Moka5's Enterprise AnyWare Looks to the Cloud
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
the leading provider of next generation end-user computing solutions,
today announced new cloud enhancements to its core infrastructure - Moka5
Enterprise AnyWare - enabling the widest range of deployment options
for secure, client-side container management: on-premises (on-prem),
cloud, or anywhere in between.
"While there's been a lot of discussion about cloud computing and its
impact on enterprise IT, most enterprise organizations aren't ready for
cloud-only infrastructure management," said Dave Robbins, CEO of Moka5.
"IT needs a flexible, intelligent architecture for container management
that enables them to deploy wherever they need based on their
requirements. These new enhancements to the Enterprise AnyWare platform
enable us to support on-premises only, cloud-only, or a combination of
the two. Only Moka5, with its container-based architecture, is designed
from the ground up to meet the challenging requirements of enterprise
client management including distributing Windows and applications to
users all over the world. We're proud to say that these enhancements are
the first of many you'll be hearing from us over the course of the next
Today's Enterprise IT organization has to manage technology diversity in
ways unimaginable just five years ago - multiple clients (PCs, Macs,
tablets, smartphones), heterogeneous workforce (salaried, contractor),
multiple operating contexts (local, remote, mobile), for both corporate
and personal assets. Moka5 Enterprise AnyWare delivers the core end-user
computing management and security functions IT needs for today's highly
dynamic and mobile computing landscape via a unified and distributed
architecture centrally managed by a common console. Moreover, Moka5
delivers the performance, productivity, and privacy that end-users
demand, even in low-to-no bandwidth environments and regardless of
device ownership status.
For example, support for Amazon S3 replicas enables customers to keep
their management infrastructure on-premises, while using Amazon S3 to
store and distribute corporate workspaces out to employees and
contractors. With this approach, an enterprise with a preference for the
control that on-prem provides can keep their management server and
database local, while using the cloud to help with geographical reach
issues. Meanwhile, automation of new tenant creation and configuration
enables service providers to deliver Moka5 as a managed, hosted service
in a more cost-efficient way. And, our Active Directoy Extender enables
enterprises to host Moka5 infrastructure in the cloud, while still
leveraging existing on-premises investments (in this case, their
existing AD deployment). Customers don't have to set up Active Directory
in the cloud in order to realize the benefits of cloud deployment.
In addition to the specific technology enhancements, Moka5 is also
announcing a new partnership with ControlFusion,
which is focused on deploying, managing, and optimizing Moka5 as a fully
hosted, managed cloud-based service. ControlFusion joins existing
in Canada, and BizCarta,
at the forefront of cloud-based IT infrastructure management.
"We're excited about our growing partnership with Moka5 and the
continued enhancements to the multi-tenant platform for service
providers," said Dan Atkinson, CEO of ControlFusion. "Our cloud-based
Moka5 offering makes it easy for our clients to test the platform and
quickly move into production before making a significant financial
Moka5 Enterprise AnyWare: Benefits in the Cloud and Beyond
Flexibility - Realistically most companies are not yet hosting their IT
infrastructure in the cloud, but many will want to transition or use a
hybrid model that includes on-prem and cloud. Using Enterprise AnyWare,
IT can now allocate client management resources between cloud and data
center as needed - whether for performance, cost reduction, or to
simplify management of any device requiring access to sensitive
corporate information over any network.
Manageability - Enterprise AnyWare with cloud support enables IT to
bring large estates of assets under management quickly without increased
overhead in their data centers or overlaying additional infrastructure
on top of their existing management systems.
User Experience - Enterprise AnyWare is the ultimate platform
architecture for today's enterprise client computing providing
comprehensive container management for the broadest cross section of use
cases. Only Moka5 keeps Enterprise data safe and employees productive
even without network connectivity.
Security - Infrastructure must be secure no matter where it is
installed. Enterprise AnyWare separates and encrypts communications to
the secure containers (policy changes, software updates, security
patches) from the business traffic that takes place inside the
container. Regular business traffic utilizes the organization's existing
security capabilities, such as a VPN and never puts an untrusted host
computer on the network.
Installed in some of the most demanding IT environments worldwide, Moka5
is solving critical challenges for BYOD/PC, CYOD/PC, contractor
management, mobile workforce management, simplified endpoint management
and cybersecurity initiatives.
Clifford Chance, one of the largest international law firms, has
deployed Moka5 to over two hundred employees, providing them access to
any information they need from their personal laptops, from anywhere,
without having to take special steps to secure that information
themselves. The feedback regularly received regarding this deployment,
"Simply love it. " To find more details about how Clifford Chance and
