Posted by Katie Callahan on Feb 21, 2017 11:28:39 AM

Strong Interest in Solutions at NCS Booth #5644

For many, President's Day created a long holiday weekend. But for the folks in Orlando, today is Day Two of HIMSS17, the year's largest and most influential Health IT conference. NCS is showcasing a broad technology portfolio at our booth, with a strong emphasis on virtualization.

NCS is one of the industry's leading innovators in the virtualization space, and NCS is well known for its zero client virtual end points. Over the past few years we have educated IT administrators that implementing zero clients helps improve overall IT manageability and delivers strong security right to the desktop - where it is needed most.

Please stop by our booth and say hello to our staff who will be in the area. Linda, Matt, Mike and others will be happy to demonstrate our zero client computing portfolio and our Workstation on Wheels (WOW) solution.

NCS Booth #1235

Co-sponsored by AFCEA International and U.S. Naval Institute, WEST 2017 is the premier event where technology designers and leading vendors network and discuss IT innovations impacting the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. More than 150,000 professionals from those services who reside in the San Diego area depend on the open discussions and valuable learning opportunities that WEST provides. The event enables senior military and government officials to gain valuable feedback directly from sea service warfighters. Industry leaders learn about military requirements and connect with decision makers as well as operators in a professional environment away from the office. Please join us at WEST 2017, Feb. 21-23, San Diego Convention Center.

NCS has a long history of being a reliable supplier and innovator to the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. At WEST 2017 NCS will engage with senior military and government officials and IT administrators to discuss the challenges in obtaining, operating and managing rugged and secure computing resources.

At WEST 2017 NCS will showcase its comprehensive portfolio of computing solutions, including the Cirrus Family of virtual zero client end point devices. In addition, NCS will demonstrate its industry-leading SecureView solution. SecureView is a low-cost, multiple-independant-levels of security workstation-based technology which allows a single computer to host multiple guest VMs running at different classification levels. NCS will also showcase Getac rugged laptops and tablets, which provide reliability in the most demanding environments while delivering best-in-class performance.

Secure Desktop Computing for Government

Posted by Katie Callahan on Feb 10, 2017 11:05:02 AM

Modernize Access to Secure Government Networks With SecureView

Many government agencies require the use of communications networks beyond the Internet because of the need for superior privacy and security. Specific networks provide additonal levels of privacy and classified security. Examples of these networks include NIPRNet (private IP network), SIPRNet (classified), and JWICS (top secret). Implementing access can be as simple as using dedicated PCs for specific communications. For a user, multiple hard drives (dedicated to SIPRNet or JWICS, for example) are accessed by a KVM switch. This is common throughout the Department of Defense and in the intelligence community.

An important and emerging trend however, is modernization and simplication of the old network-access model. Today, more and more agencies use multiple guest Virtual Machines (VMs) to access different classification levels. Today, these agencies are turning to SecureView, developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).

Portable Desktop Virtualization in Healthcare

Posted by Katie Callahan on Feb 6, 2017 3:56:43 PM

Putting the Virtual Desktop on the Move In Hospitals

The annual HIMSS17 healthcare IT conference begins in Orlando in two weeks. NCS will be at Booth #5644. Virtualization will be one of the prime IT topics at HIMSS17. Many healthcare institutions are turning to virtualization to improve IT manageability, reduce complexity, reduce costs and dramatically improve data security.

VDI is a broad subject, and more and more administrators are looking for payoffs outside servers in the data center. As administrators look to the endpoint or desktop level, there is still some confusing over labeling. Endpoints may be called thin clients or zero clients. In fact, a Google search for zero clients will return mostly thin client desktops. So a legitimate question may be, what's the difference?

Rapidly Deployable IT Infrastructure Allow Administrators to Be Better Prepared During a Period of Rapid Change

Posted by Katie Callahan on Jan 26, 2017 11:25:44 AM

With a regularly scheduled change in government, IT administrators in agencies and departments may face questions involving staffing and spending levels based on the plans and expectations of the new management team. While uncertainty may be the norm, it is a reasonable expectation that natural disasters, trouble spots and conflicts will inevitably arise possibly challenging IT readiness.

To better address these type of situations, NCS Technologies has created a "be prepared" capability that makes possible the rapid deployment of IT infrastructure into the field without the complexity, weight and footprint of traditional solutions.

NCS offers a wide variety of NCS, Getac and HP Enterprise-branded data center and endpoint solutions integrated into rugged transit cases. These solutions are capable of supporting large numbers of clients in the field without losing centralized control while reducing complexing and delivering ease of maintenance.
