OK Labs is a provider of virtualization software for securing wireless communications, applications and content for mobile devices. It is also involved with in-vehicle infotainment systems.

"Government and corporate CIOs want the advantages of today's commercial mobile devices without having to sacrifice the integrity and security of their networks," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.
