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 a significant portion of the workforce continues to Work From Home (WFH).


This trend looks to continue throughout the year as employers balance the ongoing pandemic with the slow initial rollout of vaccines. It is also likely that WFH will evolve into a permanent option for many in the workforce going forward.

NCS is a leading supplier of virtual desktop technologies to the government, military and commercial markets such as healthcare, finance and retail. 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 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. Security concerns are addressed within the data center. 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.

Teradici All Access Licensing Plan

Teradici's licensing plan enables the lowering of IT costs and reduction of admin time. Existing applications are easily migrated as needed.

All Access allows the IT manager to manage, optimize and future proof any data center and zero client deployment. Datacenter elements and end points are always up to date, managed efficiently and supported by Teradici. Teradici All Access subscribers get exclusive access to cloud access software, PCoIP Management Console Enterprise, firmware upgrades, resources and support.
