Amongst number of vendors offering the solution for Virtualization security, one name MokaFive is proving itself. Their unique format for creating virtual machines is called LivePC which updates dynamically, works from anywhere, and starts up in an instant. Try MokaFive to centrally manage the entire lifecycle of your users' virtual desktops making it easy to create, deliver, secure, update, and control the virtual desktop.

And for those with even higher security demands, try their BareMetal. This customized Linux distribution runs on bare computer h/w without an underlying OS, making it optimal for security-critical applications. And since it allows you to work on a Linux-based system, you can save on the cost of multiple Windows licenses. See how people are using it at:
