Wyse has reached the 250,000-user milestone across Android and iOS devices. To celebrate this milestone, Wyse simultaneously launched PocketCloud 1.1, which is already available in the Android Market. Boasting industry-leading security, improved performance, and tablet optimization, Wyse is positioning PocketCloud 1.1 to be your one and only remote desktop app for your Android tablet or wireless handset.
Available in the Android market as a free or paid ($14.99) app, PocketCloud offers something for everybody. Enterprise users will appreciate its NLA (Network Level Authentication) security, while the casual remote desktoper (that's a term now) will probably be suited perfectly with the free version.
