The official press release:

PARC Spins Out PowerCloud Systems, Offers Innovation in Cloud-Managed Networking

Experienced Executive Team Leads, Top Venture Capitalist Firms Back New Company

PARC (Palo Alto Research Center Incorporated), a premier center for commercial innovation, and PowerCloud™ Systems, Inc. today announced the spin-out of PowerCloud Systems, which has been incubated at PARC since early 2008 and is initially focusing on offering cloud-managed networking solutions for small and medium-sized businesses. Walden Venture Capital and Javelin Venture Partners are joining PARC as investors in the company.

PowerCloud Systems invents and engineers cloud-based technology for OEM vendors that makes business networking devices dramatically easier to deploy, secure, and manage — all at an unprecedented low cost. The company builds on intellectual property developed at PARC, including two exclusive and eight shared patents in areas ranging from cloud-virtualized network controllers to “usable security.” Usable security marries PARC’s technological expertise about security with the behavioral realities of how people manage security in various contexts of use.
