    AUSTIN, Texas, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearCube Technology announces the
 USB C/Port, a cutting edge enhancement to its highly-acclaimed C3 Architecture
 for networked enterprise computing.  The C3 Architecture revolutionizes
 desktop management by centralizing computing assets while delivering full PC
 functionality to the desktop.  The new USB C/Port delivers complete USB
 functionality to the desktop from the CPU Blade, a computer that is located up
 to 200 meters away in the data center.  The USB C/Port is ideal for clients
 wanting to provide their users with the greatest amount of flexibility without
 sacrificing network security.
     "Today's cost conscious corporate PC buyers are more likely than ever to
 entertain alternatives to networked computing that promise to increase
 manageability and cut costs," said IDC analyst Roger Kay."
     The USB C/Port delivers four USB ports to the desktop while giving IT
 managers control over what devices can be connected for security.  Standard
 USB compliant devices connect easily to the C/Port's four ports including:
 keyboards, mice, audio and video devices, printers, scanners, mass-storage and
 hundreds of other devices.  A standard VGA port supports CRT and LCD monitors.
 Because a variety of peripherals can be connected, the USB C/Port is ideal for
 clients who desire user flexibility.  Security - a key benefit of the C3
 Architecture - is not sacrificed, since peripherals are managed through both
 an operating system policy and a unique hardware lock that can prevent desktop
 connection to any mass-storage media.  The hardware lock is configured via a
 jumper on the centralized CPU Blade, which is locked away in a separate and
 secure location.
     "The USB C/Port is an important step in the evolution of the C3
 Architecture," said Mike Frost President and CEO of ClearCube Technology.
 "The ability to offer I/O to the desktop is an important customer requirement,
 equally as important was maintaining high levels of security. Our USB C/Port
 accomplished both."
     The USB C/Port augments the ClearCube C3 Architecture -- a managed
 solution that enables unparalleled security and uptime advantages with the
 performance and user experience of a managed PC.  This innovative approach
 centralizes computing assets into the data center and delivers the full PC
 functionality to the desktop over standard Category 5 cable up to 200 meters
 away.
