Red Bend Software, the market leader in Mobile Software Management (MSM) with more than 1.5 billion Red Bend-Enabled™ devices, today announced the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted the company patent number 8,201,170. The patented technology, which is used in Red Bend’s vLogix Mobile™ for Mobile Virtualization, enables multiple operating systems with different priority levels to run concurrently on a single device.
This fifth granted patent joins Red Bend’s virtualization patent portfolio that covers many aspects of Mobile Virtualization. Mobile phone and connected device manufacturers are increasingly adopting Mobile Virtualization in order to speed time to market, reduce costs and increase security. With Red Bend’s vLogix Mobile, mobile device manufacturers can securely and efficiently create and separate a personal domain and a work domain on an employee’s smartphone or tablet. In addition, automotive system manufacturers can isolate critical safety systems from the in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system when using a single hardware platform.
