The Sixth Flag Named a 2016 Gartner Cool Vendor in Endpoint Computing

RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - May 18, 2016) - The Sixth Flag, Inc. announced today that the company has been included in the "Cool Vendors in Endpoint Computing, 2016" report by Gartner. This report examines innovators in endpoint computing. Companies recognized in the report were selected because their technologies or solutions are innovative, impactful and intriguing.

Each year, Gartner identifies new "Cool Vendors" in key technology areas. Cool Vendors are reviewed in a series of research reports evaluating their products and services. The Sixth Flag was specifically recognized for its Desktop-as-a-Service as a true cloud- based solution. The Gartner report states "products that require no special software on the endpoint and are OS-neutral are especially better in that they can enable CYOD and BYOD -- and effectively allow users to pick the device of their choice." By using standard web browsers, The Sixth Flag (TSF) actively supports growing organizational mandates for BYOD. Furthermore, TSF's patent-pending watermarking technology known as dewdrop.tsf offers strong protection for organizations concerned about the loss of intellectual property.

"We are honored to be selected by Gartner as a 2016 Cool Vendor for Endpoint Computing. We believe it validates our vision of delivering a true cloud orchestrated and delivered Desktop-as-a-Service," said Pete Kofod, Founder and CEO of The Sixth Flag. "We will continue to raise the bar by adding groundbreaking capabilities to our offering, extending a solution that is simple, secure, easy to manage and that won't break the bank."

The ability to securely deliver Windows™-based applications to a distributed and dynamic work force continues to challenge technology leaders. According to Gartner, technology leaders should "plan to provide Win32 applications virtually or remotely in a container to users, or as part of DaaS to enable more agile management and diversity for user endpoint devices." Pete Kofod agrees with this assertion and states, "The ability to confidently and securely deliver legacy applications to remote users is a recurring problem facing our customers."

Gartner points out, "Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) is maturing; I&O leaders can now run DaaS in HTML5 browsers without additional software and there are now options to purchase short-term DaaS services leveraging pay per use and accelerated speed of deployment for temporary or seasonal needs." From its inception, The Sixth Flag has recognized this need. Darren Witmer, Vice President of Business Strategy, concurs. "We are seeing requests for short term and dynamic pricing in DaaS solicitations, particularly from mid-market and enterprise customers. We believe that The Sixth Flag is uniquely well suited to meet such demands."

Since its debut, The Sixth Flag has been transforming DaaS with its award-winning solution. Easy to integrate and deploy, the company's clients have reported great results in delivering legacy applications to remote users where uncompromised performance, global availability and ground-breaking security is paramount.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
