10 Hot Emerging Vendors For April 2012


MokaFive

Company: MokaFive

Tech Sector: Virtualization
Key Product: Desktop Management

MokaFive's technology enables businesses to choose their hardware -- Mac or Windows PC -- and deploy a single employee desktop. The Redwood City, Calif.-based company installs the same virtual machine on each desktop or laptop in order to run a master image. Patches and upgrades are handled remotely through a central console, eliminating the need for individual configuration.

In addition, the company's technology provides security and the ability to wipe data from a lost or stolen laptop. MokaFive also sells its technology for Windows 7 migrations. By encapsulating a Windows 7 build into a MokaFive virtual desktop, IT staff can remotely deploy the operating system. If needed, employees can run legacy XP applications on the host environment.
