Citrix Systems invests in Gizmox

Gizmox, a developer of Visual WebGui (VWG) web, cloud and
mobile delivery platform, announced it has received a strategic investment from
Citrix Systems.

As part of the investment, Gizmox and Citrix are working
together to enable enterprises to deliver existing and new applications to the
rapidly expanding set of HTML5-enabled devices. This will drive further innovation in delivering applications to any
device, anywhere.

VWG technology enables data-centric enterprise
applications to run on HTML5 Web, Cloud and Mobile platforms as
secured-by-design rich applications without plug-ins.

In 3 years, Visual WebGui has
more than 1,000,000 downloads of its software and over 35,000 VWG applications
that are already in production, at first tier organizations such as SAP, IBM,
Visa, Thomson Reuters, Shell, Texas Instruments, Good Year and major banks,
medical, government and military institutions.

“With the proliferation of consumer devices from
tablets and Smartphones to unique web-optimized devices like Google
ChromeBooks, users are demanding to bring these devices into the workplace. Our
vision is to provide enterprises with the virtual computing infrastructure
needed to provide anywhere, anytime access to corporate resources,” said Martin
Duursma, vice president, Citrix Labs and CTO Office chair at Citrix.

We found Visual WebGui technology to be an innovative
and exciting extension of this vision. Our strategic investment in Gizmox is
aimed at advancing technology to better address emerging enterprise HTML5-based
web, cloud and mobile needs,” said Duursma added.

“We are very excited to be working with Citrix.
Citrix is an industry leader in virtual computing technology and its solutions
are enabling the consumerization of IT to become a reality for thousands of
enterprises and millions of users around the world,” said Navot Peled, CEO,

The two companies have a shared vision for delivering
applications to any device, including HTML5-based devices. Our combined efforts
will help advance technology to support cloud computing and mobile
devices,” Peled added.
