NCS Recommends Teradici All Access For Desktops

Posted by Katie Callahan on Oct 29, 2018 2:30:42 PM

Sound Strategy for Desktop Virtualization

NCS works closely with Teradici, the creator of PCoIP desktop virtualization technology. PCoIP securely delivers applications or workspaces from the cloud or datacenter to the endpoint. This technology compresses, encrypts and rapidly transports pixels to end-user devices. More than 10 million endpoints use PCoIP.

NCS offers a portfolio of seven different highly innovative PCoIP-enabled desktops and laptops that are used in healthcare, civilian government, military, retail and industry.

The PCoIP protocol transfers only image information in the form of pixels, so no business information ever leaves the cloud or data center. PCoIP technology is designed to deliver a high performance user experience for workers using even the most graphics-intensive applications.

For efficiency and value in managing its virtualized endpoints, NCS recommends its customers use the Teradici All Access Plan.
