Virtual Bridges Announces New VERDE Release

Virtual Bridges, and IBM partner and developer of the VERDE suite for desktop virtualization, has announced the availability of VERDE 4.2. Introduced in less than 3 months since the release of VERDE 4, the company says that the new version's capabilities underscore the company's commitment to meet market needs through rapid innovation.

New VERDE 4.2 functionality includes capabilities provided by iVERDE. Built on the open source iDesktop client, iVERDE allows iPad and iPhone users to access VERDE Windows 7, Windows XP and Linux desktops. iVERDE is fully integrated with the VERDE distributed connection broker and user console, providing a user experience identical to any other VERDE client. iVERDE has been contributed to the open source community under the GPL license, and is available through Apple's AppsStore.

Enhanced security in VERDE 4.2 offers customers the ability to use industry-standard, two-factor authentication technologies, including RSA SecureID, Safeword and other RADIUS-based solutions to secure virtual desktop sessions.

And, with this new release, customers can personalize the VERDE Off-line VDI Type 1 client side hypervisor, LEAF (Live Environment Access Format), with specific branding and custom login scripts. This allows customers to personalize the login experience for end users using the VERDE client-side hypervisor. Virtual Bridges provides an integrated VDI and offline VDI (client side hypervisor) experience that works from the same gold image. VERDE LEAF also features bi-directional data synchronization that allows users to have a consistent environment whether accessing from VDI or offline VDI.
