Work From Home Using NCS Zero Client VDI

Posted by Katie Callahan on Nov 9, 2020 10:48:55 AM

Desktop Virtualization Provides Secure WFH

NCS Technologies delivers zero client VDI solutions for desktops and mobility that are secure, cost effective and easy to use and administer. Maintaining strong security policies are now even more important as many parts of the workforce have shifted dramatically to Work From Home (WFH).

NCS is a leading supplier of virtual desktop technologies to the government, military and commercial markets such as healthcare. In the last five years, our desktop and laptop solutions have been recognized for their strong security and effortless portability. NCS devices powered by Teradici software will help IT managers maintain security and save money.

The Challenge of WFH IT Security

IT managers understand that regular work PCs used in the home are vulnerable to security breaches. It's common that work computers may be used by family members. In addition, a worker may not follow corporate security policies as diligently when working in the home environment.

NCS Zero Clients Meet the Security Test

For many administrators, using zero clients is the best solution for security concerns.  NCS Zero Clients are managed by VMware Horizon software and use the ultra-secure Teradici PCoIP remote display protocol.

NCS Zero Clients have no local OS. The operating system resides in the data center. Therefore, there is no persistent user data, no patches, updates or antivirus software needed. Of the various ways to virtualize at the endpoint, zero clients prove to be the most effective solution.

More About PCoIP

PCoIP is a high performance computer display protocol used in endpoint VDI. PCoIP from Teradici uses advanced compression to provide end users with rich content from the cloud or data center. PCoIP securely delivers applications or workspaces to the endpoint by compressing and encrypting pixels. More than 10 million VDI endpoints use PCoIP.  NCS partners with Teradici for desktop virtualization. To manage virtualized endpoints, NCS recommends the Teradici All Access Plan.
