Investment to support emerging enterprise rich internet, cloud and mobile needs

Gizmox, the developer of the award-winning Visual WebGui (VWG) web, cloud and mobile delivery platform, has announced that 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.

"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. 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 Martin Duursma, vice president, Citrix Labs and CTO Office chair at Citrix.
