Wyse purchased Trellia and introduced the new Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) software suite to deliver mobile device management from the cloud. As Wyse's flagship SaaS management offering, Wyse EMM offers comprehensive capabilities for managing devices and applications and further improves safety and cost control in cloud-based and mobile infrastructures. Project Stratus will provide IT administrators with an intelligent and dynamic cloud-based console to securely manage and enable corporate access to any device, including smartphones, tablets, thin clients, zero clients, and PCs -- regardless if that device is owned by the company or by the individual.

Wyse also introduced Wyse PocketCloud Explore and Wyse PocketCloud Web where people create their own personal cloud and can easily search, view, edit, organize, and share content on their remote computers from Android and Apple mobile devices. Wyse PocketCloud Explore and Web come on the heels of Wyse's successful Wyse PocketCloud remote desktop app that has been downloaded millions of times.

"Wyse envisions a world where consumers and organizations aren't bound by any software or hardware limitations. In the past 12 months, Wyse has continued to innovate and introduce new products and services that provide users to move to the cloud with the flexibility, control, security and ease of manageability regardless of what device they are using," said Jeff McNaught, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer.

A sample of the list can be viewed in the March 28th issue of CRN.
