    Name of Company is Computers In Motion http://www.computersinmotion.com Note: We have not added this product to our website since we have not publically announced product. We will have new website design and this new product (SafePods) added with all the product information within 2 weeks.

    Currently we are seeking Alpha testing volunteers for a new virtual security product designed for IE but will support all browsers and eventually all desktop applications. Alpha install will be available that will virtualize IE only. Alpha install will be available on or about 2/20 and if interested please send me a reply. We are only looking for a handful of individuals and companies. Upon GA those participated will acquire GA production copy free. Please send me a PM if your are interested or have additional questions.

    Basically, this new virtualization security product was designed in protecting the IE Browser from security breaches such as malware, viruses,
    or spyware penetrating the web browser. Product will ultimately support all browsers and eventually desktop applications. This technology differs from VMWare in that we do not virtualize the entire OS just the web browser and eventually the desktop applications.

    System requirememts: Windows XP, 2000, or 2003. Around 100MB should be free on the HD,
    Additional Support: X64 support will follow in a few months.
    Note: This product provides application level imaging and virtualization.

    The basic architecture flow is as follows:

    - A SafePods application image is created by initiating a web application install through SafePods.
    - All file system and registry changes, service details, and COM registration is redirected into the image file.
    - SafePods maintains a configurable namespace that allows the user to control which SafePods web applications can interact with each other.
    - The Virtual NIC allows the user to configure how a web application or set of web applications will interact with the network. The user will be able to configure a set of web applications to share an IP or have each with its own.
    - Related to how IP addresses work, the web application image itself can be configured to use the local system name or to use a specified default. -- The system name can also be specified at runtime. This configuration allows distributed web applications to be configured and deployed easily.
    - The SafePods Service Manager provides Service Management redirection such that any services created through an install will not be directly advertised through the base system, but will still maintain all service management capabilities that will simply be accessed through the SafePods console.
    - SafePods installed web applications also will have any start menu or desktop changes redirected such that they will be available under the “SafePods Web Applications” folder.
    - The SafePods web application Images will themselves be optionally run able where either the SafePods console will launch providing the ability to run or configure the web application, or it will be launch able with command line options controlling which executable to launch within the image as well as namespace and other optional information.





    Thanks,
    Rick

    Hi,
    What are the system requirements?
    What possible incompatibilities are you aware of? What about 64-bit processors and 64-bit OS?
    Could you point to a homepage, give us an intro about yourself?
    Are you saying your virtualization is in fact single-app sandboxing, a-la DropMyRights + IE, or Sandboxie + IE or DefenseWall with IE as untrusted?
