InstallFree Gains 2009 Market Momentum and Expands Partner Channel

InstallFree Continues in Top Analyst Rankings for Application Virtualization Solutions, Attracts Top-Tier Technology Partners BMC, Amazon Web Services, BigFix, and Leads in Win 7 Support

STAMFORD, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 12/16/09 -- InstallFree, Inc., developer of platform application virtualization solutions for enterprise desktop environments, today announced it is closing the year with strong market share in North America. In 2009, the company achieved strong sales in healthcare and education, expansion of both its technology alliance and solution partners and widened its sales channel in North America and EMEA.

InstallFree continues to rank high in recent analyst reports, including application and desktop virtualization market forecasts and surveys from Forrester, Gartner, IDC, the451, and FOCUS.

"2009 marked strong growth for InstallFree, and we are keeping market share and accelerating momentum with our technical approach to application virtualization solutions," said Yori Gabay, CEO at InstallFree. "With these gains, and the support of our partners, InstallFree is poised to go to the next level in 2010. We anticipate significant product and technology announcements in the first quarter, and continued technology advancement for our customers in the coming year."

InstallFree's growing reputation for advancing application virtualization technology across multiple platforms continues to drive customer adoption. Inroads in the education and healthcare IT markets have grown, enabling central management and delivery of virtualization applications to multiple locations, while maintaining compliance and privacy regulations.

The InstallFree 2009 growth strategy anticipated the impact of Windows 7 for organizations.

"OS migration, especially to Windows 7, which will force a complete re-install for many enterprises, opens a brief window of opportunity for application virtualization to deliver not just immediate benefits, but also long-term strategic value for endpoint management," said Andi Mann, analyst at Enterprise Management Associates. "By separating applications and settings from the OS, IT can manage any endpoint as a generic device, with applications and settings determined by user credentials, rather than physical location. This is a game-changing shift in the approach to endpoint management and, coupled with the benefits for OS migration, poses an immediate opportunity for broad improvement that will not be repeated for at least the lifecycle of the OS."

In recent months, InstallFree added significant partners continuing its market direction of enabling partners across the IT infrastructure ecosystem who are leveraging application virtualization to sustain competitive advantage for their enterprise computing solutions.
