Zero Clients and Healthcare

Posted by Katie Callahan on Apr 17, 2018 11:23:58 AM

Our Virtual End Points Fit in Anywhere

NCS Technologies offers a broad portfolio of virtual end point solutions for any healthcare environment - notebooks, desktops and a portable WiFi-enabled desktop perfect for a Workstation on Wheels. In many healthcare facilities you will find NCS virtual computing solutions rolling down aisles, tucked into carts, sitting on nursing station desktops, on meeting room tables and in entry area kiosks. We particularly are in demand where mobility and portability are prized.

Let's learn more about the NCS healthcare portfolio!

NCS, VMware & Teradici

The NCS virtualized zero client portfolio is managed by VMware and is powered by PCoIP technology for Teradici.

Zero Client Notebooks and Healthcare

NCS offers two zero client notebooks, the Cirrus LT and the Cirrus LT Plus. The Cirrus LT offers a 14-inch display, optional WiFi, a CAC reader and fingerprint reader options and an optional docking station. The Cirrus LT Plus has a 15.6-inch display, full numeric keyboard, and two 6-cell hot swappable batteries.  The options are numerous, including webcam, 4G LTE, WiFi, fingerprint reader, CAC reader, proximity card reader and docking station.

In a hospital, you can find these notebooks wherever mobility is prized, such as in a conference room for a meeting, carried to a bedside by a doctor and at work at a nursing station.

Zero Client Desktops

The star of our desktop portfolio is our Cirrus DT WiFi, which is known for its portability, manageability and strong security. The compact DT WiFi often can be found coupled to a Workstation of Wheels because of its strong networking capabilities in aisles, down long corridors and in patient rooms. At the desktop NCS also offers traditional virtualization solutions. The Cirrus TZ-202L and the Cirrus DT 5220 support dual display needs, while the Cirrus TZ-204L supports up to four displays. 

NCS Partners with Ergotron - and WOW

We already noted that the portable DT WiFi couples nicely with a Workstation on Wheels. NCS has partnered with Ergotron StyleView to deliver a mobile networking solution that is designed for enhanced workflow and superior caregiving.

Teradici All Access Solution

As also mentioned, many NCS VDI solutions are based on Teradici's PCoIP virtualization technology. With Teradici's All Access plans, you get a complete set of remote access solutions, enabling lower IT costs and reduced admin time while giving users maximum flexibility. All Access securely delivers workspaces and applications from the cloud or datacenter, as needed. Existing applications can easily be migrated, mobilizing your creative teams and leveraging the power of GPUs in the cloud.

HP t420 and t530 Desktop Thin Clients

NCS also offers two thin clients for those applications where the IT environment relies on multiple protocols such as Teradici's PCoIP, Citrix HDX or VMware Blast Extreme.  Our close partnership with HP in this case broadens our own product portfolio with additional small form factor, low-cost desktop and mobile devices. The HP t420 supports dual displays (VGA and DVI) and features 4 USB ports, WiFi and RJ45 networking connectivity. The HP t530 supports two displays via 2 DisplayPort outputs and features 6 USB ports, WiFi and RJ45 networking connectivity.

Government Prefers SecureView

Posted by Katie Callahan on Apr 12, 2018 11:22:27 AM

The Preferred Way to Protect Government Data

Citizens, security vendors and agencies are in agreement that protecting sensitive data is a must. But it is a continuing challenge, with the definition of success constantly changing. As a recent report from Deloitte noted, the challenge of implementing effective government cyber security is an "obstacle to long-awaited digital transformation".  The security vendor Thales notes that "external threats are becoming more menacing and sophisticated".

The topic itself is extremely complex, including protecting databases and servers in data centers, locking down endpoints (like laptops and notebooks), and educating employees about everyday social engineering threats (clicking on destructive malware on a website or answering a malicious email).

In addition, government workers must be mindful about how secure their everyday network communications are. To keep communications private and secure, government workers access various levels of secure networks.

Examples of protected information networks include NIPRNet (private IP network), SIPRNet (classified), and JWICS (top secret). 

Government and military workers often use virtualization tools at the endpoint to most best access these networks. Today, the preferred virtualization tool is SecureView, developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and implemented by NCS Technologies.
